CHOOSING A MIRRORED CABINET
You first need to know the size you have and/ or require - some mirrored cabinets will be too large and others too small. Style or design is the most important feature for some people and this being the case you may sacrifice function for form! However for others narrowing the huge range of choice down first by size is the easiest method. Traditional designs tend to be constructed of timber and the Imperial range are top quality examples of these. Contemporary models tend to be made of more modern materials like metal alloy. Electrical features are another area of choice. If you have power in the location of the cabinet or you are able to add an electrical connection then there are many cabinets that feature stylish lighting options and even some with shaver sockets that enable you to charge toothbrushes, powered shavers and bathroom specific hairdryers. Some lighting can be fitted above cabinets to light traditional cabinets and modern models without built in power.
INSTALLING A MIRRORED CABINET
Installation in this category varies between models and makes however there are several points to take into account with every installation. Getting the right fixings to securely fasten your mirrored cabinet onto the wall is critical. If you have a solid wall made of stone, brick or concrete block then screws and raw plugs appropriate for the size of your product will be the best method. If your walls are stud partition or some other form of cavity wall then there are several options. Specialist wall plugs may be suitable for smaller cabinets but larger items will require some strengthening of the wall or the locating the framework already there and ensuring that a few of the fixings attach to this more sturdy material. When measuring the location of the fixings you should use a level - getting the cabinet perfectly level not only looks better but also ensures that the equipment inside will sit safely upright! If you're fixing your new purchase over a basin ensure that the height you set allows you to bend over to wash your face at the sink without hitting your head. In addition check that the smallest adult in the family can reach the shelving. If you are intending on keeping medicines and other more dangerous materials in the cabinet please ensure that the top shelves are well out of reach of any children in the family. If you have an electrical point to connect then ensure that a qualified electrician completes the installation for you! After all you need to be alive to enjoy your beautiful new mirrored cabinet!
