I have a question about clearances for a bathroom I'm finishing in my basement. I'm going off the original roughed in bathroom plubming, except I've moved the drain originally positioned for a tub, and moved it for a shower install.
The problem I'm having is I think the toilet drain may now be too close to the shower and vanity it sits between. The clearance from the vanity to center of toilet drain is 14". The clearance from the shower side wall to the center of the toilet drain is 12". However the shower is a corner shower and angles out so the actual seating position of the toilet has more clearance, as well the vanity being used is not very deep.
Is the location of the toilet drain going to be a problem? Will a standard toilet fit in this space? Is there any code violations having it this close? I've included a diagram of the bathroom layout so you can see the plan and dimensions.
If need be I can move the shower to the other side of the bathroom, but I would prefer to have everything on one side so I can build shelving and storage on the other.
Sorry for the multiple posts, trying to link my image, but apparently this site doesnt like html or bb code.
Here is the straight link, if someone could delete my previous replies that would be great!
I think that it will work as long as you don't get too big of a toilet.
Thanks for replies guys. Seems that the toilet I've chosen should fit. The shower door can swing either way, I will have to measure to see if I can have it swing to the left and clear the toilet, which would be ideal.
I just finished a basement with the same issues, same distance from a shower. Yes it should work, did for me and yes be careful of which way the pivot door swings out. Use a smaller toilet, no fancy ones they tend to be bigger.
I suggest that you get your toilet and dry fit, if the shower base is already installed.
Mine all work perfectly, good luck; hope this helps.
