Minimum size door for bathroom?


Is there a minimum size door for a bathroom with one door in/out?
I would imagine there is, and anything 30" to 36" or beyond is OK?

Thanks guys!

Standard interior doors are 30". If you are planning on living there till death do you part, or maybe getting hit by a truck before then, if you can, use a 36". I believe wheel chairs can get through a 36" door OK. GL. j

Almost all of the interior doors in this house are 30"
I usually install 32" if there is room
2nd floor bedroom I put a 32" door in
Just easier to move stuff in & out

You guys are lucky. My basement door is 27"

I had to take the molding off to fit the dryer through.

My bathroom pocket door is 24". Actual clearance is 23 1/4". It's more than enough room... we aren't too fat.

We have a 24" door that goes to one bedroom's bath. It's a tiny one!

No minimum width, just height.
I did a quick check on the 24", a lot of local Building Departments use that even in attic, garage conversions and basement finishing. Check locally.

Be safe, Gary

My bathroom door is 24".

I'm not fat either but my shoulders can't fit thru, so I have to turn sideways a bit.
