If you’ve got money to blow, deserve your own personal throne, and enjoy the unbeatable feeling of a bidet, then this article is for you. Here are some of the world’s most expensive bidet toilets.
Most Americans are a little perplexed the first time that they encounter a bidet. The first time that they walk into a five-star luxury hotel on the other side of the world and see a toilet seat complete with spinning gadgets and whirling cleaning nozzles is bound to raise at least one eyebrow.
Once you try one for a couple of days, however, you’ll never want to go back to your regular toilet paper routine.
With today’s technology, bidets have come leaps and bounds, and there are some pretty fancy “thrones” out there if you’ve got the cash to spend. Today, we’re going to be looking at five of the fanciest, most expensive bidet toilets that money can buy.
Looking for the Best Bidet Money Can Buy?
If you’re just looking for a bidet, the good news is that you’re not going to have to shell out tens of thousands of dollars. If you want the full package deal complete with a luxury throne, then you’ll have to shell out 5 to 10 grand, but that’s a story for another day.
There are some truly expensive toilets in the world, some are made of pure gold an inlaid with diamonds. The most expensive is out of this world on the International Space Station (valued at $19-million after you include the complimentary rocket ship delivery service).
INAX Regio ($7,350)
Do you really need a $7,000 toilet? That may be debatable, but if you’re looking for the best bidet toilet that you ever have used and probably ever will use, INAX has exactly what you need. They are Japan’s premier luxury toilet and bathroom engineers and their Regio unit is fully robotic and ready to use.
Approaching the toilet, you may be rather underwhelmed. It has a very simple, white porcelain color with a sleek, yet familiar design. However, don’t let its modest look fool you. As soon as you approach this toilet, its motion sensor will automatically raise the lid, your programmed theme song will begin to play and hidden LED lights will illuminate the bowl.
It has a fully heated seat so you never have to worry about those cold chills early in the morning. The INAX regio also has a built-in ionic deodorizer that begins to work as soon as it recognizes that somebody is sitting down on the seat. When you’re all finished, the retractable cleaning wands will extend and give you a soothing wash-down. Once the toilet recognizes you get up, the Regio will activate its room deodorizer, leaving your bathroom smelling as good as it did when you walked in.
Kohler Numi Toilet ($6,000)
Kohler has long been known for making some of the sleekest, boldest, and high-tech plumbing products on the market. When they designed their flagship Numi smart toilet, they didn’t leave out a single detail. Every square inch of this toilet was designed to create both a striking view and an above-average experience.
From the motion-activated seat that lifts and folds up like Optimus Prime from Transformers to the built-in seat and foot warmers, and advanced bidet technology, this is the toilet of the future. Besides giving you the wash of your life, however, it the Kohler Numi also features a integrated air dryer so you don’t have to use a single piece of toilet paper.
Duravit SensoWash With Starck 3 Toilet Set ($3,000)
Duravit specializes in creating intelligent and luxurious bathroom gear, but they’re especially proud of their Starck 3 line of toilets. When combined with their patented SensoWash bidet seat, this bidet-toilet combo is exceptional.
One of the coolest features of this bidet is that it can be programmed for two user profiles so that your housemate can choose their settings too. Both the seat and water temperature can be adjusted and the bidet wash itself features a self-cleaning wand, oscillating jets, and adjustable angles.
Toto Neorest 700H ($4,800)
If you’re looking for a luxurious toilet by Toto, then their top-of-the-line Neorest 700H model retails for just under $5,000. This model is a great competitor to look at if you like the features of the INAX Regio, but you want to save a couple of grand.
It has all of the high-tech features including seat and water warmers, air purifying system, motion-sensing seat, night light, and an oscillating bidet arm.
Bio Bidet IB-835 Integrated ($1,699)
Bio Bidet has come out with a brilliant all in one toilet bidet which is actually affordable. The best part is it comes with all the same features the more expensive bidet toilet combos come with but at a fraction of the price. Bio Bidet's version is new to the market but the early reviews have been amazing.
There you have it! These are the bidet toilets of millionaires. If you’re looking for a toilet seat that’s truly worth of being called your “throne,” then any of these will certainly do.
