Dimmer to control lamp in bathrooms?

Posted by janesylvia (My Page) on

I'll have the exhaust fans replaced with Panasonic models. I'd like to have the 2-gang wallplate changed to a 3-gang one ---one GFCI outlet, one timer switch to control exhaust fan, and one switch to control lamps above vanity. For the lamp switch. I don't know if it would be better to have an ordinary switch or a dimmer switch.

Any input or sharing of experience is greatly appreciated.

RE: Dimmer to control lamp in bathrooms?

I would absolutely go with a dimmer. Every one of the many light switches in my master bath are on a dimmer and I really, really like being able to adjust the lights to suit my mood and daylight conditions. Now that I think about it, virtually every light in my house is dimmable!

RE: Dimmer to control lamp in bathrooms?

Treasuretheday, thank you very much. May I ask which specific model of dimmer you have at home? I know lamp will not give its original brightness when the Nutron dimmer is turned to max, but should not differ by much. Are you satisfied with your dimmers?

Really appreciate your help.
