Currently I have a room that has a 15 circuit with only 2 outlets on it. I'm making it into a bathroom/dressing room. What circuits do I require for 2 outlets near a vanity, 2 other outlets, vanity lighting, shower fan, and 4 recessed lights. The GFI's will be used for hair dryer, iron, etc. Would I need a 20 amp circuit for the 2 GFI outlets and a 15 amp for everything else? Thanks for ny input.

You need at least one 20 amp circuit to serve the bahtroom receptacles.

If there are no other bathroom connected to it you can also use it for the lights and fan.

But since you already a 15 amp circuit, have a number of lights, and both iron and hair dryer it would be a good idea to use the 15 amp circuit for the fan and lights.

And a new 20 amp circuit for the receptacles.
