How to Wire a Bathroom Light Switch
Electrical Question: Where do all the wires connect to the light switch?
I’m replacing a light fixture in a bathroom.
- The bathroom also includes an exhaust fan, no light, two separate switches for light and exhaust fan.
- The connections from light to box are black to red wire, white to white wire, ground to green wire.
- There are also two cream wires coming out of box that I assume are for the fan.
- Do they connect to the hot wires red/black or to each other to complete the circuit?

- Trudy the cream color wires should be verified, however each function for a light or exhaust fan will require a hot, neutral and ground wire to be connected to a voltage source and through the wall switch.
- Once the power source has been verified then the connections should be clear.
