Looking for an unfinished wood medicine cabinet with no mirror

Posted by skuba (My Page) on

Hi,

Our vanity comes with matching mirrors, but I would like a little bit more storage in the bathroom. So I am looking for recommendations on where to find an unfinished recessed wood door cabinet that I can put on wall next to vanity.

The idea is to paint it to match the wall color or the vanity color.

I am attaching our vanity. And linking below an example of a cabinet.

Another idea is to get ride of these mirrors and just put frameless mirror cabinets, but I like how these mirrors match the shaker style.

Suggestions, ideas?

Thanks

This is one below would match very well the style of the vanity, but U$ 380 is a lot:

Can't find anything else that has a wood door. Doesn't need to be unfinished if I could refinish it.

Would it look weird if I just put a frameless recessed mirror cabinet there? I mean because the 2 main mirrors have a white shaker frame, the recessed cabinet would be frameless. If you think it's fine, I could get a Robern one, like this:

What size should it be considering the vanity mirrors are 24x36"including the frame?

I could maybe go with a semi recessed shaker style with mirror like these:

But might need to refinish to match whites of cabinets.

What do you guys think? Ideas?

Thanks

Turn the mirrors into medicine cabinets by attaching hinges and cutting and building the recess. It's not that difficult to do as long as you don't have drain vent pipes in the way. If you do, then you can't do a medicine cabinet there anyway. An alternative would also be to use one of those "door" type mirrors and place it on an adjacent wall where you could utilize the stud cavity as storage as well. You might have to custom build a sturdier frame for it than I've seen them come with, but it's an inexpensive way to get more storage and the full length mirror you need as well.

Hey guys, guess what? I had forgotten my house is old, so I don't have 2x4 studs, so all those recessed cabs with 3 1/2 will be too big.

I only have 2 3/4 plus the wall, making it 3 1/4 at most. Now it's getting even harder to find anything, even mirror cabinets.

Hollysprings, I don't think those mirrors that come with my vanity would work well to be turned into medicine cabinets. They are very huge at 24x36, and probably heavy.

Hello all, my company makes picture frame medicine cabinets which are designed for exactly this type of situation. You can view them all at the link below. They are available in three different unfinished frames (as well as a number of finished colors).
