Electrical Wiring for a Laundry Room

Installing Laundry Room Electrical Wiring for Dedicated Circuits and Outlet Requirements

Laundry Room Dedicated Circuit Wiring and Outlet Requirements

Question: I need to wire up a utility laundry room with one wall all counter top and sink.

  1. The washer and dryer on the other wall.
  2. I know basic codes about sinks and wet bars and GFI outlets.
  3. Does the counter top have to have outlets every 4 feet?
  4. Also does this room need outlet receptacles every 12 feet?

Thank you.

Electrical projects including laundry room electrical wiring should be installed using high quality copper wire conductor and good quality MCB Circuit Protection to prevent from over voltage conditions.
