Add-on units are even more affordable. Tushy’s bidet attachment shown here which affixes to any standard American toilet in less than 10 minutes costs $69. No plumbing or electrical are required. For a little more money you can get a Tushy that allows you to attach a hose to the hot water beneath your sink and have a warm-water bidet. It’s great for rental units in which you’re not allowed to make upgrades. There’s no air dryer so you still need to use a little toilet paper.
When smart toilets with these features originally came out plumber Dave Guy and his co-workers thought they were the “silliest things in the world” he says. Then a toilet company gave him one for free and encouraged him to try it out in his own home which he did. Now he has three. “They’re definitely a benefit in more ways than one” he says. “Music and heat they’re a little overkill though”.
The other roadblock is outlets. Smart toilets need electricity and most bathrooms don’t come with an outlet near the toilet. “The single biggest angst that consumers have about smart toilets is ‘How am I going to plug this in?’” Strang says. Toto encourages builders and homeowners to put outlets near toilets when building a home or remodeling a home even if you’re not installing a smart toilet now. You or a future homebuyer might want to have a smart toilet someday. And the cost is relatively inexpensive if you’re already renovating.
A playfully ornate bathroom takes its black and white seriously. Crisp stripes mix with glossy black paint elegant marble tiles and over-the-top gilded accessories. It’s kind of like the commode is wearing a tux to a party at the Great Gatsby’s house. This luxe bathroom combines silver crocodile wallpaper with a black marble wall; an all-white toilet would be a snore in such a dynamic bathroom. The black and white commode complements the bold eclectic paisley wallpaper in here.
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. Allis says lighting and integrated bidet functions are the fastest-growing features.
