to install medicine cabinets or not?
April 1, 2014 in Design Dilemma
with a new construction house and what appears as enough storage with under the sink cabinets and drawers in 4 bathrooms, is it necessary to have the typical mirror medicine cabinet in the wall? starting to wonder if it is more of an eyesore or necessary component in the bathroom.....thank you

Some medicine cabinets could be fitted between wall studs for a more flushed look. And more storage is always welcomed.

I love my medicine cabinets - the bigger the better! I have an antique one in one bath and two new ones in my other - a large one with a curved, beveled mirror over the sink and a full length one that was a big splurge. Both are by Kohler and have mirrors inside on the back of the door and behind the shelves. I've never for a moment considered medicine cabinets as eyesores in any of the houses I've toured. For me the drawers would not be a good substitute.

It depends on the look. I have one my master bathroom and I don't like it. It is fitted between the studs, but it's a low quality cabinet (whatever the builder installed). If you want one, I would look at some that have the mirrored door open and not slide. The groove for the sliding door is impossible to clean.
