The door may be defined as a framework of wood, steel, aluminum, glass, or a combination of these materials secured in an opening left in a wall for the aim of giving access to the uses of the structures. The door height used in the building should be between 80″ to 96″.


  1. Standard Door Height  

The door height varies from country to country and the height of people living in a building. The minimum height of the standard door height should be 80 inches.

Doors are mainly placed at the entrance way of the home, Bed Room, Drawing Room, Toilet, Garage, etc. The doors are prepared as per the requirement of the owner. There is the standard door size for some fixed parts in the home such as the main door, bathroom, garage, etc.

The main use of the door is to provide entrance inside or outside of any room and many doors are fixed with hinges, slide in grooves, or revolve on an axis.


  2. Standard Size of Door Frame 

The standard door size is 6′ 8″ which does not contain the size of the door frame. The door frame size is wider than the door opening. The door frame post contains a width of around 2 to 4 inches.


The total width of the door frame = Width of door frame + width of door + width of the door frame

= 2″ + 36″ + 2″

Width of door frame = 40″


height of door frame = height of door + width of the door frame

= 6′ 8″ + 2″

Height of door frame = 6′ 10″

Therefore, the size of the door frame is 82″x 40″
