Think Twice Before Removing Your Medicine Cabinets

I would say that more than half of the people that I give bathroom remodeling estimates to want to remove their medicine cabinet. I can usually talk them out of it, but some of them are so dead set in their way of thinking, that I can't do anything about it.

If you really want to remove your bathroom medicine cabinet, knock yourself out. If you have to do it, for whatever reason, you don't need to justify it to your bathroom remodeling contractor. However, I would like you to think about the items that you currently have inside of your medicine cabinet.

Look at these items and try to figure out where you're going to place them, once you remove your medicine cabinet. This is usually where I change people's minds, who haven't thought twice about removing them. Most people don't think about storage problems in bathrooms until the bathroom has been remodeled and by then it's usually too late.

Just because you know someone who doesn't have a medicine cabinet and tells you how wonderful it is not to have one, doesn't mean that you don't need one. Bathroom storage creates big problems for remodeling contractors who understand the whole process.

If your bathroom remodeling contractor makes a suggestion like this to you, I would like you to at least think twice about it. Experienced bathroom remodeling contractors usually have pretty good ideas and I suggest that you listen to them.
