Why Bathroom Cabinets are so much in demand

Bathroom mirror cabinets may cover all the junk that we don't want other people to see and are useful for spaces that lack storage. They also provide a clean and modern appearance.

They provide symmetry in the area by visually balancing a row of washroom furnishings beneath.

To create a harmonious interior design, you may integrate the cabinet finish with the materials used throughout the space.

Without giving up on either side, they offer storage, contemplation, functionality or the best of both worlds!

Things to Consider While Buying a Mirror Cabinet

1. Cabinet Size

First, think about how big the bathroom is. Perhaps it should go without saying, but smaller spaces typically call for smaller mirrors or furniture units. For smaller bathrooms and ensuites, a slimline mirror cabinet is frequently the ideal option. 

Slimline bathroom mirror cabinets provide your bath space a smooth, modern appearance that, depending on the style, may work with both classic and modern designs. If this is high on your list of objectives, be sure to look at mirror bathroom cabinets that provide additional features.

If space is limited, there are many possibilities for all bathrooms, including corner cabinets, ones with sliding doors, and inset units, sunken into the wall. Single slimline mirror cabinets are also available, which are smaller both in depth and breadth. The bathroom shall have a sleek, modern, and large look while yet having great lighting and internal storage space thanks to recessed or semi-recessed cabinets

2. Storage Space

The size of the bathroom mirror cabinet may well be determined by the layout and size of your bathroom, but having enough storage is typically always a good idea if you have the room. If it is a family bathroom, this is especially true. If the mirrored cabinet is to be wall mounted, make sure it isn't too broad or too close to a neighbouring wall or shower screen, as these conditions might prevent the doors from opening.

3.Power Source

It's crucial to remember that cabinets with lighting or shaver plugs must be placed close to a power supply. Always call a professional if you're doubtful regarding the same!


The majority of our bathroom mirror cabinets will need to be connected to your main supply, therefore you will need an electrician's assistance. Please verify that your supply can give the 240V that our bathroom cabinets need in order to operate at their peak efficiency to prevent dissatisfaction.


You can also go in for a battery-operated mirrored bathroom cabinet if you want to forgo the procedure of hooking your equipment to your mains supply. All of these require 8xAA batteries, however by doing it this way, you won't need to engage an electrician and can finish the installation fast and independently.

4. Additional Features

a) Infra-Red/Motion Sensors

The infra-red feature is a motion sensor feature that enables the users to operate the item without touching it since the motion sensor devices sense the presence of the user and enables the item’s function automatically.

b)  Heated Demister Pads

The heated pads are a great invention as they heated up the mirror slightly so that moisture that settles onto the surface of the mirror evaporates thus allowing no steam to cover the mirror.

The bluetooth feature installed in bathroom mirrors allows you to connect your tablet/laptop/phone to the speakers in the mirror without the help of any wires.

Types of Bathroom Mirror Cabinets

A bathroom mirror cabinet shall fill the area with the perfect amount of brightness and create the appearance that it is larger since mirrors reflect light. However, an additional light source is almost always necessary in bathrooms, so many of our mirrored bathroom cabinets also come with built-in lights.

Some units also come with helpful interior lighting and downlights that illuminate the sink area under the mirror cabinet.

Make sure you have enough to around the mirror/mirror cabinet and take the size of the door into consideration before fixing the bathroom wall-mirror.

When analysing the placement of your bathroom from an aesthetic point of you, in order to make your bathroom look more charming and well-planned look for a place right opposite to the bathroom’s entrance to make sure that it's not the side of the mirror cabinet that one sees when entering the bathroom, but sees the elegant front side instead!

Another important thing to consider is the ratios of your bathroom fixtures and furniture before you decide the size of the mirror you require. To ensure all your furniture in the bathroom is strealines, as a rule of thumb, make sure that the mirror isn’t greater in width than the width of the furniture that shall stand below it. This shall leave your bathroom looking highly immaculate and tastefully decorated. You needn’t worry much about this in case of wall-to-wall mirrors.

Maintaining a Bathroom Mirror Cabinet

With a little assistance, our mirrored cabinets may continue to appear brand new even after the lengthy manufacturer’s guarantees they come with have passed. When you clean a mirror, it might seem like you are caught in an endless loop because each time you remove one streak, two more appear in its place. Use cotton buds to remove any little amounts of dirt, toothpaste, etc., then a microfiber cloth to clean the whole surface. 

Instead of using harsh chemicals, try natural cleaning agents like water and vinegar for even better results. Strong cleaning solutions, particularly ones containing ammonia, harm your mirror by removing the top layer and exposing black streaks.
