A bidet is an ideal complement to your toilet. It addresses a need for enhanced cleanliness and hygiene, after using the toilet for example.
At Villeroy & Boch, you can find a wide selection of wall-mounted and floor-standing bidets in coordinating designs to our toilets. Discover the benefits of bidets and how to find the perfect bidet for your bathroom.
Why you should opt for a bidet in your bathroom.
In Europe, bidets are widely used mainly in Mediterranean countries. A bidet is generally a low washbasin beside the toilet for hygienic cleaning of sensitive areas after using the toilet.
Benefit: cleaning in a flow of warm water is very thorough and hygienic and – unlike toilet paper – very gentle on the skin. Cleaning with water also creates a pleasantly fresh sensation. If you wish, you can of course use the bidet after cleansing with toilet paper.
Thanks to its optimal height and easy access, a floor-standing or wall-mounted bidet is also ideal for washing your feet. Whatever you use it for and whichever installation you choose, there are two different methods of use: cleaning in a stream of water from the bidet taps or closing the outlet and filling the basin with water. Try it for yourself and experience the comfort and hygienic freshness of a Villeroy & Boch bidet.
Wall-mounted or floor-standing – which bidet is best for your bathroom?
Should you choose a wall-mounted bidet or would you prefer a floor-standing version? The decision will generally depend on whether you have chosen a wall-mounted or floor-standing toilet. For harmonious bathroom design, your toilet and bidet should always be coordinated and ideally come from the same bathroom collection. At Villeroy & Boch, you can find coordinating toilet and bidet combinations from a wide range of collections and in different styles.

Wall-mounted bidets come in a wide variety of designs and have become the preferred installation option for modern bathrooms in particular. They are mounted in your chosen location on the wall. A frame system is required, however this is now standard in many new builds. Benefit: Easier cleaning of the floor under the bidet in comparison to floor-standing bidets. It can also be mounted at different heights – ideal for tall people.
A floor-standing bidet with a pedestal is often included in classic bathroom collections. Its attractive design makes it the perfect complement to an elegant floor-standing toilet. In old buildings, the outlet often leads into the floor which means that the only possible option is a floor-standing bidet, as this configuration is not compatible with the installation of a wall-mounted model.
Points to note when installing a bidet.
Whether you opt for a wall-mounted or floor-standing model, a bidet is usually positioned directly beside the toilet. This allows it to be used immediately after using the toilet, and paired with a toilet in matching dimensions it creates a consistent look in the bathroom. Compact bidets are a space-saving alternative for smaller bathrooms, with a length of just 480 mm in comparison to the standard 560 mm. > Go to the Subway and Architectura compact bidets
