What is the code minimum ceiling height in a laundry room?
Sunday, March 1, 2020
Laundry rooms must have a minimum ceiling height of 6 feet 8 inches. Where the ceiling is sloped, such as under a stairs, there are exemptions and two other parameters you have to work within, based on the Residential Edition of the Florida Building Code (FBC R305) and the International Residential Code (IRC):
1) For a room with a sloped ceiling, at least half of the ceiling must be a minimum of 7 feet or higher, with no part of the required floor area lower than 5 feet.
2) Beams, girders, ducts, or other obstructions can project to within 6 foot 4 inches of the floor.
