Bathroom Design

Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting this guide. If you are working in California please note that some of the information in this guide is not correct for California residential code. Where it calls out for 21" clear in front of the toilets, California code calls for 24" for a 30" wide zone.

Thanks for posting. Just a word of caution, this isn't accurate for Michigan either. 




These are our code requirements, which I think are consistent with the IRC but may be state specific:





I take exception to their suggestion to use 32 wide doors minimum, and suggesting 36" wide doors to bathrooms. Unless the person is going to end up needing a wheelchair soon, this door will seem way out of scale for a bathroom and force you to build a bigger room than you need. I almost always use 28" wide doors to bathrooms.




I don't think it's the end of the world if the cabinet door and the door opening have a collision point, though I agree with the toilet one:




There ya go, my 2¢ for what it's worth
