Installing a Bathroom Cabinet Behind Your Mirror

Bathroom cabinets in vanities provide great storage space for your toiletries, towels, and more. But what if you this doesn’t provide you with enough storage space? Or what if your bathroom is not large enough for a vanity? There are still space-effective storage solutions you can choose, such as a bathroom cabinet or medicine cabinet behind your bathroom mirror.  

What to store in a medicine cabinet

Despite the name, a medicine cabinet isn’t just for medicine. It’s a good place to store items that you need easy access to on a daily or regular basis. So, you might store painkillers and other medications in there, especially if there are tablets you need to remember to take each morning or night. It can also be a good place for basic first aid materials, so you don’t have to hunt around for them in an emergency.

The medicine cabinet is also where a lot of people store their toothbrush, toothpaste, mouth wash, and dental floss. You need to use them at the sink every day, so it helps to have them on hand. Other toiletries, hair products, makeup, shaving gel and razor might also go in here. It’s entirely up to you! 

Pros and cons of having a medicine cabinet

Medicine cabinets are useful because they provide storage space that’s easy to access and is also inconspicuous. It doesn’t take up a lot of room and a visitor might not even notice there’s a cabinet behind the mirror if they didn’t know in the first place if it’s one that’s recessed into the wall. On that topic, another pro is that there are lots of different styles and designs for you to choose from, both for the cabinet and the mirror in front of it, so you can design a bathroom cabinet that suits your space and preferences.

On the other hand, recessed cabinets can sometimes be a challenge and an additional expense, depending on how deep you want the cabinet to be and if there is any wiring or plumbing in the way. Plus, these cabinets don’t tend to provide a very deep area, so you won’t have much storage space if this is your only bathroom cabinet. However, they do make a great addition to a bathroom vanity for those things you need quick and easy access to.
