What Size are Return Ducts Usually


So Do I fill this hole in??? or at-least one side, or should I try and get a "Real Duct" installed and possible convert everything

I just don't know???

My new sub floor needs to be installed and have this hole there, and need to know do i close it up.

If I don't close it up,Can I drywall right to the floor as this hole and no drywall was hidden with the old vanity.

Drywall over it.
And cut another hole in the opposite wall, and put a return grille on it. So you don't loose any return.

That's the thing,the wall right behind it is the Hallway and It has a Grill

That's why I was asking if I should cover up the hole in the floor/drywall the wall,but now with all this info I've found out about my Heating system I have now I'm .

Or do I just drywall and leave the hole as it's apart of my Heating system it seems.

Don't know if loosing one hole will be a problem

You don't want a return in a bathroom.

Loosing one return can be a problem that bites you hard down the road.

Doesn't matter if there is already a return in the hallway. Another one won't hurt your hallway.
