I'm in the process of remodeling my bathroom and will be putting a counter top high electrical outlet in a corner as linen storage. I plan to draw power to this new outlet from an outlet on the opposite side of the wall (bedroom). Here is my question. I am looking to install this 13" ceiling fan in my bathroom sort of tucked in the corner of the room just above the outlet I'll install on the wall.
Can I just wire a Romex directly from the new outlet and run it up into the ceiling? Or do have (or is it preferred) to use a double junction box and create a switch to power this fan. Meaning, the new outlet will be paired with a on/off switch and my electrical outlet.
The fan is operated from a handheld remote so I don't think adding a switch will create any benefit like turning it on and off. But if it's required by code then, of course, I'll connect it to a switch.
