The History of the Bidet

Posted by

The bidet is a device that has changed so much since its inception. The very early bidets were made of wood at the base with a basin made of porcelain. Originally the bidet was meant to be used like a chair, whereas the person using it could sit comfortably. Often a very important and hygienic change that has taken place over time is the location of the bidet as they were originally kept in the bedroom and not the bathroom. Aren’t you glad that’s changed?

As is with most belongings, the more wealthy a person was, the more advanced and fancier their bidet would be. Many bidets made for royalty and other higher ups in France and Italy were frequently decorated ornately.

Over time, however, bidets began to resemble toilets more than anything else. And now, in modern day, installing a bidet can be as simple as adding an attachment to the toilet you already own. This is especially handy as it solves the problem most people used to have in the olden days in regards to their bidet not having a flushing mechanism. Not to mention, the very best change that has occurred since bidets came to fruition: you don’t have to be wealthy to own one!
