Wood Medicine Cabinets

Updated

Wood medicine cabinets come with a cozier, lived-in sense when compared to their stainless-steel counterparts. They come in all shapes and sizes, with some that offer adjustable shelves. Find them with mirrors on either the outside or inside or both or select a glass or solid pine door instead. Hide all your vitamins behind a solid door or put them on display with medicine cabinets designed with open shelves.

Designer Advice:

This medicine cabinet is the perfect addition to rustic home décor. One disadvantage is the front-facing glass door because it will not let you hide medications. Keep this fact in mind when shopping for a new cabinet.

Wooden Medicine Cabinet with Sliding Barn Door

Wooden Medicine Cabinet with Sliding Barn Door

Inset mirror and sliding barn wood door, this medicine cabinet is a wonderful alternative to a swing open door. Its clever design is functional and trendy and is offered in a rustic brown and white.

Designer Advice:

Store vitamins, Q-tips, and other small items on the left-hand side while you use the mirror on the right-hand side. Sliding doors can catch small fingers, so this cabinet may not be the best option in a child’s bathroom.

Three door Wood Medicine Cabinet with Mirrors

Water-resistant to prevent warped shelves, this wooden medicine cabinet comes with tri-view mirror doors and plenty of shelves to store bathroom items. Manufactured with white finished wood, it features a surface mount for easy installation.

Buying Guide

To child proof wood medicine cabinets surface mount, you should start by keeping the medicines out of sight as well as out of reach. That’s why we recommend choosing a cabinet with a door that can actually be closed rather than one consisting of open shelves, even if you’ve already found a fairly high spot for it on your bathroom wall.

You should also consider choosing a wood medicine cabinet surface mount with a child proof lock: that way, even if they were to climb on the sink to reach it (you’d be surprised!), they won’t actually be able to open it.

Wood surface mount medicine cabinets can make your bathroom look a lot more streamlined, but they’re not for everyone. In general, we recommend that you install a medicine cabinet if you have a very small vanity, you don’t have any (or much) under-sink storage in your bathroom, and you have more than a few toiletries. Vertical storage is one of the smartest upgrades you can make in your home - and if you’re looking to sell your home, this type of upgrade can certainly make your home more versatile, as well.

Your wood medicine cabinets surface mount should have a depth of approximately four inches. This is pretty standard for medicine cabinets; recessed medicine cabinets should have a similar type of measurement. If you require a deeper medicine cabinet for any reason, you may have to work with a carpenter to build a custom piece.
