Our Guide to Choosing the Right Medicine Cabinets for Your Bathroom

A bathroom’s medicine cabinet plays an important role in one’s daily routines; If you are looking for a new medicine cabinet, be sure to make the right choices that fit your bathroom and lifestyle. Our guide offers several key aspects to keep in mind as you search for a medicine cabinet that fits your space.

Start with Size and Shape

How large is your bathroom and where will the medicine cabinet go? Is storage space a concern? What type of items need to be stored? Medicine cabinets and mirrors come in a variety of sizes and shapes to match the scale of your styling space and your overall bathroom. Ensure the proper fit for your medicine cabinet by measuring the area accurately.

Begin by measuring the width of your vanity. Your medicine cabinet should typically be narrower or the same width as the vanity. To determine the height, measure the distance between your lights and faucet. Will you be able to cut into your bathroom wall to install a medicine cabinet? Or do you need a medicine cabinet that can be mounted on the surface of the wall without affecting its structure? Consider the configuration of the interior of the medicine cabinet and if it will hold what you need. What is the lighting like in your bathroom and around your styling space?

Select Your Style

Along with helping you look your best, medicine cabinets can introduce a bold design statement or subtly complement the lines and details of your architecture and fixtures, adding an attractive and functional element to your styling space. Today’s medicine cabinets have become more customizable and durable; explore the options and discover which selection will make the most sense for you.

Unique shapes, finished glass edges, coordinating wooden frames, or frameless options abound.
Medicine cabinets with frames can offer a decorative or polished touch while frameless designs have their own sleek and modern appeal. While wooden frames can be designed to match specific vanity lines in the same range of stain or paint finishes for a coordinated look, frameless designs often have a beveled edge or other decorative glass finishes.

Find the Right Features

Medicine cabinets with mirrored interiors will make it easy to see everything inside, plus, you will be able to see yourself in the door’s interior mirror while having access to all the items you need. Adjustable integrated task lighting can eliminate harsh shadows and hot spots. Medicine cabinets with dimmable lights can be adjusted for daytime and nighttime use. Some models feature an adjustable magnifying mirror option that slides up and down to accommodate people of different heights, and when not in use, the mirror lays flat on the door.
