    Replacing a bathroom vanity light
    I am replacing a bathroom vanity light and would like the replacement to also have an electrical outlet since there is none in this 1960ish bathroom.
    Do they make these anymore?
    If not, in what other way could I get both a light and an electrical outlet in the bathroom?

    Here are a couple of fixtures that have the outlet built-in.

    I did a web search for "bath light fixtures with power outlet"

    However, I believe there is a restriciton that will be imposed in the future that will not allow these to be available, due to lack of GFI protection, and the difficulty of forcing homeowners to install GFI circuit breakers.
