Recessed Medicine Cabinet - show me yours

Im looking for a recessed medicine cabinet, preferably frameless mirror. I'd like to see some installed. Does anyone have images they can post?

This one is a Nutone 52WH344DP. You buy them singly--as many as you want and then install them together. We put in a triple over the double vanity.

I should've cleaned it before photographing it, but it's getting late and I'm sleeeepy....

The interiors have nice glass shelves and a mirrored back wall. They are very nicely made.

Just don't use the Restoration Hardware one, whatever you do. You can see what happened to mine in the other thread here where I posted my mirror and my experience.

We used Robern recessed med cabs in all three bathrooms (mid-level in two bathrooms, a higher-end model in the MB because we wanted a 6" deep med cab in that bathroom--we didn't get it with any bells and whistles extras). Quality of all 3 is great, and all 3 could have been mounted with either a right or left opening (you just flip the cab over to mount either way). Ours have flat mirrors, but I think we could have gotten the same dimensions with beveled mirrors had we so desired.

You can see pics or ours in my sub-albums on the link below.

Like cat-mom, we used Robern 24x30 recessed cabinets in the MB. Excellent quality. I happen to still have a picture of the framing before they went in:

How much space to you need to "lift" up Robern uplifts?

A standard 8' ceiling works just fine? The min space would be 28"

Check out "Afina Broadway" models. I just did a lot of research and this seemed to be the best value compared to Robern (although I do love the uplift model). The have polished edges (no bevel) as an option, and are all aluminum cabinets. I ordered the "TD4836RBRD", which is a super large one (3 doors), but I haven't received it yet,

I just received my Afina broadway today by freight shipper. Made in china, but It's the real deal, all aluminum, and bomber hinges. So far so good.
