How to Hang a Mirrored Medicine Cabinet
You've made the decision to furnish your bathroom with a mirrored medicine cabinet. Great choice. It's a simple upgrade that can make a significant impact. Those mirrored doors will open up your space and make it seem bright and airy. But before you start daydreaming about your new spa-like oasis, you've got to actually hang the thing. No need to fear—Wellfor has you covered. Installing a mirrored bathroom medicine cabinet is doable as a DIY project, even if you're not the handiest person. Grab your tools, crank up some tunes, and follow along - in just a few hours, you'll have a stylish new storage spot and be well on your way to an envy-inducing bathroom.
Preparing to Install Your Mirrored Bathroom Medicine Cabinet
Gathering Your Supplies
Before you get started, you'll want to gather a few essential tools. Pick up:
  • A stud finder to locate studs in the wall. You'll want to secure the cabinet to studs for maximum stability.
  • A level to make sure your cabinet will be evenly mounted.
  • A drill/driver, wall anchors, and mounting screws are designed for hanging heavy objects.
  • A tape measure, pencil, and painter's tape. The tape will help you mark the cabinet's location on the wall.
  • Safety glasses and dust mask. Better safe than sorry!
Once your supplies are handy, you can determine the best spot for your new mirrored medicine cabinet.
Choosing an Installation Location
Consider the location carefully. Look for a spot on your bathroom wall with ample space on either side of the cabinet. Make sure there are studs available to secure the cabinet. Hold the cabinet to a few different wall areas to determine the best fit based on your space and storage needs.
When you've found the perfect spot, use your tape measure to ensure enough clearance on all sides for the cabinet to open fully.
Then, use your pencil and painter's tape to mark the outer edges of where you want to mount the cabinet. Time to grab your drill and get ready to hang your new mirrored medicine cabinet!

Mounting Your Mirrored Bathroom Medicine Cabinet on the Wall
Once you have your mirrored medicine cabinet picked out, it's time to mount that baby on the wall.
Marking and Drilling the Holes
When you've found the perfect spot, use a level to ensure it will be even. Then, mark pilot holes for the screws or bolts. You'll want to mark the studs or use wall anchors rated for the weight of your cabinet. Drill guide holes into the marks.
Securing the Cabinet
With a helper, lift the cabinet and line up the holes with the ones you drilled. Drive the screws into the studs or bolts into the wall anchors to mount the cabinet. Check that it's level and secure before loading it up.
Once hung, you can neatly store all your bathroom essentials behind the mirrored door. No more clutter on your counter or vanity! With some TLC, your new mirrored medicine cabinet will serve you well for years and make your daily routine a little more organized.
Loading the Mirrored Cabinet and Finishing Touches
Now it's time to load up your new mirrored medicine cabinet and put on the finishing touches.
Loading the Cabinet
Carefully place your items into the cabinet, starting with things you use most frequently. Group similar items together, like toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash and floss, in one area and skin care products in another. Ensure not to overload the shelves, which could cause them to sag over time.
As you place items in the cabinet, consider your daily routine and how you can organize them in a logical order. Keep things like daily medications, makeup, hair products and tools within easy reach. Store less frequently used items like backup toiletries or medical supplies on higher shelves.
Consider using matching or coordinated containers, trays, drawer dividers or organizers to keep everything neat. This makes items simple to spot and allows for a smooth look in your cabinet. Small baskets are great for corralling loose items like cotton balls, q-tips, makeup sponges or hair ties.
Finishing Touches
Once loaded, review how everything looks in your new mirrored medicine cabinet. Make any final tweaks to the organization or spacing to ensure it's as functional and clutter-free as possible.
Add a slight decorative touch like a vase of fresh flowers, reed diffuser or candle on one of the cabinet shelves. This gives your space a spa-like feel and a pop of colour. Just be careful with an open flame or anything flammable inside the cabinet.
Close the cabinet doors, and you're done - now enjoy your newly organized storage space! Refer to the loading tips anytime you need to make changes or additions to keep your cabinet looking neat and orderly.
