Medicine cabinet dilemma

last modified: 2 months ago

Hi guys, I am renovating my small main bathroom and could really use some help.

The wall in front of my vanity cannot have a recessed medicine cabinet. It's a complicated story as to why, so just trust me on this...there is no feasible way to do it. I really need the storage, so this leaves me with two options, neither of which I am crazy about. I would love to hear which option you think would be better.

Vanity is 30" wide and standard depth (22" deep with counter). It is in the corner, against a wall.

Option 1 is to get a wall mounted medicine cabinet. This would give me the storage I need and give me an appropriate place to hang a hand towel (on the side wall).

Option 2 is to get a mirror in front of vanity and install a recessed cabinet on the side wall. Hand towel would have to go in a slightly award place.

I am worried about a surface mounted med cab sticking out too much and not looking good...but I feel that Option 2 might look too busy.

Thanks in advance for any advise you can give!
