Shane Allis director of sanitary product marketing at Kohler says the integrated bidet function is something the company had in its Numi model six or seven years ago and is now becoming common in newer less-expensive lines a trend he expects to continue in the next few years.

The standard height for a toilet seat is 17 inches one inch lower than the standard height for a chair seat. However most manufacturers also produce at least some of their models in a “comfort” height which is typically 19 inches. From a medical perspective lower toilet seats are recommended for typical users. However for those who have trouble getting into and out of a sitting position (such as the elderly or even simply the very tall) the comfort-height seat may be easier to use. If you don’t find standard toilets to be an issue ignore the comfort option and worry more about the distance your toilet sits from the wall.

For example toilet manufacturer Toto employs 1.500 engineers across a range of sciences to study human behavior and create new products and technologies. So forget the image of a plunger; have a seat and check out what could be coming to a potty near you.
