In this article I’m going to take you through my picks for the top bidet faucets.
By bidet faucet, I mean the faucet that you attach to a standalone bidet. This is different from a bidet sprayer. A bidet sprayer is a handheld device, like a mini shower, that you install onto your toilet.
If you’re here looking for information on bidet sprayers, head over to my guide on the best handheld bidets, where you’ll find what you’re looking for.

The best bidet faucet for a single-holed bidet is the Kohler purist bidet faucet. It comes with temperature memory so you can turn it on and off at the same temperature. The best two-handled bidet is the Moen Eva bidet faucet, which comes with a lifetime warranty.
Best bidet faucets
Here are my top picks for the best bidet faucets. I’ve featured a range of styles and price points so there should be something to suit everyone’s needs.
Moen Eva Two-Handle Bidet Faucet
Are you someone that gets easily bored with their decor? A Moen bidet faucet might be for you. They come with what’s called M.Pact technology.
M.Pact technology lets you swap out the visible fixtures on your bidet without messing around with the plumbing underneath.
So, if you decide you want to change the style of your bidet faucet, you can do it yourself without any hassle.
The first time you buy a Moen bidet faucet, you’ll need to install the M.Pact valve. This is sold separately to the faucet (linked here on amazon). It’s the same for every style in the Moen range.
Both the valve and the faucets are backed with Moen’s lifetime warranty.
Moen bidets are two-handled and offer two spray modes: a filling spray and a rosetta spray. The middle ‘tap’ allows you to switch between the two modes.
There are several different styles of tap, but all of them come with the same features. I’ve showcased the Eva style here, which comes in brushed nickel, chrome, and oil rubbed bronze.
Hansgrohe Focus Bidet Faucet
Hansgrohe is a German-based company that strives to offer the very best to its customers. Over the years, they’ve developed several technologies to help you make the most out of your water.
One such technology that all their bidet faucets are equipped with is QuickClean. The faucet’s nozzle is made from anti-limescale silicone material, meaning any build-ups can be easily wiped away with your finger. The nozzle also aerates the spray, making it gentler on your skin.
All the bidet faucets have a ball joint that allows the user to adjust the spout by up to +/- 20 degrees. This means everyone in the family can enjoy the bidet as you can move the nozzle until it’s in the right position for you.
They have a durable ceramic cartridge for leak-proof use and a boltic lever lock to prevent the handle from becoming loose. Every bidet also comes with an easy to use pop-up drain kit.
The single-holed faucets come with multiple handle designs and finishes to fit seamlessly into any bathroom. I’ve featured the focus, but you can see more designs here (amazon).
KOHLER Vertical Spray Bidet Faucet
Kohler is a well known and respected bathroom company. If you buy a bidet faucet from them, you can be sure that it will stand the test of time. All Kohler finishes are tarnish and corrosion-resistant.
Most of the options they offer are double-handed and allow installation on 8″-16″ centers. They have a vertical spray design, and the levers are indexed with red and blue coloring, so it’s easy to see which is which.
The main selling point of the Kohler bidet faucets is the Ultraglide ceramic disks. The valve comprises two ceramic disks that resist deterioration or mineral build up with long-term water exposure. This means you can live happily in the knowledge that your bidet faucet won’t leak or fail prematurely.
The faucets come with a vacuum breaker, and the handles are pre-assembled on the valves for easier installation.
There is a range of different styles, and prices vary quite a lot between the different styles.
When I contacted Kohler to ask about the price differences, they said: ‘The main difference with pricing is the amount of time spent manufacturing the faucets. The materials used are the same in all lines. However, some are more expensive due to the amount of time and work put in to get the design.’
KOHLER Purist Horizontal Bidet Faucet
Kohler also has some horizontal spray options. The features are mainly the same as with the vertical options so I won’t go into too much detail again.
But I’ve included this separately because I wanted to talk about the temperature memory function. You can turn the faucet off at any temperature and when you turn it back on again it will be the same temperature. This saves you time and water faffing around with the tap everytime getting it to the correct temperature.
There’s also a high-temperature limit which lets you preset a maximum temperature so you can be sure no one is going to scald themselves.
Kingston Brass Triple Handle Bidet Faucet
Kingston’s mission is to provide cost-effective, high-quality bathroom fitting to their customers, and that’s exactly what their bidet faucets offer.
Kingston brass sells 3-handled bidet faucets. The middle lever lets you adjust the height of the spray to suit you. If you have lots of people in your family this can come in useful as you’re unlikely to want the same spray height as your child.
