Ample Knee Space Allows Seated Use of Bathroom

Universal Design Bathroom Features Adequate Knee Space

Have you ever thought what it would be like to use your bathroom sink sitting down? Is there enough room to get your legs under the sink?   Several methods are used to provide knee space, including open knee space without a vanity cabinet, or adaptable solutions such as fold-back or self-storing doors. Pipe protection is provided to prevent contact with hot or sharp surfaces.
