Is 1.4 x 1.4m big enough for a powder room? We only need to fit a toilet and basin (it can just be a wall hung basin instead of cabinet). Currently we have this on our plans with a 720mm door. Could we fit a 820mm door? Thanks
1.4 x 1.4 is pretty pokey , and no , I suspect an 820 door will be too wide unless you swing it outwards , which is just weird .
If it swings inwards , even if it at 90 degrees to the toilet itself , there will be almost no room for a person , a WC and the door 'swing' . Most doors are at the end of the room , the WC at the other end , and that will make it even worse -- if the WC protrudes 50cm from the wall , and your door is 820 , you have 8cm in which to stand ! Setting the WC 'offcentre , the door off-centre the other way gives a bit more space , but add a basin and you have an obstacle course to negotiate .
Is there any way you can take the length to around 1.8-2 metres ? A width of 1.2 works , 1.4 might sound better , but with only 1.4 of length you are pretty much stuffed .
you need to allow at least 80cm x 80cm square for toilet with knees and elbow room so after using that space there's not enough room to open a door and comfortably squeeze out but post your plans including dimensions to invite suggestion
