Bathroom door size
 
We originally planned on a 32" bathroom door but now decided to use a wider trim and with the 32" door the trim won't fit. I am thinking of using a 28" door so we can accommodate the wider trim.

I could possibly widen the opening but it would be way easier to just use a smaller door.

So what are your thoughts about a 28" door in a bathroom? Also there is a 32" bedroom door right next to this one so would that look odd?

28" is plenty for a washroom.
I must be cheap or something. I'm going to use 30" doors for the bedrooms.:whistling2:

Do you have a crystal ball and know that no one in your house hold may at one point not need a walker or a wheel chair?
I've seen cases where the home owner had to move out because of narrow main entrances and bathroom door ways. Something to think about.

Interesting point Joe.
I do know in my case if that happens, I will be moving.

I used to live with a care giver.
Shame when you see someone that's live in the own home there who life that's been paid for long ago have to move out and loose everything and are now faced with someone having to come up the money to pay for it.

Thanks I just used 32" because that's what's in the rest of the house. Do you think it will look odd next to the larger door?

That is something to think about but this is on the second floor already and it's the 2nd full bath the other one is on the first floor. But yeah if something like that happened we would have to replace a lot of doors.

Usually the doors are open so it may not be as noticeable as you might think.

Different rooms, different door sizes, may be more common than you may think.

You are right I was at the inlaws tonight and measured their bathroom door and it was a 28" and the bedroom doors were 32" and I never really noticed or thought it about.

So I think I will just order a 28" door.
