Recessed light wiring help
 
I am trying to add 2 recessed lights in our bathroom. my issue is I have no room left in the original switch box on the wall to accomodate the wiring come from the recessed lights. what are my options. I currently have one switch for the normal light, one switch for the exhaust fan and one GFCI outlet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So right now you have three devices in a three gang box? You want to add one more switch for the recessed lights? You could use a combination device with two single pole switches and put the light and fan that you have on that. This would free up a space for another single pole switch. They also make combination three single pole switches on one combination device. This all depends on if you have enough expansion room with regard to box fill.

U could change tha 3gang to a 4ganger n thatll give u room 4 another switch 4 yer 2 recessed. Or if no room 4 tha bigger box, u could run a switch leg off of tha fan n thatll give u tha leg 4 yer hihats. So many possibilities
