If you are going to redesign your bathroom it would be best to cut back the cast iron pipe as far as possible and replace it with PVC piping of the same size. Cast iron piping was used many years ago and at that time we were not using as many chemicals as we do now, for insatance some of the chemicals used to unclog drains has acid in themand this will slowly eat away at galvanized and iron pipes. PVC piping is impervious to most chemicals and is much cheaper and easier repair or place.
I hope this helps you, good luck.

PVC piping is much better for a few reasons 1) it is easier to repair or replace 2) it is impervious to most chemicals and chemicals with acid and will not corrode or have reaction to drain cleaners as iron piping most usually does.

I have included three picture examples to explain how to install a bidet in your house or apartment.
The first picture is a handheld spray hose type bidet that has a hanger to mount on the toilet tank by raising the lid and hanging on the tank and then replace the lid. If you choose this type you would need a two tools, a pair of pliers or crescent wrench or channel locks any combination of these. Then you would turn off the water and attach the adapter per the instructions, then connect the hose etc. here is a link to this type https://www.amazon.com/Fuentes-300-Function-Stainless-Attachment/dp/B01MXOG8RB/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1488498660&sr=8-6&keywords=spray+hose+bidet
The second is a bidet that you mount under your toilet seat and only takes a large screw driver, and again a couple pairs of pliers to install this one per the instructions. Here is a link to this type https://www.amazon.com/Astor-Non-Electric-Mechanical-Attachment-CB-1000/dp/B003TPGPUW/ref=sr_1_5?s=kitchen-bath&ie=UTF8&qid=1488499177&sr=1-5&keywords=bidet
The third picture is an adapter only. Install this one per the instruction using the same tools as in the first example and the you can buy any type hose you like to put on the adapter (this route is a little cheaper than the first). here is a link to the adapter, https://www.amazon.com/T-adapter-Shut-off-Connector-Handheld-Polished/dp/B00JIG4AGM/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1488498794&sr=8-15&keywords=spray+hose+bidet+adapter
All of these are easy to install and can be completed in less than 30 minutes, make sure to turn off the water before you start.
