Everything about the cabinet and its quick delivery is excellent except for one small detail. The backing is made made of very rough wood paneling and splintery. One of the two back panels was cracked aand had deformed compression print. Both had to be replaced with smooth paneling for a decent look. By removing a few inches from the rear of the top and bottom trim the cabinet was inset into the wall. One benefit that was not mentioned is that the two sides of the cabinet do not have to function as one cabinet. They could be mounted to the wall independently.
This medicine cabinet is a solid unit. The door has some heft, which is nice so you don't feel like you're accidentally slamming a flimsy cabinet door shut. The glass shelves are thick, and the shelf supports capture the edges of the glass - very nice. The shelves are adjustable. The few cons I have: -The door hinges, while large, are not hefty enough to support the weight of the door. While the door construction itself is solid, the hinges need to be beefed up in order to support the weight. I could not adjust the hinges to get the door square to the frame in both width and depth. I settled on getting the door square to the frame in width (when you're facing it), which means the door (when looking at it from the side) is not flush to the frame. See the next point.... -The magnet does not keep the door closed. Due to the hinges not being hefty enough to support the door weight, the bottom of the door pulls in and the top pulls out....thus the magnets to hold the door shut (which are located at the top of the door) do not touch and there is a gap between the door and frame. I will remedy by putting a heavier duty magnet at the jamb of the door. -The hardware to hang the cabinet is laughable. It comes with two medium sized screws and two anchors to hold one heavy cabinet. I decided to use my own heavier duty anchors and screws (make sure to test the screws heads in the cabinet screw pockets if you are using your own screws). Hanging was a breeze...but then I went to open the door and it pulled the cabinet bottom away from the wall. The cabinet does not come with an anchor/screw to keep the cabinet bottom from pulling away from the wall when you open it. I counter sunk two screws at the inside of the cabinet (they will be covered up by medicine cabinet "stuff" - or you could get the little white screw covers from the hardware store). All in all we are happy with the cabinet - it fits the style of our bathroom remodel, is simple and timeless, and is very sturdy. The cons of the construction - and needing to remedy a few key issues - have me drop the rating to 3 of 5 stars. If you are even relatively handy, you can also remedy the issues quite easily. You will most likely need two people to lift it up onto the screws.
This cabinet was perfect for my bathroom remodel. I needed this cabinet to go between my mirrors. I was able to use black milk paint and hemp oil to finish after I distressed it. It matched the vanity perfectly. Everything came disassembled except for door hinges which made finishing so easy. Hanging was easy too. It had pre-drilled mounting holes at the top and bottom.
My powder room had a pedestal sink so I used this to hold toilet paper (bottom shelf), air freshener and decorations (middle shelf) and tissues and hand lotion (top shelf). Definitely a nice looking way to add bathroom storage. Bonus - super easy to fold down to put together, and easy to move. After having this for 4 years and it's still in perfect shape, I moved recently and appreciated the fold-down ability. It looks great in the new bathroom too, as it is neutral enough to go with any decor.
