Instead of looking at “Universal Bathrooms” as bathrooms for only the disabled, they must be seen as bathrooms that all people can comfortably and safely use. The Universal Bathroom must be a flexible and dynamic design that is adaptable to all varieties of people. Instead of a “one size fits all” type of a bathroom, the Universal Bathroom design supports the idea of personalization through design flexibility. (Preiser, pg 42.5)
