I am remodeling my bathroom and have run into a problem. My bathroom light fixture is a fixture with 4 sockets for light bulbs and a plug outlet. It is a rectangle shaped fixture (chrome) with a long glass rectangle shade. My problem is that I cannot seem to find a new light fixture with an outlet on it which I need, as my bathroom does not have any outlet other than this.

There must be a way to get around this problem.

Please help

You will not find a new fixture with an outlet. Bathroom outlets need to be gfci protected. If the wiring in the switch is more than just 2 wires you might be able to install a switch combo unit with a receptacle. If there is only 2 wires that are both attached to the switch you can not use the switch combo.
