"The main electrical spur for the boiler must be located outside of the bathroom completely, and the boiler should ideally be contained in a cupboard"

"A combination boiler would most be suited for a bathroom also a cupboard fitted around to protect from water splashes ideally have the electrical spur located outside the bathroom"

When siting a boiler in a bathroom there are some important regulations to observe, though. The position must allow for the boiler flue to exit the building and terminate safely and the location must provide adequate space for servicing the boiler It is also important that there is enough air circulation around the boiler when placing the boiler in a cupboard. All these dimensions will be listed in the manufacturer’s installation instructions and can vary from boiler to boiler.
Hope this helps."

"Yes, the bathroom is divided into specific zones. Some are permitted as long as preventative measures are installed with the boiler."
