For wide doors in a limited space it is common to double up doors using two doors which open in opposite directions, or an increasingly popular option are pivot doors, which offer the grand feel of a wider than average door while maintaining space savings and usability.

What is the standard width of a bathroom door?

The most common size for a bathroom door is 32″. Your sliding door, such as a sliding barn door, should be taller than the door opening (allowing for sliding door hanging hardware) and wider as well (usually 1 to 2 inches on either side). Although, in tight spaces bathroom door openings can be as little as 28″ or 24″ inches wide. For spaces that require wheel chair access, doors should be at least 36″ wide to accommodate all ability levels.

When building a bathroom door, be sure that you have considered every eventuality. Particular to bathrooms are concerns about moisture and sound penetration. SingCore panels are particularly suited to harsh environments. We guarantee the structure of our panels for 50-years, which means you are able to count on your bathroom door functioning flawlessly for years to come.

Further, we offer patented foam and wood cores that significantly reduce noise propagation compared to commonly found door designs. Keep your private time private with SingCore.

Standard sliding door height

Since most door openings are 80″ tall in the United States, 84″ is the recommended height of your sliding door, or barn door.

For a unique or above average look, SingCore recommends 95.5″ tall door openings for installation in a typical residential home, and taller for multimillion dollar homes or commercial spaces with high ceilings. Noe these will require a custom sliding door solution.
