One of the big lessons we all learned during the Great Toilet Paper Shortage of 2020 was this: washing is better than wiping!

Pandemic product shortages aside, there are lots of reasons that bidet cleansing is better than toilet paper. It gets you cleaner, for one! Plus it’s more comfortable, better for the environment, and easier on your wallet.

In other words, there’s no time like the present to give your bum the gift of a bidet!

Best Bidet Toilet for Small Bathrooms: TOTO Neorest EW

TOTO Neorest EW

If you have a small bathroom or simply want a bidet toilet with lots of wow factor, a wall hung unit is the way to go. The tank and supportive frame are concealed inside the wall, which saves floor space. Plus, the lack of a base makes it easy to clean around the toilet.

In addition to being a great toilet, the Neorest EW comes with just about every bidet feature you could want for a satisfying, hassle free cleanse.

Best Bidet Seat for Small Bathrooms: Eco Nova

Did you know that a standard bidet remote might not work reliably if your bathroom is really small?

It’s true! Most remotes use an infrared signal to communicate with the bidet seat, and this signal can get disrupted in super small spaces.

If you’ve got a fun-size bathroom or if your toilet is in a small nook, you might want to consider the only bidet with a radio frequency remote: the Eco Nova. Radio signals aren’t disrupted by walls, so the Eco Nova’s remote performs great no matter what your bathroom layout looks like.

Want to learn more? Here’s the full rundown of the Eco Nova’s pros and cons.

Honorable Mention: Bio Bidet BB-2000

Bio Bidet BB-2000 w/two remote options

The Bio Bidet BB-2000 offers fantastic features and has been on almost every top 5 list we’ve ever put out, so you might be thinking, “why isn’t it on THIS list?”

Here’s the scoop:

Over the past year, we’ve received an unprecedented amount of feedback from customers who’ve had problems with the BB-2000’s water heating system. This is unusual for a top of the line seat like the BB-2000, which usually gets rave reviews.

As a result, we simply couldn’t put the BB-2000 on our top 5 list this year, and it’s no longer included in our risk free trial promotion. We are optimistic that the next batch of BB-2000s will be problem-free and hope to include the seat on next year’s list.

How We Tested

All of the bidet toilets and seats on our best of 2022 list come with characteristics and features that we consider “essential”. Even more importantly, they represent a range of price points, so there’s something for every budget.

So what’s essential?

1. Customer Satisfaction Rating

To be included on our best of 2022 list, a bidet obviously needs to be a hit with customers. This means we take a close look at customer feedback and cross off any bidets that have gotten a lot of complaints.

We also look for bidets that address the needs our customers mention most often, such as:

  • Solutions for a loved one who needs help in the bathroom
  • Feeling totally fresh and clean after a poo
  • A luxurious bathroom experience
  • Symptoms that make it hard or painful to wipe

Our best of 2022 list includes bidets that address all of these needs and more!

2. Comfort & Convenience Rating

All the bidets on our best of 2022 list have the same basic features that set them apart from non-electric bidets:

Auto open bidet lid
  • Heated seat lets you choose the perfect temperature for your tush
  • Water heating system provides deliciously warm wash water
  • Adjustable nozzle position, water pressure and water temperature deliver optimal cleansing control
  • Front & rear wash modes remove waste more effectively and gently than wiping
  • Warm air drying eliminates the need for toilet paper altogether
  • Self rinsing nozzles flush themselves with clean water before and after each use
  • Wireless remote control – easier to operate than buttons on a side panel control
  • Wall-mounted docking station keeps the remote within easy reach so it never gets lost or drops in the toilet
  • Slow closing lid prevents obnoxious slamming
  • Safety seat sensor ensures that the bidet wash only operates if someone is seated so the bidet won’t spray water everywhere

3. Versatility

We know that bathrooms come in all sizes and designs, and that’s ok! Our best of 2022 list includes bidets that will work in a wide variety of bathrooms, whether small or large, simple or luxurious, modern or traditional.

Of the bidet seats we chose, most come in both round and elongated seat sizes, and some can even fit on French curve toilets. This means there’s an option for nearly every toilet. Plus, some of these seats are even available in white and beige, so you can easily match your bathroom’s color scheme.

When it comes to the bidet toilets on our list, we’ve included a range of styles and price points, making it easy to find one that’s perfect for your bathroom and your needs.

4. Hands on Testing

We’ve personally installed and tested every bidet seat on our best of 2022 list, so we know the pros and cons firsthand! In fact, many of our staff use these bidets in their own homes on a daily basis, which gives us unique insights into the features and flaws.
