Bathroom Mirror Cabinet Buying Guide

Bathroom mirror cabinets are one of the most popular and best selling bathroom essentials and it is easy to understand why: in a bathroom, sufficient storage and a useful mirror are vital and this component combines these uses. In addition to being practical, they are also design statements in themselves – the mirror draws the eye and they become the focal point of the room.

A good choice of cabinet can really bring a room style and layout together, so it’s important to choose the right one for your needs. There are hundreds of attractive bathroom mirror cabinets available on our site, so here are some points to consider when selecting the perfect choice for your bathroom.

Cabinet size

The size of the cabinet may well be dictated by the dimensions and arrangement of your bathroom, but if you have the space for a larger unit then it is generally never a bad idea to have plenty of storage. This is especially true if it is a family bathroom. If the cabinet is to be wall mounted, ensure that the cabinet is not too wide, or too close to an adjacent wall or shower screen, which could impede the opening of its doors.

Illuminated mirror cabinets

Mirrors reflect light, so a bathroom mirror cabinet will brighten up the room and give the impression of a larger space. But extra electrical light is usually always an essential for a bathroom, so many of our mirrored cabinets also have built in illumination. Indispensable for close up mirror use, such as shaving, make up or any personal grooming, the light can be focused by means of spotlight style downlighters or a more diffuse LED strip type.

These need to be installed by a qualified electrician, but having all that incredibly convenient light exactly where it is most needed is certainly worth it. Some units also have useful internal lights and down lights underneath the cabinet which light up the sink area.

Shaver sockets

The average man spends just over an hour a week shaving – a task which is made easier when everything needed is kept together in one place. Illuminated bathroom mirror cabinets require wiring into the mains, so very often have a built in shaver socket for additional functionality. Crosswater and VitrA both have a good choice of modern stylish illuminated bathroom mirror cabinets with shaver sockets.

Anti-mist mirror cabinets

Some bathroom mirror cabinets have an integrated heating component which will clear condensation from the surface of the mirror when needed – yet another helpful feature to make busy mornings easier. We recommend the brand Crosswater for cabinets with this extra function.

Space saving cabinets

There is a range of options to suit all bathrooms if space is tight, such as single slimline cabinets which are reduced in depth as well as width, corner cabinets, ones with sliding doors and inset units, recessed into the wall.

A recessed or semi-recessed cabinet can provide adequate internal storage space and wonderful lighting, and yet give a streamlined, contemporary and spacious feel to the bathroom.

Mirror cabinet design styles

Mirrored bathroom cabinets can be either traditional or contemporary forms, designed to reflect and complement your chosen bathroom style. Some of our recommended quality brands for classical style cabinets are Bayswater, Imperial and Burlington.

The addition of LED lighting strips enhance the modern look and open up design options, so many cabinets with illumination offer cutting edge shapes. Look out for contemporary features such as frameless doors, curved cabinet corners, LED light inset patterns, dimmer functions and light tone variability.

Both vintage and ultra-modern style cabinets can showcase modern colours and materials so they can blend seamlessly with any overall scheme. White is a timeless choice, whereas wood veneers and strong colours are en vogue and many brands offer several different attractive surface finishes. We are also seeing reinvented classical tones becoming highly sought after for cabinets, such as deep navy blues, petrol blues and a range of greys.

Design ideas to inspire your cloakroom

When planning installation of a cloakroom, the main goal is to make the best use of a small space and create the illusion of the cloakroom being larger.
You can achieve this goal easily if you choose the perfect colour, room layout, specially designed cloakroom and compact bathroom-furniture.

Use Brighter Colour

Generally, light colours make a room look bigger and brighter.
Lighter, brighter coloured wall is more reflective and it can help to maximise the effect of the light available.

Vanity Unit and basin

Choose a compact vanity unit for your slimline basin, it will provide you extra storage for a smaller space.
This would be perfect for you to hide spare toilet rolls, cleaning products and toiletries inside.
Keeps the outside clutter free!

A floating or wall hung vanity unit can make the illusion of space.
It opens up more of the visible floor space which creates the illusion of a larger surface area.
Or if you are looking for traditional style, this Roper Rhodes Hampton Cloakroom Unit creates a feeling of period classic with its hand-painted finishes.

Roper Rhodes Hampton Cloakroom Unit

The above picture is the Roper Rhodes Hampton Cloakroom Unit

This Britton All in one Floorstanding Vanity & Basin provides the best efficient use of the space.
it holds loo roll and brush!

A well-placed mirror

Use of a well-placed mirror can create the illusion of a greater bathroom space, reflecting the available light and giving the impression of further space at eye level.
Make sure you position it correctly, so you can use a focal point and angle to give the illusion of depth.
Mirrors will also reflect light to make a room brighter and bigger.
A stunning combination of light and glass, this Vitra T4 Single Door Illuminated Mirror Cabinet provides you extra lighting and also satisfy all your personal grooming needs.

Door positioning

Burlington 500mm Wall Hung Toilet

The above picture is the Burlington 500mm Wall Hung Toilet

If possible make sure your door opens outwards, or even choose sliding or folding door to create the least impact in the room.
These are sometimes called “pocket doors” and slide into the door frame and wall cavity area.
Opening the room up without worrying about hitting bathroom furniture or having to shuffle around the door into the room!

Extractor Fans

Generally, unless you’re lucky, there is no window in a cloakroom. Therefore a good ventilation is important here.
This Vectaire X-Mart Advanced Deluxe Axial Fan operates at a quiet 37 decibels and takes just 15 Watts to power.
The low noise, low energy fan is an efficient way of keeping bathrooms clear of excess moisture and odours.
