    Default Re: 2'-6" wide Toilet room

    I have a toilet room in my house that is 2'-7" X 5'-0", I have no problems with comfort or cleaning. I am a big guy 6'1" and I fit without any problems.

    To pick a nit, the codes don't specify a mimimum of 2'6" (30") width. They typically specify that a wall adjacent to the water closet (toilet) be a minimum of 15" from the center line of the water closet.

    So yeah, effectively it's 2'6" minimum overall. But that's not the way the code says it.

    So if your space is 2'6", you're going to have to get the toilet perfectly centered in order to comply with code.

I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.

    thanks for all the great replies. Being short and small, I forget how a big tall person might feel in a small space.

    In that case, a 2'-6" wide bathroom won't be a problem...

    Fact is that most people have no serious problem on an airplane bathroom. They may complain, but only because complaining is their habit.

    To use a 2'-6" wide bathroom all you have to do is just back it in.
