Anyone help me - How high to hang Medicine Cabinet?
Something so trivial --- it shouldn't be this hard to make a decision!
Please help me decide as we've been going 'round and 'round all day about this.
Wall on left is a 3/4 wall to shower. The bathroom door, when open, is the exact size of the shower entrance.
The 3/4 wall will have two ORB towel rings, one above the other but off-center.
The ORB faucet/fixtures will be off-set on the right because my thinking was to have it on the left would be too much ORB in one corner.
So far, everything was going along smoothly.
We set up the vanity (not plumbed, centered or secure to wall) to get an idea how high we wanted the medicine cabinet.
That's where our problems started.
Had I thought ahead --- waaaay ahead...
No, hubby will Not cut down the 3/4 wall by a foot --- I already asked. The look on his face---priceless.
The 3/4 wall is the exact height as the top of the med cab.
Looks funny to me.
Hubby is going to cap the wall with 1 3/4" wood (counter top) with small over-hang, for a plant (his decorating contribution so I can't say no *g*)
Here are pics, mock-ups we are doing to try to decide where to put the med. cab.
Higher? Lower? Too low and it will give a crunched-in look to the faucets (pic of hubby holding spout in approx location in last pic).
Too high and I'm having to tip-toe see my whole face in the mirror but to me it looks better in relation to the 3/4 wall.
I'm sorry this is so long but I canNOT believe such a simple thing, a simple decision "How high do you want the med. cab.?" could possibly cause so much frustration. LOL
Many times today we've told each other "Let's take a break from this, go on to something else and come back with a fresh mind". It's not working. We come back and all I do is add books, take away books, stand back, add books. All the while poor hubby is shaking his head, leaning on the backer board counter and holding a spout.
What was supposed to be a simple medicine cabinet install this morning at 9 a.m. is still a med cab held up with books at almost 9 p.m.
I'm very much asymmetrical when it comes to seeing things with my eye. The idea of the top of the 3/4 wall being the exact height as the med. cab. is --- well, it's odd, off, something's not right in my mind's eye.
Any advice how to 'fix' the wall/med. cab. situation?
Or is this something that is only a problem in my own mind and not something I should be so frustrated over?
