Feeling Flush

Throughout the 18th century, only the wealthiest European homes had bidets, which were often decorated with fancy adornments such as rosewood veneer, gilded bronze and crystal flakes.

Hundreds of years later, the electronic bidet hit the market in 1960, combining the bidet with the toilet, and it slowly began to make its way into global culture. There are now a variety of shower toilets available on the market to suit all budgets.Manufactures such as Geberit, TOTO and Duravit are leading the way bringing new designs and advanced technology to market.
