If your bathroom looks more like a cluttered pharmacy than a peaceful retreat, a generously sized medicine cabinet could help clean things up.
“It provides a lot of extra storage,” said Winston Kong, a partner at Champalimaud Design in New York. And it also elevates and conceals potentially embarrassing or dangerous items, like medications and razors, “not only from guests, but also from kids.”
To choose a cabinet, consider how it will complement other fixtures in the bathroom. “One of the most beautiful parts of the bathroom is usually the vanity,” he said, “so it has to integrate with that design.”
A traditional or rustic vanity could be paired with a wood-framed medicine cabinet, for instance, while a modern, minimalist vanity might benefit from a recessed, mirrored cabinet that almost disappears.
