Many homes have a medicine cabinet in the bathroom, especially in the main bathrooms attached to the bedroom area of the house. Homes that were built before the last decade or so were all built with a medicine cabinet in the bathroom. A medicine cabinet is a great space saver for a bathroom. They are also very handy to have all of your intimate articles easily accessible yet out of the reach of young children. If necessary, you can also lock a medicine cabinet to keep little hands from getting into potentially dangerous medicines.
Medicine cabinets are generally rectangular in shape, due to the need for an easily moveable door. Although there are many decorative medicine cabinets that have more than one door, and engraving or framing around the mirrored door.
