Wiring Bathroom switches
Description of Photo: This is a basement bathroom. The pic is of an electrical wall box that has room for two switches. I believe one switch is for a light above the vanity, and the other for a ceiling light with fan. This is a guess because there is no junction box above the vanity and there is no ductwork to vent the fan. There is a white wire (with a black, white, and ground) that runs to the ceiling for a ceiling junction box, which I will need to install.
I installed a GFCI Outlet and it works fine. I am a little worried about cutting a hole above the vanity and not finding a wire. I am not sure what to expect. I just want to get some light in the bathroom, so we can use the sink and toilet.
There are three black wires and a red wire. Do I use two single pole switches? Why is there a red wire since it will not function as a three way switch?
The bathroom was framed with drywall and stub plumbing when we bought the house. There is do drop ceiling yet.
Thanks in advance for any guidance.
