  • Size & Installation

    Mirrored cabinets come in a variety of sizes to match the scale of your styling space and the bathroom overall. To ensure the proper fit for your mirrored cabinet or mirror, it’s important to measure the area accurately.

     

     

  • Size & Installation

    Measure Your Space

    Begin by measuring the width of your vanity. Typically, your mirrored cabinet should be narrower or the same width as the vanity. To determine the height, measure the distance between your lights and faucet. Choose a size that provides clearance above the faucet and below the lights.

  • Installation Type

    Before you choose the installation type for your mirrored cabinet, be sure you know what your space can accommodate. If cutting into the wall will be a problem for any reason, a recessed cabinet won’t be compatible. In general, your safest bet is to choose a dual-mount cabinet that can be recessed or surface-mounted if you encounter any issues.

     

     

  • Size & Installation

    Surface-Mount

    The cabinet or mirror mounts flush with your wall, no cutting required. Side kits are recommended for a polished look

     

  • Size & Installation

    Recessed

    The cabinet installs between the studs in your wall. You’ll need to cut into the wall to install and build the cabinet framework

     

  • Hinges

    Most cabinets can be installed with the hinges on the left or the right, which will determine door swing orientation. 

     

  • Size & Installation

    Slow-Close Hinges 
    Ensure your cabinet door closes softly to protect the mirror and items within. 

    107°-110° Swing 
    A standard mirrored cabinet swing, the door moves a little past where the door is perpendicular to the cabinet. 

    170° Swing 
    Allows you to swing the cabinet door open almost all the way to the wall. A great feature if two people are getting ready together.
