Bathroom light switch

Am I the only one that walks into the bathroom in the dark and tries to turn on the switch beside the door only to find that somebody moved it to next to the sink?

Same here. Love my Sunnybrook. Hate the bath light switch location.

Our bathroom light switch is 2-3' inside the bathroom to the right, behind the towel rack down low. Terrible location. I added a second switch on the bedroom side of the bath as you walk in. Convenient.

I had one motorhome where the bedroom light switches were on the opposite side from the doorway, a truly idiotic arrangement. When I complained, the manufacturer said "we couldn't put it by the door - the wall isn't thick enough!" DUH! When you design the interior, you are supposed to make sure the switch can be placed within reach of the door! If that means designing a little different, that's what you do! I mean, would they say, "we couldn't put a bed in the bedroom because after we built it, we found the room wasn't big enough"? Just piss-poor engineering and no excuses.

Our bathroom light switch was mounted lower than the other switches; the water pump switch was mounted at light switch height. We were always hitting the wrong one. I reversed their locations and replaced the light switch with a dimmer unit (those 4 bulbs were awfully bright in the morning...).

We had the same issue, but then DW put one of those luminescent night lights in the outlet by the sink... it lights up the whole bathroom well enough that we don't usually have to turn on a light in the middle of the night.

Everything using power now has a LED. There is plenty of night light. Except in the bathroom. Next fix.

The switch in ours is perfect,, just to the right of the door frame.

There is one thing that i'm annoyed at though,, the exhaust fan switch. I have to stand up and push the little button at the vent. Sure would be nice to be able to hit a switch while sitting.

Swap the switch out with a pull chain switch. I had to do that for the DW to even reach it.
