No Power To Bathroom

Installed a new switch in the Living Room for Lights. So turned off the power at the main panel. Turned off by mistake the breaker for the bathroom up stairs. Turned them all back on after I changed the switch. Swith works fine but no power to the the master bathroom. Two lights and two outlets have no power, So I reset the breaker again still no power. What could have happened. Everthing in the house works except them.

Several things could have happened.

The bathroom could be on a GFCI circuit. it should be if the house is new enough. Is either circuit breaker a GFI( breaker? Is there a GFCI outlet in the bathroom that needs to be reset? Is there a GFCI outlet in any bathroom or anywhere in the house that needs to be reset?

Is the bathroom on the same breaker as the switch you replaced, or on a different breaker, or are you not sure? When you replaced the switch did you connect all wires exactly as they were on the previous switch? How many wires were in the box with the switch? How were they and how are they now connected to the switch?

This will be a little redundant with racrafts reply. Since two breakers were turned off one for the switch circuit and one for the bathroom, that now has no power, and this was by mistake then probably GFCI or breaker didnt reset. So go to breaker and push breaker to the off position very firmly then on, if still no power look in all bathrooms and elsewhere for your GFCI outlets push the reset button (usually red) when you find one that is tripped or if hard to tell just push reset on all you find. GFCI may not be in bathroom without power but in another location. Probably is in another bathroom with outlets with no power protected by it....RL
