Maybe it's hard for you to get in and out of a 20" door, but for most people almost two feet is plenty.
This is a public forum & you asked for advice
If you don't like that advice you are free to not follow it
But don't pull an attitude & tell people to mind their own business
That's not what this site is about
I had one 24" door at my last house & redid the doorway to fit a 30" door
Usually a 32" door is the min I will put in
All of my doors leading outside are 36"
Any major door (or opening) leading to another area is also 36" Min
You shouldn't have to turn sideways to walk thru a door

Sultini, I wrote my post to you after having a string of bad calls with electricians and I guess I took it out on you - sorry dude, totally uncalled for. I appreciate everybody's help and advice.

I'm not going to change the door size - can't really the way the bathroom is designed.
