Again, there may be a fan/light combo in the center of the room, some with a built-in nightlight. This is a nice aaded feature and saves a lot of people's toes in the middle of the night.
Install at least one ceiling-mounted light fixture to allow ample lighting. This may be in addition to wall sconces or strip lighting in the bathroom. Place exhaust fans or heater-fan-light combinations far enough from the bathtub, shower, or hot tub so that no one can stand in water and touch it. I'd like to see the fan located somewhere over the toilet area.
Be sure that the vent flapper is installed properly to close when the fan is not in use. This keeps the cold air from the outside from filtering back into the bathroom. In fact, the flexible hose should be insulated with insulation to keep condensation from building up from the difference of temperature between the inside and outside air temperatures.
Bathrooms are damp and can use a lot of power. This creates special needs when it comes to wiring. This article will help you plan for appropriate electrical wiring to cover lighting, airflow, and safety devices in your bathroom. Everything from watertight lighting fixtures in bathing areas to effective ventilation to GFCI outlets for safety must be considered.
