If you need a medicine cabinet for your bathroom remodel, you can stalk your local Re-Store and in just a short while, you are sure to find one. But, old skool cabinets can be quite small, only about 16″ wide and 20″ tall. When I renovated my bathrooms, I wanted more space, so I put in new 20″wide x 26″high medicine cabinets. Square, beveled mirrors. I don’t think the medicine cabinet looks oversized or anything. Now, I’ve discovered these five cute medicine cabinets from Kohler, which all feature additional decorative oomph — arches or frames that might work nicely in vintage homes. Note, these are even taller — 31″ tall. While I think we need to be very sensitive to scale within small spaces, I don’t think the extra 5 inches will be too much. However – I’d likely flank a cabinet this tall with two sconces, not put a single fixture above.
This is absolutely my favorite of all the Kohler designs. That loopdeedoo arch reminds me of a 1930s or 1940s triple-vanity mirror I owned once. It is very sweet, and I think it would look great in a “sweet”-styled bathroom. Here’s the listing on Amazon, these cabinets are available from a variety of sources: Kohler K-CB-CLC2030VAS Single Door 20-Inch W by 30-Inch H by 5-Inch D Aluminum Cabinet (apparently no longer available, but I will keep photo up for historical purposes.) Disclosure: I get a spiff anytime you buy anything after clicking into Amazon from any A-links on my site.
