I know I'm the first to direct people to the regs but I'm having trouble finding the information I need in them and I know that many here know everything there is to know about electrical installs.
I have a large "bathroom" except that it has no bath only a fully enclosed shower, a bidet, a toilet and a sink. These are arranged along two sides of the room and I am building a cupboard in the opposite corner on which I would like to mount a power socket and a thermostat for the heating. Primarily the power socket is intended to be used for a hairdryer, hair clippers and a vacuum cleaner.
I need to know what's permissible, what's safe and what's sensible (of course they *may* overlap!) but a can't find much in the regs which makes sense. From one reading it would appear that power sockets are not allowed at all - no matter what size the room - which would be a bit non-sensical. But in other places the regs talk of shortening the power cords on appliances likely to be plugged into a socket in such cases so that they cannot reach the sink/bath - like that's going to happen! Anyway I recall hairdressers all have sockets mounted right next to the sinks so they must be allowed in some cases as businesses such as these tend to have the regs imposed quite strictly.
In my case the power socket would be about 1.2m from the sink, on the opposite wall and about 1.7m from the glass door of the shower enclosure, also on the opposite wall, and much further still from the bidet and toilet.
