Hi all.I'am new to this forum. My Question is.I'am moving the bathroom sink over closer to the door to the bathroom to make room for a new shower stall. I would like to know. How close can i put THIS SINK next to the door by code. Can I butt the sink up to the casing on the door or not. I need all the space to fit the new shower on the same wall as the bathroom door.There is NO PLACE else I could put the shower, with out changing the floor plan of the bathroom.And I don't want to do that at all. I need all the move I could get by moving this sink closer to this door. Can anybody help. THANK YOU ALL.

Unless your restricted by barrier free design do to ADA requirements then moving it closer to a door should be no problem.

Now from a plumbing stand point I try never to exceed the following

The trap of the fixture should not be more then 2 feet from the vent serving this fixture and the fixture should not be more then 2 ft from the trap so in other words you have 4 ft to play with.

Each code has its own variations and the local code is what should govern your decision.

Good luck
