Having a mirrored medicine cabinet in your bathroom can be very useful in your daily routine. It will save you time in the mornings when you need to get ready for your day, and it will save time in the evening when you are ready to rest and relax.
It saves time because you can store items in the cabinet that are used on a daily basis – like deodorant, mouthwash, shaving cream, razors, mascara, and lipstick. They can be kept right behind the mirror instead of being moved from one room to another.
There are many different varieties of mirrored medicine cabinets available today. The style of cabinet you use will depend on the decor of your bathroom. The cabinet can be made of chrome, nickel, aluminum, or wood – such as oak or maple.
Most bathroom medicine cabinets have a mirrored door that is either hinged or sliding for easy access. The bathroom cabinet mirror itself comes in a variety of shapes and sizes – rectangular, oval, square, and arched. Mirrors can also be added to the back of a hinged door, to make it easier for you to see all sides of your face when getting ready for your day.
Some have adjustable shelves, so you can fit whatever you need into the cabinet. The shelves provide a dry storage area that is rust resistant, in which to keep containers for items such as hairspray, mousse, perfume, or contact lens solutions.
The number of shelves that come with the cabinet is dependent upon the size of the cabinet that you choose. The taller and/or wider the dimensions, the more shelves you will have.
Lights can be purchased with the mirrored medicine cabinet that are either attached, or installed on the wall just above the mirror. They make it easier for you to see what you’re doing when you are fixing yourself up to go out and face the day.
Lighting options would include several ball-shaped lights, or a bar light placed above the cabinet. Halogen lamps will provide the best illumination, but may just be so bright that they show you details you don’t really want to see.
And finally, don’t forget that you might need additional electrical outlets, so you can plug in a hair dryer or electric razor – or other electical gadgets you might want to use in front of your mirrored medicine cabinet.
