You will need to establish the minimum requirements for space around your bathroom:  

  • Allow at least 600mm in front of the toilet and approximately 200mm either side of the bowl for elbowroom. 700mm should be allowed between the front of the basin and the nearest wall or object. 
  • Power points should be located at least 500mm from splash zones. 
  • Shower recesses should be at least 900 x 900mm square, however this is a minimum and more space is recommended if available.   

The average bath is approximately 1700mm long, 800mm wide and 400m deep.

    We are concerned the size of our shower in our bathroom ( which has just been tiled) is 760mm depth and 860mm wide. This is due to a large nib wall at the back which encroaches into the shower. We have brought this issue up with our builder but wondering if it’s acceptable and meets minimum standards?
