i’m very torn on medicine cabinets because i really do love a beautiful statement mirror, but i have too much stuff to forgo any storage space. now that we’ve lived with medicine cabinets for a few years i don’t think we could ever give it up. the height for storage is so optimal and convenient and i can’t imagine putting everything in drawers or cabinets below now! so while aesthetically, i definitely prefer a beautiful mirror, convenience wise a medicine cabinet is just crucial!! YOU SHOULD SEE ALLLLLL THE CRAP WE KEEP IN OURS!
first– let’s look at some very convincing arguments for medicine cabinets.
oooomg i love that this insanely stunning bathroom is using standard inset medicine cabinets and they look so GOOD.
another very simple standard medicine cabinet, but looks so elevated along with a beautifully designed bathroom.
i’m also sad to report that our medicine cabinets have been discontinued, there was a safety recall and they came and added a piece to our mirrors so they wouldn’t fall off and shatter– and at the same time it seems like they just stopped making them altogether. i wish they would just sell them with this new little mirror piece instead because they’re definitely my favorites and i would even buy them again for our next house, but since that’s not an option– i rounded up some alternatives that i think look pretty great.
01. similar to ours but simple and white $296
02. a pretty sliding one — can’t speak to the quality but it looks good! $319
03. this one also slides out which is kinda nice unless it doesn’t work well haha $149
04. weird there aren’t more wood options, this one is very pretty $400
05. a beautiful arched mirror AND medicine cabinet!! love this one $320
06. this one looks identical to ours, but they have glass shelves instead of wood $699
07. lots of storage in this one $435
08. such a good one– i love that it’s circular and wood framed! $442
09. i like that this one feels actually designed $349
