The lead article in this series is titled Bathroom Ideas.
For most cities in and near Sunnyvale, the following are electrical requirements of any bathroom remodel:
- the entire bathroom must be on one dedicated circuit that includes both outlets and lighting (only bathrooms allow this)
- outlets must be GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupt)
- you must (and some people hate this) install a motion sensor for the light
Because your bathroom is the wettest room in your home, the rules for electrical are stricter than they are for the other rooms in the house.
This is a good thing, a very good thing.
Even if you are a die hard DIY’er, unless you know the rules for electrical inside out, hire a professional.
You and your family can not afford for it not to be done right.
