Signature Hardware Recalls 36" Medicine Cabinets
While many Americans are suffering through a historic economic crisis, those who have not taken a financial hit are focused on ways to make an extended period of isolation more comfortable. For some this involved full remodels of their kitchen or home office; for others, the projects were more more DIY in nature.

Modern Medicine Cabinet

This Vichy Cabinet from the NAVA collection by Bissonnet has retractable  side shelves with chrome rails that slide behind the mirror to keep grooming products close at hand.

The cabinet is 6.5″ deep and extends 8.7″ from each side. Bissonnet offers a companion vanity as well.

I really like that the mirror is one large uninterrupted piece of glass.

Luxury Medicine Cabinets

For years we’ve all been told not to keep medicines in the bathroom because the heat and moisture may destroy them.  Now, homeowners have a way to break the old rules.

Biszet, a German manufacturer of quality medicine cabinets, worked with pharmacists and dermatologists to create a medicine cabinet with three temperature zones to provide correct storage for creams, lotions  and medicines.

The next zone is for luxury cosmetics that contain natural ingredients like avocado oil, papaya mouse or pure aloe vera which can quickly loose their effectiveness in warm moist environments where bacteria can breed. These products are best kept at 8-10 ° Celsius (46.4-50°F)

The third zone, 12° Celsius (53.6°F),  is for products with collagen  

Biszet cabinets are made of stainless steel and glazed glass and come with a lock to keep medications secure. A free-standing model is also available.

Another medicine cabinet with cold storage will be available soon from Robern.  It’s not surprising that this leader in bathroom storage solutions should add a refrigerated compartment to it’s already impressive line-up of features such as interior outlets, door defoggers and night lights.

Half of the 8-inch deep, 20-by-30-inch cabinet will be dedicated to cold storage at 42-50°F . Just like the Biszet cabinet, it will allow users to extend the life of high-end cosmetics, maintain the quality of health and wellness products or simply keep beverages chilled and handy. The other half is for toiletries that do not require refrigeration, like toothbrushes, soaps or towels.

The Robern cabinet can be installed semi-recessed or surface mounted. It has interior shelves to maximize storage and a handsome mirrored front door with a minimalist style that enables it to complement the other design elements of the vanity or room.
