New Mezuzah

Question:

Our boiler room / laundry room had a toilet (no shower) in it. We have not used the toilet in years and finally had a plumber remove it and close up the hole. Does the room now require a mezuzah? We removed the door to the room years ago as well, but the door frame remains. If yes, is a Bracha required to be made as well?

 

Answer:

When the toilet was removed, and the hole closed up, that essentially made the room become like any other room, and it would require a mezuza. Therefore if the room is large enough to need a mezuza then a mezuza should be placed on the doorpost with a bracha.

Best wishes
