Plain mirror vs mirror medicine cabinet above a Ikea double-bowl sink

9 years ago

Hi all,

I'm going to gut down my master bathroom in June but am still not decisive on putting up a plain mirror or mirror medicine cabinets above a Ikea ODENSVIK 120cm (47") double sinks. I have a few options in mind:

1. Two Kohler Verdera 38cm (15") by 76cm (30") medicine cabinet, single door, so that each one can be placed centered with each bowl.

2. One Kohler Verdera 101cm (40") by 76cm (30") medicine cabinet, three folded doors. More storage space but it is 7" shorter than the sink, won't completely covered both bowls.

3. Pottery Barn Pivot mirror (40" x 24")

More details about the bathroom:

1. The walls of the bathroom will be tiled from floor to ceiling with white subway (6cmx24cm);

2.Contractor don't suggest installing recessed mirror cabinet because that is an exterior wall and the cold climate of Montreal;

3. Height of the bathroom is 8ft. The Ikea Godmorgon mirror cabinet is 37" height which seems too tall. I am worry that the 47" vanity and this tall mirror (47"x37"x5 1/2") may looks too heavy on my tiny bathroom (11ft x 6ft).

Any thought please?
