UK: Bidets: Bidet Manufacturers & Suppliers
Although bidets are widely used on the continent of Europe, and are well known in the UK, bidets are virtually unknown in the USA. Similar in appearance to a toilet bowl, bidets incorporate a tap or upward jet. Users sit upon the bidet to wash their private parts. Bidets may also be used for washing the feet. Bidets are supplied, normally in white ceramic ware, as parts of bathroom suites with matching toilets and bathroom sinks. It is also possible to retro-fit a bidet attachment to an existing toilet. This replaces the toilet seat with a toilet seat which incorporates a bidet nozzle. Leading UK suppliers of bidets are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.

Bathstore: Bidets. Bathstore is one of the UK's leading retailers of bathroom fittings, selling through more than 150 stores and online. Bathstore offers more than 20 bidets, in both back-to-wall and wall-hung versions, which form parts of their range of bathroom suites. Their most popular back-to-wall bidet is the Euro Mono. This is a full back-two-wall bidet which stands on the floor and backs up to a rear panel which conceals all pipe work. The depth is only 560mm, with a comfortable width of 360mm. The bidet comes with one tap hole, suitable for all Bathstore bidet mixers. Bathstore's most popular wall-hung bidet is also from the Euro Mono range. By lifting the bidet off the floor, wall-hung versions make for easier floor cleaning. As with all wall hung sanitaryware, Bathstore strongly recommend the use of a steel supporting frame, such as their S-Frame system. This is particularly important in the UK, where plasterboard cavity walls are often standard in timber frame houses.
