Looking to build a shower of any old size? Shower floor minimum size is usually mandated to be at least thirty (30) inches square; that is, 30" x 30".

Because shower doors are usually glass and can break (and because of other access issues), bathroom code says that shower doors need to have at least twenty-four (24) inches of opening clearance.

Both showers and bathtubs need anti-scald devices.
