Bathroom Remodel: Day 22

Filed under: Mini Bath — maryparadox @ 11:06 pm

The electrician came and install the switches and lights. Since we hadn’t picked out any light fixtures yet they just installed cheap basic sockets and we’ll have to install the lights later (the punishment for slacking).


Such a complicated panel!

Apparently code now dictates that you have a motion sensor on your bathroom light that will automatically turn it off after a motionless 5-15 minutes (it’s configurable). So the bottom right thingy is the light sensor and the on off switch. The two top switches dictate what will go on when you hit the sensor (this way you can have a sort of pre-set program to dictate what goes on). There is a switch for the light over the mirror, which will have make-up globes, and one for the chandelier. To complicate things further they each have dimmers. The last switch on the bottom left is for the fan. It was supposed to be on a timer so you could leave it running and walk away, but they forgot.


I don't know why, but I really like this sideways.
