Benefits of Installing a Shaving Cabinet

Considering a shaving cabinet for your new bathroom?

In this article, we focus on the benefits of installing a shaving cabinet in your new bathroom renovation over a standard mirror and how the team at Builders Discount Warehouse can help you choose the right product for your design.

Advantages of Shaving Cabinets in Bathrooms

So you’re designing your bathroom, but don’t know whether to choose a standard bathroom mirror or a mirrored shaving cabinet. In this section, we’ll discuss some of the main reasons why a shaving cabinet can be a great choice.

Functionality & Form

While your typical bathroom mirror looks great, it doesn’t necessarily do much beyond showing you your reflection. Shaving cabinets, on the other hand, give you the sleek look you are after with the added advantage of increased storage.


Speaking of storage, that’s one of the major benefits of choosing a shaving cabinet. Storage is always at a premium and having a shaving cabinet in your bathroom is a great way to make use of the space.

Space Saving

Sometimes you just don’t have room for – or like the look of – additional cabinetry in your bathroom alongside your mirror.

Maybe there are certain items you’d rather keep hidden from view, or you simply want to avoid the clutter of a vanity crowded in makeup, hair gel and toothpaste.

By mounting a shaving cabinet on that blank wall you’ve got a space saving solution everyone can get behind (or in front of!).

Variety of Shapes & Styles

You’d be forgiven for thinking that shaving cabinets are only available in one shape, style or size. In truth, there are several options you can choose from to fit almost any space or aesthetic.

Versatile Installation

When you choose to install a shaving cabinet in your bathroom, there isn’t only one way you can go about it.

Shaving cabinets have the versatility of being able to be hung directly on your wall, completely recessed into your wall or even semi-recessed to make for an even better use of space.

Improved Lighting

Lighting is so important in a bathroom, especially face-level or face-framing lighting for when you’re getting ready to go out. A number of shaving cabinets in our range come with lighting – or the ability to easily install lighting strips – which is a great addition to your bathroom.
