bathroom light switch located too close to shower
Planning to Renovate my bathroom:
According to what research I've done, there cannot be an electrical switch within "X" amount of inches from a tub or shower. (I think it is sixty something inches, can't recall exactly). However, my problem is that the current location of the switch box as you enter the bathroom is around 24" from the shower stall. It's right along the edge of the bathroom entry door so it cannot be moved over any further.
Moving it would require installing a new door that would open opposite and also moving the switch to a new location on another wall. This would cause the door to open into and hit the base of the shower stall and would be create a somewhat awkward entry into the room. (The bathroom is on the second floor so moving the shower would require me to also move the toilet etc... which would lead to re-plumbing the entire bathroom among other things and is out of the question.)
Are there any exceptions or conditions where a light switch can be in close proximity to the tub or shower? What are my options?
