Designer Advice:

Due to its innovative design, this cabinet is a great option if you have a small bathroom. It will barely take up any wall space, but the two shelves within offer plenty of storage options. In addition, its understated design will match traditional and more modern bathrooms. As the mirror is removable, you can prevent condensation build-up by cleaning it separately.

Open Black Frame Medicine Cabinet

AdirHome

Arriving fully assembled, this cabinet has two shelves. Each shelf has a generous gap in-between for bigger items. Plus, the open frame means everything is in plain sight. Crafted from long-lasting solid hardwood, it measures eighteen inches tall.

Designer Advice:

The open-shelf design of this cabinet means you won’t waste any time in the mornings trying to find your deodorant. Because of this, we recommend this cabinet if you have a very narrow bathroom. However, the no mirror could be a potential downside for some. Although practical, this cabinet won’t reflect light like one with a mirror.

Buying Guide

In theory, any medicine cabinet can be recessed, but that really depends on your walls and bathroom. In fact, if your plumbing lines are right behind your allocated space, you won’t be able to install a black recessed medicine cabinet. This also depends on your available depth, which is why you’ll usually have more luck recessing smaller medicine cabinets that aren’t too deep.

Replacing your old recessed medicine cabinet with a new one is an easy process. First, choose a new cabinet, such as a sleek black recessed medicine cabinet, similar to the cabinet you are replacing. This ensures that you do not have to do additional work to resize the wall cavity.

Next, loosen your old cabinet’s fasteners. Take this cabinet out and set it aside. Put your new recessed cabinet in the opening to ensure a proper fit. Use a level to make sure it’s sitting straight, then follow the manufacturer’s instructions to secure it to the wall. Check that the door opens and insert the shelves. Just like that, your new medicine cabinet is now in place.

A black recessed medicine cabinet goes with tiles that allow it to pop. Using neutral or pale colors like cream and ivory is a great choice for bringing your medicine cabinet to the forefront. The pale wall and floor tiles allow the black cabinet to stand out and become the room's focal point. Greys and silvers also work well if you want to glam up your bathroom and give it an ultra-modern or contemporary feel.
