Toilet clearance

Posted by karle13 (My Page) on

Working on the 8 by 6 bathroom, and we are putting the toilet next to a round shower enclosure! Is there a certain clearance between the shower, toilet and wall? The toilet needs to go on the 6 foot wall next to the shower and wall! The sink needs to be on the other 6 foot wall as the door is in the center of the other 8 foot wall!

RE: Toilet clearance

I believe ideally a toilet should have 18" on either side of the centerline, so 36" obstacle to obstacle. I will post a link that shows all sorts of recommended distances for bathroom fixtures. On this link it stated minimum recommended is 18", minimum code is 15".

Here is a link that might be useful: Illustrated rules of good bathroom design

RE: Toilet clearance

My understanding was 15" from the center of the toilet - I have 18" and really in a small space I think 15" is fine.
