Vanity Drawer Outlet Benefits
Power outlets for your vanity drawers makes it easy to keep your bathroom better organized and cut down on clutter. There are various designs to fit the styles and sizes of virtually any vanity. When you install power outlets in your vanity drawers or bathroom cabinetry it makes it so everything is put away, but still ready for use!
The Right Power Where You Need It
You can choose between USB or 120 Volt outlets for your vanity drawers. This gives you flexibility to provide power for a variety of electric devices. Your tablet and smartphone can charge overnight via USB outlets. The higher voltage bathroom electric devices like curling irons and hair dryers can plug into one of our UL listed 120 volt grounded outlets.
Ease Of Organization
There is a good chance that you store many items that need power to work in drawers, but have to remove them and plug them in to use or charge. This means cords wrapping around each other and getting into a tangled mess. Why not simply have an outlet inside the drawer, saving yourself time and effort?
Dedicated Hair Dryer Outlet
If you have a hair dryer drawer with a power outlet it means having a dedicated outlet just for your use. You won’t be fighting for power with other electric beauty tools or electric shavers. Instead of having to unplug other devices, coil up the cords, and put them away before using your hair dryer, it’s just ready to use. This makes mornings more pleasant and simple.
In-Drawer Power Outlet Installation
There are two types of systems you can use for power options for drawers, 120 volt outlets for hair dryers and other personal hygiene or beauty appliances or USB drawer outlet stations.
120 Volt Power Outlet Installation
For bathroom appliances such as hair dryers, curling irons, or electric shavers you will need to get an outlet that has a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) and allows for 3 prong cords.
The installation of this product involves wiring into your home’s power and should be done by a licensed electrician. This is a simple concept, and it was pointed out by Remodeling Magazine that allows you to plug in a blow dryer while storing it in the bathroom drawer, convenience at its best!
USB Power Outlet Installation
The overall process for installation is similar to creating a charging station. Essentially, you could simply wire a power strip which fits inside the drawer with a hole in the back, then plugging into an outlet somewhere. Additionally, we think it’s a great concept for gadgets that need charging between uses, especially if it’s ones you don’t want displayed on a shelf. No matter what you choose to plug in, it is nicely concealed while being connected to a power source, you are likely to find several advantages. We get questions like the following all the time.
“I would like put an electrical outlet in the back of a bathroom vanity drawer so that my wife can keep her hairdryer plugged into the outlet and then just have to open the drawer and pull out the hairdryer, ready-to-go. Does anyone have any design ideas for such a idea? Do you know of a manufacturer/supplier that makes such a plug. I’m trying to figure out what type of cord/wiring I would need from the outlet in the back of the drawer to a fixed outlet in the wall. I don’t think I can use romeck because it is not made to be moved and flexed that repeated drawer opening would cause. I don’t know if there is a special type of wire or maybe a curled pigs tail type wire that could be used to withstand the flexing and not get tangled up in the drawer extension hardware. Thanks for any useful insight/suggestions.” Hair Dryer Outlet In Vanity Drawer?
