Installing a bidet costs around $1,090 on average. While costs range from $400 to $2,500, most homeowners pay between $800 and $1,560. These prices are for traditional standalone fixtures but costs could run as low as $80 for a toilet attachment.
A bidet is a way to clean yourself after using the bathroom by using water instead of toilet paper. While common in Europe, this bathroom fixture is gaining popularity in the US.
Just the installation for a bidet runs from $200 to $240. Because your bathroom is already connected to the proper water lines, the labor isn’t as intensive (or as costly) as other plumbing projects. However, if you need to install a properly vented drain (a must for bidets), that could easily drive up the price by $1,000.
The most expensive part of a bidet installation is the fixture itself. This project is usually twice or more the cost to install a toilet, which spans from $220 to $530.
Bidet prices can cost as low as $30 and as much as $6,900, varying by brand and type. Here are some of the most popular brands.
|Brand||Average Price Range||Types|
|Kohler||$170 - $6,900||Standalone units, faucet fixtures, toilet seats|
|TOTO||$370 - $1,180||Washlet (toilet seats)|
|TUSHY||$30 - $120||Travel bidet, toilet attachments|
|Omigo||$80 - $90||Toilet attachment|
A bidet toilet can cost anywhere from $80 to $6,900, though most homeowners pay less than $1,000 for the bathroom fixture itself.
Bidet toilet seats typically range from $170 to $2,650. This type of toilet seat replaces the existing one on a traditional toilet. Seats on the higher price end come with additional features, such as heating or a nightlight.
The average bidet attachment is $100, though some of the most popular brands offer attachments for $80 to $120. Expect to pay at least $120 for a water heating option.
Unlike toilet seats or standalone units, bidet attachments are a separate fixture that goes between your toilet and toilet seat. They’re usually the most affordable option but don’t offer as many features as a traditional bidet.
A traditional standalone bidet costs anywhere from $250 to $750 or more, not including installation. A standalone fixture is separate from your toilet. With installation, you can expect to pay around $220 for labor and additional plumbing materials.
Some bidet options are DIY-friendly, such as an attachment. For standalone fixtures or high-end bidet toilets, you’ll definitely want to contact a plumber. This type of job requires more knowledge and expertise.
Hiring a plumber costs between $50 to $200 per hour and most bidet installations only cost around $220. If you attempt a DIY installation and end up making a mistake, the cost to fix a toilet is $230 on average. Save yourself the risk (and money) and contact a plumber near you.
Bidets are eco-friendly because they reduce or eliminate the need for toilet paper. Interestingly enough, they use less water, despite functioning with water! This is because it takes almost 37 gallons of water to make one roll of toilet paper, compared to one-eighth gallons to use this bathroom fixture.
It only takes 30 minutes to install a bidet toilet seat. Installing a standalone fixture will take longer but nearly always takes less than a day to complete.
While bidets are more expensive than traditional toilets, they’ll save you money on buying toilet paper and are better for the environment. Just from cutting toilet paper costs alone, you could pay for this eco-friendly toilet alternative in the long run. It’s a worthy investment, as long as you think you’ll use it.
