Thread: How much of a cut-out do you need to get under Bathroom Sink?

    How much of a cut-out do you need to get under Bathroom Sink?

    I just purchased a vacation home in Florida. I will also be using it as a short term rental so i am making it as wheelchair accessible as practical/ possible. I plan to cut out part of the vanity cabinet to make it a roll under sink.

    I personally need about 26" to roll under with my manual chair. I know ADA calls for more than that but anything over 28"H X 28" W. opening will be very difficult with this cabinet. Is that enough? what about power chair users what height can you roll under? Any input is welcome.

    While that is the ADA standard, a lot of power chairs will not fit under the counter if it is only 29". Note that this is a MINIMUM.

    My bath sink under counter height is 29. Knees fit under with almost 2in of clearance. The armrest and joystick would need 32 inches cutout.
