Can you make a hinged step that folds up for sink use and down for toilet duty?

And yes, please, more knee room would be great!

This thread title reminds me of a song I learned in Girl Scout camp a "couple" of years ago.....


Do your ears hang low?
Do they wobble to and fro?
Can you tie them in a knot?
Can you tie them in a bow?
Can you throw them over your shoulder like a continental soldier?
Do your ears hang low?

I'm trying to think of how we could adapt "Is your toilet too high?" to that tune. Hmmmmmm.......

Is your bum too low?
Does it wobble to and fro?
Can you get it on the seat?
Does it almost reach your feet?
Can you lift it shape it flaunt it like the reigning queen of Derriere?
Is your bum too low?

I have seen models that had arm rest so you could support your weight with your elbows, but the entire cubicle was one big porcelain walk-in toilet thingie. I just always have this vision of those desert robes and splatters and...well, I think I'd better stop with the visualizations now.

I guess having the toilet too high is a better problem to have than the toilet being too low! YIKES!

I always thought it was because I'm short (5'-7") but the floor is about 4 inches to low in front of our toilet for my feet to reach it. We have a single step stool from Camping World for our 7 year old son to stand on to reach the toilet and I usually put one foot in the shower (We have the same shower/toilet arrangement you have plus a sink in there, too.) and one foot on that stool. It is exactly level with the platform the toilet sets on so I guess the toilet isn't too tall, it's just the floor isn't high enough?
