Do you regret surface-mounted medicine cabinet?
When I list my regrets about how we handled our remodel, not allowing enough lead time for all the big and small decisions will be at the top. The contractor is telling us that he needs to know about the medicine cabinet NOW if we want it in the wall of our rather small master bath. I hadn't even given it a thought, just assumed that we would have a medicine cabinet as I'm very used to them (in our rental, I keep trying to open the above-sink mirror) and find them useful.
My husband suggests we just get a surface-mounted cabinet instead of the flush mount I'd intended. That way the contractor won't have to move a pipe that's currently in the way, we can let him proceed with the sheetrock, and we will have more time to choose the cabinet. Again, I have never had a surface mounted medicine cabinet and I'm afraid it will be obtrusive and look like an afterthought. Any thoughts on this?
