1. Bidet Attachments:
Bidet attachments are a popular introductory choice for those looking to add bidet functionality to their existing toilets. These attachments typically cost between $30 to $100. They are easy to install requiring zero modifications to your toilet, and come with basic features such as adjustable water pressure and nozzle position. Most models will be cold spray only, however we can point you towards models that can utilize hot water as well.

2. Handheld Bidets:
Handheld bidets, also known as bidet sprayers, are another cost-effective option. These are handheld devices that attach to the toilet's water supply and can be used to spray water for cleaning. Handheld bidets usually cost between $20 to $80, depending on the brand and features.

3. Bidet Seats:
Bidet seats are more advanced than attachments, as they replace your existing toilet seat and most models will require an electric outlet nearby. They are our most popular product because you can get many features for a modest price. There are a wide range of options and features available in bidet seats that we talk about in our Buyers Guide such as heated seats, warm water spray, air drying, and many adjustable settings. You can expect to pay anywhere from $300 to $1000 or more for a bidet seat, but the $400-$500 range will get you a well equipped model that you can depend on.

Standalone Bidets:
Standalone bidets are separate fixtures that are installed next to the toilet. These fixtures are the classic style of bidets that have been used since the 17th century. They are more common in European countries but are gaining popularity in other parts of the world as well. Standalone bidets can cost anywhere from $200 to $1000 or more, depending on the brand, design, and features. 

Bidet translates to "pony" in French, since you sit on it like a horse.

5. Integrated Bidet Toilets:
Bidet toilets are the latest trend in bidet technology, offering a range of high-tech hands-off features such as self-cleaning nozzles and bowls, automatic flushing, and automatic opening/closing lids. They are a great choice if you need a new toilet or are renovating, and cost anywhere from $500 to $10000 or more depending on the brand and features. Below are two examples of bidet toilets.

Factors Affecting Cost: Several factors can affect the cost of a bidet, including the brand, quality, features, and installation requirements. Higher-end bidets from well-known brands with advanced features will naturally cost more than basic models. Additionally, installation costs should be considered, especially for bidet toilets that may require professional installation.

Conclusion: In conclusion, the cost of a bidet can vary widely depending on the type, brand, and features. Basic bidet attachments and handheld bidets are affordable options for those on a budget, while bidet seats and integrated bidet toilets offer more features but come at a higher price. Ultimately, the cost of a bidet is an investment in hygiene, comfort, and sustainability, and choosing the right bidet depends on your budget and personal preferences.
