[1] Shifting a toilet a small distance to comply with the centerline requirement need not be expensive. The important factor is maintaining the correct distance between the side grab bar and the toilet. Options include moving the partition on which the grab bar is mounted or installing an offset flange to shift the toilet. Another option is to mount the grab bar on a board attached to the side wall or partition. The board must extend 1 " below the grab bar and 18" above the grab bar to achieve the appropriate distance between toilet and grab bar.
