Aging in place - best location for wall mount toilet?
Below are two pictures of same space though they may look a little different.
Main question I have is where is best location for the wall mounted toilet.
Can't go on the wall with the pocket door.
This bath has a curbless shower with a 5 ft radius for wheelchair turnaround, I'm trying to keep "aging in place" in mind though not a pure ADA bathroom so don't ask me about clearance beneath the sink, please.
Regarding the toilet, I thought it might be easier to move from a wheelchair to a toilet seat from the side, hence the first picture with a space next to the side of the toilet for a wheelchair. Not sure where to put "tall cabinet" in this first one.
Second picture is somewhat better esthetically and gives me a better place to put a towel bar and robe hook. Don't know if approach from the front in a wheelchair (or a walker) is really any better or worse. Will the tall cabinet get in the way in this second one? It can possibly be attached as a wall cabinet so as not to interfere with wheelchair beneath.?
I would like to hear anyone's opinions. There is lots of stuff I could write about why the layout is the way it is but thought I'd try to focus on main problem keeping me from finalizing the layout and that is the toilet location. Everything else, I'm fairly happy about (including washer/dryer stack outside the door and narrow depth vanity.)
