Recessed Bathroom Cabinets

Recessed Bathroom Cabinets


A recessed bathroom cabinet is not all about the extra storage you get; it is about making your bathroom a comfortable and enjoyable place. The mirror will greet your reflection when you wake up, and say bye in the evening. It is the essential part of the bathroom.

Even though a recessed bathroom cabinet is useful, once you go out to choose one you would like to place in your bathroom, you might find it difficult. In addition, installing one will make more effort than placing the wall-mounted one, but wall-mounted cabinet will take more place than the recessed one.

A recessed cabinet will save you much valuable space, especially if you have a small bathroom. It fits into the architecture, and it will perfectly meld into your bathroom scheme. However, when it comes to work while installing a recessed bathroom cabinet, you will find it more difficult than installing the wall-mounted one. You will probably have to hire a professional to install one, and you must make sure that there are no installations inside the wall where you want to install it. You will have to hire an electrician, a plumber if you need to redirect all the pipes and wires. This means that installing a recessed bathroom cabinet will cost you more money than the wall-mounted one.

Another disadvantage could be the fact that the mirror is a bit far from the wall-mounted part, and your kids could encounter difficulties while trying to reach for something. Nevertheless, the simple solution for this is using a stool while reaching out for the things inside.

If you are renovating your bathroom, then a recessed cabinet is the perfect solution, since there are numerous construction parts involved.

What you will need to get in order to start installing the recessed bathroom cabinet is a framed box inside the wall you want to place it. You must take care that you get all the dimensions properly, and then start making the frame of the cabinet. Framing the wall is the most difficult part of the process.

If you plan to use a wall already in the bathroom, then you need to call an expert (such as a plumber or an electrician), in order to see whether there are some installations behind the wall. However, this has to be done before you buy the cabinet.

Installations, such as wires or plumbing supply lines can’t be left behind the recessed cabinet, so make sure that you call experts to remove these obstacles by rerouting them.

If you happen to have venting pipes behind the wall on which you would like to install the recessed cabinet, then, perhaps you will have to choose another wall, as they are difficult to relocate. The other solution is installing a wall-mounted cabinet.

Whichever you choose to install, you will get a nice-looking stylish bathroom with extra storage space, and it will ideally fit in the overall appearance of the bathroom.
