Bathroom doors can open inwards or outwards. Most people prefer to have their bathroom door open outwards because it is easier to use.
When people are in the bathroom, they usually want to be able to open and close the door quickly and easily. If the door opens inwards, then you will need to stand on one side of the door while you pull it towards yourself. This can be difficult if you are carrying something heavy or have a bad back.
If you choose an outward opening door, then you can simply walk through the doorway without having to exert any effort at all. It is much easier to operate an outward opening door with just one hand than an inward opening one.
It is also important not to forget about accessibility when choosing between inward and outward opening doors for your bathroom. If you have mobility issues or other disabilities, then it may make sense for you to install an outward opening door so that it is easier for anyone who needs wheelchair access or uses crutches or walking sticks etc.
