Bathroom / September 4, 2018 / Romina Doran
That could mean expanding the current bathroom you have, or simply rearranging it so it works better for someone who needs more space in which to maneuver. No matter which you choose, adequate clearance is essential. It is not just about getting a wheelchair into the space, but about having enough room to transfer to the toilet and tub or shower, as well as turning around without hitting walls.
A wider bathroom door is also easier to accommodate a walker, cane, or crutches. No matter what type of aid you may need in the future, you will be able to access your bathroom. It is not just the door that needs extra clearance. Everything you do in the bathroom will require extra room for a walker or wheelchair, or any other type of aid you may need to get around.
