Building basement bathroom


Hi Guys, I am building a bathroom in my basement, toilet, sink and shower. Don't want it to take too much space in the basement, since the basement isn't that big. My question is what is the ideal space min required on front of the toilet? This is where my wall will be, Thanks. P.S Don't want to cramped as well, lol.

Not sure, but I'd suspect a 24" clearance would be adaquate.

According to the 2006 IRC section r307.1 says 21" clearance in front of the toilet.

Remember that is 21" from the end of the bowl, not from the rough in flange. And 21" is'nt very comfy.
