How much space should I leave between door's casing and a wall corner?

5 years ago

Is there a standard distance off wall that you use for interior doors so that the gap between the casing and the wall isn't too small for finish work? Does this matter?

I'd like to keep my doors close the the wall joint to omit unnecessary framing members, but is it weird to have a standard (3.25) casing almost touching the opposing wall?

TIA for thoughts!
