Looking into the mirror on the medicine cabinet makes brushing our teeth, flossing, or shaving much easier than just depending on the mirror on the wall in the bathroom. These are small actions we take every day and are so used to that our routine becomes automatic. But it makes a difference when you choose the right kind of medicine cabinet.
Choosing Recessed Medicine Cabinets
One option is to choose recessed medicine cabinets for your bathroom. Here are some benefits and drawbacks of this choice.
Benefits: First off, it will save you some space. This is important, especially in guest bathrooms where space is already at a premium. Even if you have a traditional bathroom design, these cabinets fit right in. Plus, if you have a modern bathroom, the medicine cabinet won’t look out of place either.
Drawbacks: Sadly, it’s more difficult to install a recessed medicine cabinet. You’ll need specialists to come and help, especially if you need to rearrange plumbing and electrical lines as part of your overall bathroom upgrade. This is because a recessed medicine needs to be alone in its spot on the wall. Plumbing, wiring, and other hidden components of your home will get in the way during the installation process. That said, if you are already committed to remodeling or renovating your bathroom, then this might be the option for you.
Choosing Wall-Mounted Medicine Cabinets
Like their recessed counterparts, wall-mounted medicine cabinets come with their own set of pros and cons. Here are some factors to consider.
Benefits: Installing one of these is much easier because it doesn’t involve modifying the structure of your bathroom. You could even have some installed in other parts of the house outside of the bathroom, too. You can add one to a bathroom you have now or include it in the plans for a brand new bathroom. It’s also possible to tackle this project on your own as well.
Drawbacks: Sadly, you might be unsatisfied with how the wall-mounted medicine cabinet looks. For one thing, it doesn’t look as good. You might also be limited by the styles and designs you can choose. Plus, you might not have enough studs to mount one on the wall when you are doing this project by yourself.
