I put a receptacle in one of my closets for a rechargable vacuum, cordless mixer, and a screwdriver. I've been thinkg that outting the recharging station for the rechargable batteries may be a good idea also.

I put a double duplex in the linen closet in our bath for shavers, toothbrush, etc. Keeps all the clutter off the sink. Also put a double duplex in the utility closet for dustbuster, etc.
Do you think the recep's in our bath linen closet should be on GFCI? They are, but I pose a Code question. Generally the interpretation has been the closet in a bedroom is not the bedroom and any outlets would not have to be AFCI. Would the same apply to a linen closet in a bathroom???

I too have installed receptacles inside the vanity (on GFI) and in the bedroom closets (on arcfault). I've warned my customer to unplug the hairdryer before stuffing it into the vanity...I can picture the switch being nudged on while putting it away and burning the house down. As to the GFI I figure it is in the bathroom. And the arcfault the same thought. You can't get into or out of the closet without being in the bedroom so I always put the closet plugs on arcfault.
