I'm planning wiring for a bathroom renovation. I'll have two circuits, a 20A and a 15A, bringing power to a switch box at the door, with a table just below for charging. The 20A circuit will power a GFI outlet there (alongside the switches) and from its load side also other outlets in the bathroom. The 15A circuit will power lights and the exhaust fan.
I'd like to ALSO provide an outlet, at the switch location, from the 15A circuit. Since it's there, it's not next to a sink or otherwise wet, and the table will be used primarily for charging. It would be great to keep the 20A outlet free by keeping chargers plugged into the 15A one.
Is this allowed?
Emphasis: To be clear, all outlets will be GFCI protected. Each outlet in the switch boxes (the one on the 15A circuit and the one on the 20A circuit) will be a GFCI outlet. The one on the 20A circuit will also feed, through its load side, other outlets in the same room.
Yes I could make BOTH circuits 20A. Yes it would be "better" to bring a third circuit so ALL the outlets can be 20A. But that's not the question. I want to use a 15A circuit for the lights because there are a lot of them and the #14 cable is cheaper and more importantly easier to work with, especially overhead. So the 15A circuit will exist, and its presence at a location that is designed for low power equipment is perfect ... I just want to know if it is disallowed or highly inadvisable.
