kitchen outlet/switch same box

hoozdissJanuary 12, 2010

re-wiring kitchen was wondering if 3gang box receptacle(12/2 from circuit) and 2 3way switches(14/3 and 14/2) can be in same box as long as everything is GFCI. Thanks

The lighting circuit is not required to be GFCI protected.
More importantly, the 14 ga wired lighting must be on a 15 amp circuit, not the 20 amp circuit that the receptacle is probably on.

No problem putting them in the same box.
Tie all the grounds together.
Keep the neutrals from the two circuits separate.
