Don't be narrow-minded when you plan space for a walker, wheelchair, or scooter. You’ll want enough space to be able to move around freely. For wheelchair clearance, you'll need:
- 36 inches for outside doors
- 32 inches for inside doors
To widen doorways, it may be enough to replace standard door hinges with expandable offset ones. They give you a little more space. Or you could remove the door and even the doorframe. Rearrange furniture so you have wide paths and easy access to things like light switches and thermostats.
