3 Toilet Seats to Improve Your Home

Upgrade your home with these different toilet seats.

In America, when it comes to the traditional toilet seat most are simple and common. People do not think about the idea of a newer and smarter toilet seat – and yes, we mean smarter. Even though we do not really think about it, toilet seats play a big role in our lives. I mean, how often do we use the bathroom? Newer and more advanced toilet seats can make your life simpler, easier, and healthier.

Here are three different toilet seats that you might want to consider if you feel like upgrading your bathroom and home:

Heated Toilet Seat

When you head to the bathroom in the middle of the night most of the time the bathroom just is not quite as warm as the rest of the house seems to be. Heated toilet seats take away that cold shock to your bottom when the toilet seat is typically cold. Generally, they start around $80 and move up depending on the quality and features. Remember that you get what you pay for. The most basic heated seat models warm up at just one setting, but the more expensive ones can be fine-tuned to your preference. You need a power outlet near the toilet to provide electricity, but you can install it yourself in minutes, and they install with ease. Heated seats are a contemporary touch to your bathroom and home.

Bidet Toilet Seat

A lot of people have heard of bidet toilet seats, but they do not necessarily know what they are called. In fact, nearly ¾ of Japanese households have them. Bidet toilet seats provide cleaning after you have done your business with a stream of fresh water. With many bidet models, you never have to touch or wipe yourself at all because there is a built-in warm air dryer. This means that you end up much cleaner and never have to worry about spreading germs at all, which is one of the greatest drawbacks associated with toilet paper usage. In the long run, a bidet toilet seat ends up paying for itself over time when you consider saving on toilet paper costs and improving your overall hygiene and health. Bidet toilet seats require a water source, so a certain amount of plumbing skill is required to install them. They start around $250, and the nicer you want them the more expensive they will be.

Smart Toilet Seat

Smart toilet seats are the most advanced form of electric toilet seats. The main things that differentiate a smart toilet are programmability and multiple functions. Typically, a smart toilet includes both a heated toilet seat and bidet, plus more. It gives you the ability to customize each to your preferences. Some of them spray cleaner into the toilet bowl before and after each use, raise and lower at the touch of a button, and spray warm air to comfort your bottom, and an air freshener to comfort your nose. Many also play music for you. Smart toilet seats start at $600 and the price goes up for the more advanced stuff.
