Any woman can tell you that storage in the bathroom is key. We can never have enough of it, and it’s often hard to come by. One of the best and easiest solutions is to add a medicine cabinet.
Years ago medicine cabinets were boring. They were just a simple piece of glass on top of a shallow, often plastic, box that could be recessed into the wall or surface-mounted if you couldn’t cut a hole in the wall. Sizes and shapes were limited, and forget having something decorative. Thanks to companies like Robern and Afina, the world of medicine cabinets has changed dramatically.
Many cabinet companies now offer decorative frames to surround the simple piece of glass on the front of a medicine cabinet. These range from wood to metal to glass, and come in styles to suit any space. One such example is Robern’s new Main Line Cabinets with metal frames. There are three styles of frames, each available in a variety of sizes and and finishes to match your faucet. If you’re looking for a wooden frame, take a look at what Afina has to offer.
Medicine cabinet companies are now offering a multitude of sizes, including 6″ and 8″ depth cabinets that fit toilet paper and hair dryers, and full-length cabinets that double as full-length mirrors. Don’t have room for a full-length medicine cabinet in your bathroom? Think about putting on in your bedroom! It’s great to store makeup, hair products, even jewelry or cleaning supplies.
Cabinet companies are also coming out with accessories to help with organization, as well as safety. My favorite accessory is the addition of electrical outlets to Robern’s cabinets. For less than $200 you can add two outlets to any of the PL Series cabinets. This is ideal for anyone who uses electric razors or electric toothbrushes. Another great accessory is a lock box. Both Robern and Kohler offer these, and it is a great way to ensure the safety of any medications you may take, especially any that may be attractive to younger children in the home.
