The Master Bedroom

Master Bedroom

Minimum required:


  • Wall outlets.
    • Any wall 24" or longer requires an outlet. Within 6' of the start of a wall (at a doorway or the beginning of the wall, and the non-sliding portion of the sliding glass door and the entire window counts as wall space), then not more than 12' between them.


  • One wall switch controlled light or outlet.
    • Your choice of light and switch location.
  • Smoke detector.
    • Remember, you need a smoke detector in every bedroom, as well as on each floor of the house, close to the bedrooms.

In my example:

  • If you have an outside door:
    • You need a switch controlled light outside the door. Switch and light must both be close to the door.
  • Paddle fan/light
    • Make sure you use the proper box. I am switching the light from both doors.

Common Options

  • More outlets.
    • Add as many as you'd like.
  • More lights.
    • It's up to you.
  • Switch the lights from both doors, or by the bed.
    • Add an extra switch by the sliding door or bed so you can turn your lights on or off from there also.
