Minimum Height for receptacle

I am adding an outlet next to a toilet. Putting it at the same height as the other outlets in the house will make this outlet more conspicuous than I'd like it to be (it is solely for a bidet). As I understand it, there is nothing in the code that prohibits this. Is that correct? The outlet would preferably be about 8 inches off the ground.

There is no restriction on receptacle height. They can be in the floor, the ceiling or anyplace in between.

Bidet outlets are typically low and inconspicuous. Make certain it meets code requirements, generally GFCI protected 3 prong grounded outlets of at least 15 amps
