If you’ve ever renovated a bathroom, you undoubtedly know that medicine cabinets—with a few exceptions—inherently suck. People with lots of money have brands such as Robern, WetStyle, Villeroy & Boch, Laufen, and Duravit, but if you don’t you’re stuck with whatever is at The Home Depot or Lowe’s.
That’s why I like this new line from Think Fabricate, a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based design firm that dabbles in architecture and product design. The firm has expanded its Wall*nuts collection to include medicine cabinets. Available in small and extra-large sizes, it has a narrow side door that provides easy access to everyday items, door panels that are inset with mirrors on both sides, and a mirrored interior. The small unit measures 30 inches tall, 24 inches wide, and 5 inches deep, while the XL version is 72 inches wide. Pieces are available in custom sizes and materials, including teak. Starting at $800, the cabinets aren’t exactly cheap, but they’re also not outrageous. Think (pun intended) of it as an investment.
