A UNIQUE FIT FOR A UNIQUE BATHROOM
Have you been looking to make an easy and simple upgrade to your toilet? Or maybe you are looking to buy a new toilet and wondering if your bidet seat will fit. Researching can go a long way, but we did that research for you already.
Choosing a bidet toilet seat is a wonderful way to incorporate the benefits of a bidet into your home without the hassle of major bathroom remodeling. An attachable bidet simply fits on your existing toilet as either a replacement seat, or an additional installation over or under the seat that you have. You can find a bidet toilet seat to fit almost any type of toilet, but it’s important to know what you’re looking for when you’re shopping. If you don’t know what type of toilet you already have, you could end up with an attachable bidet that doesn’t fit properly.
There are two main types of toilets. These are known as one-piece or two-piece toilets. A one-piece toilet, as the name suggests, is all in one piece and does not have a separate tank. With a two-piece toilet, the tank and bowl are two separate pieces that have been bolted together. Most toilets are the two-piece variety. You can see a very clear distinction between the bowl and the tank. You will have more bidet options with a two-piece toilet than you will with a one-piece. If you’re considering an upgrade and are looking to purchase a new toilet, a two-piece model is the better bet.
The next thing you need to look at on your toilet is the shape of the seat. The seat will either be rounded or elongated. In most cases, you will be able to tell immediately which type of seat you’re looking at. With an elongated toilet seat, the seat is longer than it is wide. If you have a rounded seat, it is shaped more like a circle than an oval. If you’re unsure, measure from the hinge of the seat to the front of the bowl. An elongated seat will be about 18 1/2 inches while a rounded one will measure about 16 1/2.
DETERMINING THE BEST FIT
– 1- piece toilet or 2
– Round or Elongated
– French Curve or not with 1 piece toilet
– A bidet seat or a bidet attachment
Make a note of these two features in regards to your individual toilet. They will come in handy later when you’re deciding on a bidet system. It will be easier for you to find a full seat to fit your toilet if you have a two-piece system with an elongated seat. However, there are bidet systems that simply fit along the back of the toilet and do not replace the entire seat. These tend to be more versatile.
