According to wikipedia, they define a bidet as a  low-mounted plumbing fixture or type of sink intended for washing the genitalia, inner buttocks, and anus.  There are an electric bidet and non electric bidet.  It is one eco-friendly product, so let us explore the benefits it can give.

  4. It uses less water.

If you are considering getting a bidet for your family’s benefit, hire professionals to install them for you.  It is really a great help for the environment to be conscious about the natural resources we are using.  Besides, it is totally hygienic to use a bidet nowadays.

Having a hard time choosing from different flooring available in the interior decorations market such as laminate flooring, engineering hardwood flooring, or solid hardwood floors?

Laminate flooring is one of the most popular choice of flooring.  It is said that it is easy to maintain, inexpensive and fairly durable relative to its cost.  But it is not a real wood;  not as real wood as engineered wood and hardwood are.

Engineering wood flooring is said to be an alternative to solid hardwood floors.  This kind of flooring is basically a sandwich of finish wood and plywood.  The side which we walk on is the finish wood, and underneath the finish wood is the plywood is comprises 80% to 90% of the floor.

Solid hardwood flooring is solid wood all the way through its layers.  This kind of flooring is classified into unfinished and prefinished.  Unfinished is cheaper but requires light sanding while prefinished doesn’t need any.  One of the most popular hardwood flooring is the bamboo flooring, an environment-friendly product.

Among the three, have you decided which kind of flooring you would like to install in your house?
