In a recent blog post, we suggested using dual storage/linen-style cabinets flanking a pedestal sink in-between. We still like that set up, but we’ve also recently discovered how appealing an extra medicine cabinet can be as well. Two is definitely better than one!
For instance, if you’re renovating or building new, consider integrating a recessed wall space as the designated spot for an extra medicine cabinet. It’s got a vintage-esque design sense that just seems to work and provides an extra spot to hold toiletries without making a mess. We like this, especially in an aesthetic with clean lines or a loft-like ambience. In the DecorPlanet.com portfolio several medicine cabinets that could validate this “recessed” suggestion are:
- Fresca light oak bathroom medicine cabinet with three level shelving. It’s a beauty that offers a bonus no one should live without — its doors contain slow closing hinges.
- Ultra retro, Fresca small bathroom medicine cabinet with mirrors. Designed for a compact bathroom space, it’s got a bonus too — mirrors everywhere! Plus, the inside features two tempered glass shelves. Handy!
Alternatively, if the medicine cabinet idea doesn’t fit your style, you can still make the most out of an extra recessed wall area. Designers recommend “cap trim tile” to create ledges for resting quality tempered glass shelving. It’s still very much a retro throwback, and we’re totally behind the notion of an open cabinet. It’s the perfect spot to stack your Egyptian combed cotton towels — and here we go again — it’s imitating the hotel to home design philosophy too. Now, here’s the kicker: If you like, add a display alcove into the space as an annex, how about above the toilet?
