Until further NEC communism, most bathrooms out here abut the kitchen with the wetwall. I often tie the kitchen and bathroom lights on the same circuit to avoid the evil AFCI mythbreaker.

I bid cheap and work cheap for maximum profit. Honestly I constantly compete against another EC that runs a 12/3 to each bathroom with circuit to the outlet and the other to the lights. I beat him every time, besides I hate running into 40 circuit panels jammed full of 20 amp breakers feeding 3 amps worth of loads. Minimum code has awarded me many bids and has made me a lot of money.

Plus all the service calls when there's two females in different bathrooms using flat irons and blow dryers on the same circuit and its tripping. And the old "none of my bathroom receptacles are working and I checked the breakers? Huh, what's a gfi?" I separate all bedroom bath gfi's, powder rooms is all I'll piggy back.

I have yet to get one of those calls. The only calls I ever got were over AFCIs tripping when using the blowdryer in the bedroom. Simple removal solved that problem.

I suppose two ladies blow drying at the same time can blow a breaker. I do often hit the master bedroom GFCI on it's own ckt on the higher end jobs.
