Most bathrooms will feature a cabinet with a mirror hung on the wall behind it. These mirrors are available in a variety of designs, shapes and sizes, including some that are incorporated into a small storage cabinet. The medicine cabinet, as they are called, will usually have a mirrored surface that doubles as a door and swings out using a series of hinges. Consumers can choose from two different designs. One cabinet type is mounted on the wall surface and the other will feature a recessed medicine cabinet mirror.
When people hear the term “recessed” they think of one item inserted into another. These cabinets have a framed mirror that raises them away from the wall along the perimeter. The decorative frame around the mirror gives the item a finished look that adds style to the environment. These frames are made in a variety of colors to match any type of decor. Just like the flat cabinet, the recessed model will have the same type of opening mechanism.
Some of the newer models will have a mirrored surface that is divided into panels. The multiple panels are used in addition to the outer frame to add a decorate element to the unit. Some will have frames that have intricate designs and scroll work. Some may have a Victorian look and be covered in gold for a luxurious look. Many of these units will have lights incorporated into the design to make them even more functional. Sometimes the light fixture is mounted along the top and is equipped with ordinary light bulbs. Other styles will have fluorescent lights attached along the sides. A mirror medicine cabinet is readily available at most home improvement centers and furniture stores. Consumers will find designs to complement any bathroom and they are available in a wide range of styles to fit any size budget.
