From 3 to 93, bidets are for all ages

From coast to coast and beyond, Americans are learning to love the bidet. While some trends appeal only to people of a certain age—like the latest dance craze—bidets are beloved across generations.

Living in Place

According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, from 2018 through 2036, 10,000 people a day will celebrate their 65th birthday. As baby boomers become senior citizens, many are choosing to age in their own homes, rather than move to an assisted-living community. Designers in the Living in Place movement recommend simple additions to the bathroom, including a bidet, to help senior citizens. Some people may experience a loss of mobility over time, and bidets remain easy to use.

Millennials and Gen X

Generation X and millennials are using bidets for two reasons. For starters, they share a widespread concern for the environment. Thankfully, bidets have a lighter impact on Mother Nature than traditional American bathroom habits. Second, these generations are quick to adopt technology that improves their daily lives, such as a luxury bidet seat.

Potty training with a bidet seat

When children switch from diapers to the toilet, one of the biggest challenges is making sure they wipe thoroughly. People of all ages can have this problem, but it’s especially tough for little ones. Fortunately, water cleansing is just as beneficial for children as for older people, and kids can quickly learn the bidet habit when they toilet train. Some parents put fun (and removable!) stickers on the bidet seat buttons. This will help show young kids how to use the features.

Because everyone, regardless of age, feels better after a thorough clean, the Coway Bidetmega 200 was designed for people with a wide variety of needs. Users can easily adjust the nozzle position, water temperature, water pressure and more with a touch of a button. The Coway Bidetmega also includes a Child Mode for custom settings for smaller bodies.