The water flow is 1.5 GMP at 60 psi which is good if you’re trying to cut down your water usage. The lower the flow rate the less water that comes out of the tap, but this doesn’t affect how fast or hard the water comes out (i.e the pressure is not affected).
One downside to this faucet set is that some people find it difficult to install because some of the installation pipes aren’t flexible.
GROHE Single-Lever Bidet Mixer
A budget option is the Grohe bidet mixer. This one comes with a pop-up waste drain and has a metal lever, but some parts of the faucet are plastic. The chrome finish is layered to ensure a mirror shine and a scratch-resistant surface.
Grohe carries out both internal and external testing on their products to ensure their quality. But if something does go wrong, you’re covered by a 5-year warranty.
Grohe is one of the few faucet manufacturers to make their cartridges in-house. The cartridge is the part inside the faucet that controls the water flow. Grohe coats their cartridges with a special Teflon lubricant to ensure a smooth flow. Gone are the days of splashing and spluttering is their slogan.
This won’t be the most durable product on the market. But if you don’t need something super robust, it will do a good job.
Beelee Bidet Faucet
Another cheap and cheerful choice is this bidet faucet from Beelee. It’s a single lever, single hole design.
The lever is metal, and the whole tap comes with a chrome finish that will fit in well in a modern bathroom. The nozzle is mounted on a ball joint, so you can easily adjust its angle.
Note that the bidet faucet doesn’t come with a drain plug, so you’ll need to purchase one of those separately if you need one.
As you might expect from a budget option, it won’t be as durable because some parts are plastic.
If you don’t use your bidet that often, this isn’t so much of a concern. But if you’re using it daily, you’ll probably be better off opting for one of the options above instead.
Bidet faucet buying guide
Whether you’re redesigning your whole bathroom or just need to replace some old bidet faucets, the choice out there can be overwhelming. Here’s my guide to what’s important when you’re looking for a new bidet faucet.
Types of bidet faucet
There are three types of bidet faucets:
- Single lever, horizontal spray
- Two handles, vertical spray
- Three handles, vertical spray
Single and double handled are the most common. If you have a pre-installed bidet you’ll be restricted by the number of installation holes you have in your bidet.
But if you’re purchasing a new bidet along with the faucets, you can pick which type you want.
If you have one ‘hole’ in your bidet, then you’ll have to opt for a single lever.
The lever controls the volume and temperature of the water. Single levers are quick and easy to use. They mean you waste less time playing around to get the exact temperature you want, which means less water is wasted. But you don’t have as much control over the precise temperature as you do with separate handles.
They come with a horizontal spray, which means the water sprays down into the bidet from above the rim. The angle is diagonal. Generally, men prefer horizontal sprays because they do a good job at cleaning your behind.
If you have three ‘holes’ in your bidet, then you can opt for a two or three handled design.
With two handles, you can control the hot and cold water separately to get the exact temperature you want. But it might take you a while to get there, leading to water being wasted. You can also have better control over the volume of water that comes out of the faucet.
The middle tap on the bidet can sometimes act as a diverter. If your bidet is fitted with this mechanism, it allows the water to be diverted into the bowl instead of directly upwards from the basin.
Three handle bidets have a hot tap, a cold tap and then a diverter tap.
Two and three handled sprayers come with a vertical spray hole that’s installed in the bidet basin. It shoots water straight up. Women tend to prefer these over the horizontal spray types.
On two or three handled bidet faucets, you can also choose the type of handle you have. There are lever handles, which are more modern, or the more traditional turning (cross) handles.
Faucet design and finish
Most of the brands have a range of different styles and finishes for you to pick from. Even if you’re not changing all your faucets at the same time, you should be able to find something that matches the look and feel of your current bathroom.
Brush nickel, polished chrome, matte black, and oil-rubbed bronze are common finishes for faucets.
Take a picture of your bathroom so when you’re shopping, you can better imagine what the faucets will look like once installed.
Budget is a tricky one here because you tend to get what you pay for with bidet faucets. Of course, don’t spend more than you can afford but bear in mind that in general, the more expensive the faucet, the longer it will last.
If a leak develops, you’ll have to buy replacement parts and potentially pay someone to install them if you don’t know how. Over time these costs can add up.
If you use your bidet a lot, I would go for a more durable option. If you don’t use the bidet regularly then you’ll be okay with a more budget option.
