Indian99 You are right about it not being "wall hung". However, I think is does much the same thihng as a wall hung because there is no dead space behind the seat AND it doesn't stick out into the room as much as a regular toilet. We are planning to redo our downstairs bath room in the next year to make it ADA friendly. We are both still in good health but since we are re-doing the space, why not make it more functional for the future.

Another idea for a door that does not swing into the room is to install a very nice, wood accordion door. I will be renovating a 1/2 bath in a cabin where I do not want to move the existing plumbing, and where the original builders roughed in the plumbing necessary for a shower. I need a shower large enough for my Big Guy, but hopefully leave room for storage of towels and toilet paper. The existing toilet and vanity (single sink) are new and white. Tiles in the shower will be white with possible a glass tile accent strip of some kind. Shower will be a glass enclosure. In this cabin, the walls are tongue and groove wood which I do not want to paint or mess with their rustic charm. Haven't decided on flooring yet, but leaning toward a simple tile for ease in cleaning....or perhaps a very light "wood tile". Will probably mount towel racks higher up on wall than usual to allow for my cats' litter cube to between the shower and the toilet.

Clear glass showers look great but what happens after a few months of hard water? Has anyone tried barndoors.? Plumbing won’t allow pocket door. Has anyone tried an L shaped vanity with two sinks in this Br size and arrangement. Appreciate article and comments.
