Bathroom Medicine Cabinets
Do You Have One? Do You Need One?
Everyone loves a good bathroom cabinet. There are so many things
that they are good for: holding linen, toiletries, and other fanciful
Bathroom cabinets can be attached to the wall or free standing
on the floor. Sometimes, they have special purposes; sometimes,
they are more a general use cabinet. For instance, a bathroom medicine
cabinet is in almost every bathroom made since the 70s.
A good bathroom medicine cabinet is indispensable. The main priority
of a bathroom medicine cabinet is to hold medicine behind the mirror.
This keeps the medicine safe from moisture and children, but easily
accessible when needed. These are great in any bathroom.
Bathroom Cabinet Options
Guest Cabinets - Guest bathrooms that have a
medicine cabinet full of guest toiletries make guests feel welcomed
and at home.
Doors - One choice is whether there will be one,
two, or three doors on the bathroom medicine cabinet. Obviously,
each will have the advantage of space, but the more doors it has,
it usually takes up more space. However, this is a great choice
for many homeowners. Sometimes, the center piece does not open,
but both of the other pieces open. I had one in my last home that
was a huge center mirror with a corner medicine cabinet on each
side of the enormous mirror.
Lights - Another choice is whether you want lights
or no lights. The lights can be on many places near the bathroom
medicine cabinet. On mine, I have a row of larger bulbs across the
top of the mirror. My mom has a row of small light bulbs on both
sides of bathroom medicine cabinet. I have a neighbor who installed
her own bathroom mirror and has a single, beautiful light in the
center-top of the bathroom mirror. This is obviously a decision
best made to fit your personal tastes.
Material & Color - Of course, when you are
choosing any cabinet, the material and color is always an option.
The choices will depend on the manufacturer and your personal choice.
Many people prefer a finish that matches the rest of their bathroom;
other people choose a finish that will accent other aspects of the
bathroom. This is obviously a choice best made by the personal choosing
a bathroom medicine cabinet.
Vendor - Bathroom cabinets can be found at almost
any home improvement store and most home d cor stores; almost all
specialty kitchen and bathroom store will have a wide variety to
pick and choose from.
Internet - There is always the Internet which
has opened the market to things you may not have otherwise ever
noticed. However, since these are fragile and heavy, I suggest taking
a good look at the shipping and handling costs as well as their
breakage policy. Better safe than sorry.
As is obvious, bathroom medicine cabinets offer a lot in the way
of convenience and safety. In addition, you get a good amount of
d cor for the bathroom. For added security you can get a locking
cabinet that will protect all of that medicine and keep it away
from people that it may otherwise harm.
So, feel free to find one of the better products for your bathroom
needs and pick a bathroom medicine cabinet.
