Important considerations for comfort height toilets and accessible bathroom design

To make sure your comfort height toilet meets the requirements of your accessible bathroom space, there are several things you should consider. These include:

  • Installation position- its important to position the toilet in a way that is easiest for you to access and where handrails and other safety devices can be installed if necessary. As a result, you may need to reconsider or change your bathroom layout to achieve the most practical outcome for your space. You should also remember that comfort height toilets can be installed in the corner of the room too, if this would be more beneficial for your requirements.
  • Floorspace and layout- you will also need to consider the available floorspace, and ensure that there is plenty of room for opening of cabinet doors or the shower door for maximum safety.
  • Style and design- finally, you should also consider the style and design of the toilet itself. Comfort height toilets are available in a range of styles and designs from contemporary back to the wall toilets, to traditional close coupled toilets. As such, you can choose the best option for your space.
