    Default Louvered door on a bathroom off kitchen?

    OK - so, I ran into an issue today, and was wondering if - other then common sense and Rules of Human Decency - there is any code (in Florida) prohibiting a louvered door on a bathroom (directly off a kitchen).

    I wrote it up, but the Seller, will most likely say that it was that way when he bought the house and not change the application; so I wanted to see if there was any citation that I could reference to entice him to change the application.

    Thanks in advance for any guidance.

    Best regards - JD

    There is no rule against any type of door in this instance.in reality no,door is necessary.

    I may mention it to my client and I wouldn't want it in my own bathroom but it would not go in my report.

    You might mention it as a side note in that some people might not have taken much notice of it being louvered. Depending on age of house and door it can be an inexpensive alteration. Different strokes for different folks. But not a code issue that I have ever heard of.

    Growing up I used to see louvered doors on bathroom areas fairly regularly. It seemed the louvered door, carpet in the bathroom and a small chaise lounge all went together.
    I'd mention it as a potential post purchase cost item since some people may not want to leave it.

    Unless there was something wrong with the door, I probably wouldn't mention it.
    It would have been obvious to the buyer as they walked around the house, and easy enough to correct.
