The Master Bath

Master Bath

Minimum required:


  • One GFCI protected outlet within 3' of the sink.
    • This means two sinks, two outlets! They must be adjacent to the sink, they can be on a side wall next to the sink (but not across the room).


  • One wall switch controlled light.
    • Your choice of light and switch location.
  • Exhaust fan.
    • There may be a minimum size required, check with your local inspector.

In my example:

  • Vanity Lights
    • I'm installing a light over each sink.

Common Options

  • More outlets.
    • Add as many as you'd like, just be sure they're all GFCI protected, and don't put them over the tub.
  • More lights.
    • It's up to you.
  • Light over tub/shower.
    • It's up to you. No pendants over the tub or shower, but you can use a recessed can light (with a listed shower trim if over the shower).
