Outlet height placement question
I'm in the middle of a bathroom renovation (1973 home), and I'm not thrilled with the fact that the light switch and outlet are at different heights. The light switch was previously at the same level as the switch, but the electrician moved it so the bottom of it is 48" from the floor.
I asked the GC about the outlet height, and he said it's like that because of the code. Even if it is the code, I thinking of having him get the electrician to move it regardless. The side of the vanity will be about 9" away from that wall, so I don't see how that would have anything to do with the outlet.
Do you see anything unusual about the outlet placement, or any reason why it can't physically be moved? If I'm going to have a change I need to do it before the painting starts, and the permanent switches and outlet are installed.
