Medicine Cabinet Options for 30" vanity: What would you pick?

Posted by bathremodelstress (My Page) on

We selected the pictured Strasser vanity in a 30" width for our small bath remodel. We're struggling with last minute decisions about the medicine cabinet.

Strasser offers the following matching medicine cabinet options:
1) 24"W x 27"H surface mount
2) 19"W x 27"H surface mount
3) 20"W x 31"H recessed
4) 15 1/4"W x 31"H recessed

We really wanted to go recessed, but the matching recessed sizes seem awkward (does the 20" x 31" seem too tall?) The best size option seems to be the first one. Is a surface mount medicine cabinet "bulky" in a small bathroom? Should that be avoided?

Another option would be a 20"W x 26"H frameless Kohler. The look we're going for is similar to the bathroom pictured, so wasn't sure if frameless would be too modern, etc. Thoughts on the best option?

Personally, I would opt for the 20"W x 31"H recessed. I prefer recessed medicine cabinets or flat mirrors. I think 20x30 would look fine with a 30" wide vanity. It won't be square like your inspiration picture, but rectangle looks good too. I have two rectangular pivot mirrors in two different bathrooms, one is proportionally narrower than the other and I like both.
