Recessed bathroom cabinets can create an extremely efficient and attractive storage space in your bathroom, utilizing the otherwise unused space in the bathroom wall to store bathroom accessories and other essentials.

If you're contemplating installing recessed bathroom cabinets or replacing an existing recessed cabinet with a new design, you'll first want to ensure that your bath space can accommodate a recessed cabinet. Measure between the studs on the wall the cabinet will be placed to make sure you have enough space to install the cabinet, and also ensure there isn't any essential wiring or plumbing blocking the way. Once you're clear of any obstacles, you're ready to install the cabinet—but first, you'll have to choose a cabinet style.

Recessed bathroom cabinets are available in a wide range of styles to match just about any bathroom design. In general, these cabinets adhere to the overall style of the bathroom, although it's not uncommon for them to act as focal points that diverge a bit from the core design to provide some visual interest.
