How many switches?
I am remodeling a full bathroom with sconces, overhead lights, and a fan. How many switches would you prefer, and why? We are in California, so Title 24 applies (fans and lights must be separately controllable). Our options are:
Option A: 1 dimmer switch for all the lights, 1 timer switch for the fan.
Option B: 1 dimmer switch for sconces, 1 dimmer switch for overhead lights, 1 timer switch for fan.
Option C: 1 dimmer switch for sconces, 1 dual switch with half dimmer switch for overhead lights + half timer switch for fan.
Option A would be simplest, and I like simple, but our designer says most folks like to control overhead lights vs sconces separately. Am I missing something? Are there times you want to use overhead or sconce but not both?
