How bidet seats help create a home bathroom spa

Across the United States, especially in urban areas, home prices have steadily risen in recent years. As a result, people are staying in their homes longer, rather than buying new. According to economist Mark Boud, on average, the existing American housing stock is 38 years old. Thus many homeowners are choosing to renovate. The bathroom, aided by new products like the bidet toilet seat, is one of the main rooms undergoing a makeover. 

Bathroom becomes a home spa

People have long viewed the bathroom as a purely functional space. Unlike the kitchen or living room where people gather, the bathroom tends to be all-business. The room has been seen as a necessity, not an amenity.

This thinking is beginning to change. As Americans seek more personal wellness, the bathroom is becoming a home spa. It’s now a place of nurturing self-care, rather than mere utility. In Kitchen and Bath Design News, writer Sarah Jenkinson highlights bidet toilet seats, like the Coway Bidetmega 200, as one of the key products leading the bathroom transformation. 

Introducing the bidet seat to the American bathroom

While the bidet has not been popular in American households until now, it is found in bathrooms throughout the world. In many places, the most common bidet has been the standalone type, a porcelain fixture that resembles a toilet in size. But, when a homeowner installs one of these fixtures, it often requires new water and drainage lines. The project can easily cost $2,000 or more.

No new fixtures

Now the bidet toilet seat gives people the refreshing clean of a bidet without the need for a new fixture. For example, the Coway Bidetmega easily fits on a standard toilet. It does not require a new water or drainage line, nor does it take up additional bathroom space. Users get all of the benefits of a bidet at a much lower cost. 

The next big thing

Monica Miller, an interior designer who specializes in bathrooms, believes the bidet seat will be the “next big thing” in washroom renovations. “It’s easy to retrofit,” she explains, “and all you need is an electrical outlet. They’re great.”

Jenkinson at Kitchen and Bath Design News notes that the bidet seat may seem like a luxury at first. But as people experience its benefits, it becomes a necessity. Indeed, this is her personal experience, as she confirms, “I never felt clean until I got my bidet seat.”

The sleek design of the Coway Bidetmega 200 makes it the perfect choice for your home bathroom renovation. Plus, its two-step cleaning process will leave you feeling more clean and refreshed than ever before.


1Coway air purifiers have been proven to trap dust, pollen, dander, viruses and bacteria in the air based on KCL (Korea Conformity Laboratories) testing.They have been tested in a 30㎥ size chamber according to the Korea Air Cleaning Association standard (SPS-KACA 002-132:2022 Modified) to measure the 0.01㎛ size of particle removal rate. It was tested on maximum airflow speed in normal room temperature and humidity conditions. The performance may vary in the actual living environment of customers.

3Aerosol test conducted in a Biosafety level 3 laboratory with two Coway air purifier models, Coway Airmega 250 and 400 for removal of SARS-CoV-2 Aerosol by US based MRI Global, a not-for-profit laboratory and partner of US Department of Defense. The test was conducted in a 13.1ft3 chamber. Virus was aerosolized for 15 minutes and the product was turned on high for 2 minutes. Result showed each product effectively removed over 99.98% of the SARS-CoV-2 in 2 minutes. This is a result from a laboratory experiment condition and result may vary in different conditions. This result does not imply it kills SARS-CoV-2 or prevents the transmission of Covid-19. Coway Airmega 250S and 400S are identical to the tested models and has equal performance with an additional mobile connectivity function.

5The coverage area of the air purifier is based on an area where the air cleaner can make two air changes per hour (ACPH). An air change per hour translates to how many times an air purifier can clean an area, assuming the height of a ceiling to be 8 ft, in one hour. Therefore ** means two air changes per hour means that the cleaner can clean the area once every 30 minutes and * means air changes per hour means that the air purifier can clean the area once every 60 minutes.
