Users comments
The inspector approved protecting the window at the shower with a curtain. The user appreciates the fact that the window can still be opened to air out the room.
The user finds it convenient to have the toilet next to the shower. That way he can move to the shower stool from the toilet or from the wheelchair.
It is important for him to have many cabinets for storage of toiletries and incontinence items. He mounted them on the wall so they do not take up maneuvering space in the bathroom.
