Bidet faucets come in a wide range of styles and designs, with many features and options. They can be quite expensive, especially if you consider the cost of installation, and that the faucet will be a permanent feature in your bathroom. Therefore, it is important to consider all of your options carefully before buying. The best bidet faucet for you will meet your hygienic needs while matching the style and color scheme of your bathroom.

The two main differences between types of bidet faucets are the style of spray and the number of handles. One handled styles typically have a horizontal spigot which sprays an arc of water from the rear of the bidet. Two handled bidet faucets usually have a vertical spray, which shoots up from the basin.

For the most part, the choice of a one or two handled bidet faucet is a matter of preference. Some users may find that the single handle is easier to adjust. Two handled vertical sprays are more comprehensive than horizontal sprays. The horizontal spray has a limited range and may not adequately reach all areas which need to be cleaned.

Some bidets have a combination of sprays. Since they offer both horizontal and vertical sprays, combination bidet faucets are the most functional of all styles. Some bidets may also have an air dryer, massaging or pulsing water sprays, molded seats, or heated rims. Extras will probably be more expensive, so it is important to establish your budget allowance for a bidet before shopping.

The best method of choosing a bidet is to go to a bathroom fixture showroom. Consider the number of handles and the style of spray, and if possible, turn the bidet on to see how it works. If you find that you do not have a preference for single or double handles, choose the same style as the other handles in your bathroom. Aesthetically, it makes sense to chose the same number of handles for all bathroom fixtures.

The same rule applies for color and style. If your other bathroom fixtures are brushed nickel, in a sleek minimalist style, the bidet faucet should match. If the fixtures are traditional, buy a traditional bidet faucet. They come in a wide variety of styles and colors, so there is no need to purchase a bidet faucet that does not match your other fixtures.

An alternative to a full bidet is the attachable bidet faucet. This is an add-on to a toilet seat, which provides a horizontal stream of water from underneath the rim. Depending on the style, the attachable bidet faucet may have hot and cold water, an air dryer, and massaging or pulsing features. This is a good choice if your bathroom does not have room for a full bidet.
