Mirror Cabinet – Pro’s and Con’s
November 25, 2017

We all want storage! If you build it they will fill it is my motto so when deciding if you want a mirror cabinet to remember, storage is king. Below is a list of Mirror Cabinets pros and cons featured in our bathroom renovations in Perth WA.





For one thing, a medicine cabinet that has a mirrored door or surface is double purpose. It serves as an ideal place for medicine, toothbrushes and shaving razors while giving you a mirror as well. You open the cabinet, get your shaving razor, close it and shave. No need to move from your position.

Then is its ability to compliment any kind of style. You don’t have to do a lot of research to make sure you won’t be spoiling your decor. They also are known to be a good way to give an illusion of size. They can make your tiny bathroom look bigger. Unlike wood or other materials, they give the bathroom a clean look. Their reflective surface fits bathroom fixtures well.





For those who have young children, any kind of mirrored furniture could be dangerous. Unless you place them in a place that would be out of their reach, you might want to postpone your purchase for when they are older.

Mirrored cabinets also require regular maintenance. Any fingerprint or dirt smudge will be very noticeable and would destroy the effect of the mirror. If you are one of those who doesn’t really have time for cleaning, you have to take this into account.


Though the advantages of having a mirrored medicine cabinet outnumber the disadvantages, you’ll have to live with your choice. Take into consideration all factors before making your mind up but deep down I know you want to KEEP ITEMS OFF THE BENCHTOP!
