When installing a door in the bathroom, consider the threshold. In such rooms there is almost always a high threshold. In case of flooding the room, it will not allow water to spread through the rest of the premises. The doors to the bathroom are set up because of him 10 cm taller than usual. The standard size of 2 m does not fit here. If the wrong height door is chosen, it is difficult to align it with the doorway.

It is recommended to make a gap for ventilation between the threshold and the door about 10 cm. It should be borne in mind that the door handles should be slightly lower. The walls in such rooms are thinner than the others, it is necessary to ensure that the thickness of the box does not exceed the wall thickness by more than 1.5 cm. If the box is thicker and you try to fit it, the saws will be visible. If, on the contrary, the wall is thicker than the box, then this is better, then the box is installed in the middle of the wall width, and the slopes are beautifully cladded.
If the room is repaired, then the door to the bathroom is installed in the last turn, but the door frame must be installed before the completion of the walls, floor, ceiling.
