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.
Remodeling a bathroom for someone who is aging in place is very different than one based on aesthetics or home value. If you or a loved one are remodeling with an eye to your future needs, there are some very important issues to consider before you start and as you are going through the process. From design to safety to ease of use, remodeling a bathroom will take time and effort, and there will be costs involved.
