Inward swing bathtubs are generally better than outward swinging bathtubs for a few reasons. First of all, inward swinging tub doors take up less space because the door opens into the tub whereas an outward swinging tub door would require more space to open outwards properly. Secondly, with an inward swinging tub there is a lesser chance of the tub door malfunctioning and opening while the tub is full of water, this is because the pressure from the water pushes against the tub door causing an even tighter seal. If an outward swinging tub door were to malfunction, all that water would flow outwards into the bathroom.
