Functional and Beautiful Vanity Medicine Cabinets Complete Your Bathroom

Are you finally ready to brighten up the look of your bathroom by adding a few new touches? Or maybe you are ready to just rip everything out and start from scratch? Either way, there are a lot of things you are going to be purchases and a lot of things that you will have on your mind. Because of all of the pressure, many people tend to overlook how important the bathroom medicine cabinets are in a bathroom. While it is easy to remember that you need one, are you leaning towards just going with anything you can get your hands on for cheap? If so, you may want to think twice before you do.

It is important to make sure that you are looking at more factors then just whether or not the medicine cabinet is functional. Many people tend to think that beautiful bathroom cabinets are not functional. While that can certainly be true in a few limited cases, the overall idea when these cabinets are made is to make sure that homeowners can have the best of both worlds, function and beauty.

With so many designs that are available on the market now, there is no reason to not find something that will go perfectly with your individual tastes and style. There are traditional designs, modern designs, and even antique designs which means there is going to be something that is suitable for you and your bathroom. If you are not starting from scratch then it is very important to make sure that you are getting a vanity medicine cabinet that blends in well with your current design. Something too plain or something too over the top will stick out like a sore thumb and that is not the kind of result you want from the new cabinet.

If you are worried about the price of the medicine cabinets that you have interest in, keep in mind that the price ranges will vary. It is not just about the design that you want to go with but rather whom you shop with. There are many times where you will probably find that there could be a fifty, or even sometimes greater, price difference between two companies on the exact same cabinet. This means that just because the medicine cabinet of your dreams is a little out of your price range with one retailer, does not mean that it will be out of your range with all retailers. The key is to look around and make sure that you are getting the best deal on all of the items for the bathroom that you need.

When you finally find that perfect retailer you might even find that you are able to afford the bathroom medicine cabinets that you never thought you would be able to afford. When it comes down to it, you want to make sure that you are getting something that will be beautiful to look at, that will hold all of the stuff you need it to hold, and that will bring an aesthetic value to your home.

It is a good idea to make sure that you are thinking about the future. You want the cabinet that you install to be something that just about anyone would enjoy having in their bathroom. You never know when you will want or need to sell your home so all updates or improvements you make should always be aimed at raising the value and the marketability of your home.

Make sure too that you are going with a retailer that is going to offer you a great warranty on the bathroom medicine cabinets. Look over all of the different kinds of models that they have and you will be amazed that most will come with warranties when you are dealing with great retailers. Online retailers are generally going to be your best bet. They have the means and the ability to offer discounts and warranties that most other companies cannot match. A lot of them will offer discounted shipping or even free shipping in some cases.

In the end, as long as you are not rushing the decision making process and taking your time to look around, you will finally have the perfect bathroom medicine cabinet around. Once it is all said and done and the cabinet is installed, you will be glad that you took the time to go through with the installation.

Hi Susan:

That mirror is the Trenton Grand Mirror/medicine cabinet which I originally found on

Unfortunately, I just checked, and it doesn't look like the site sells that medicine cabinet on its own anymore. It comes as part of a set, which includes a full sink-chest and bathroom vanity. You can find that one here:

If you are interested in the cabinet alone, I'm sure there are plenty of other great online retailers out there who will have it in stock, as it's not a Tradewinds exclusive; though the name of the company that manufactures it escapes me right now.

Good luck, and happy decorating!
