When designing a bathroom that will be used daily by peoples with a variety of mental and physical disabilities, the type and location of the door(s) should be one of the most important considerations in your design.   Whether utilizing a full-swing hinge to add extra inches, constructing a pocket door or entirely eliminating the door, an educated designer can create a bathroom that is universally accessible (Miley).
