Wall Mounted Bathroom Cabinet – Wall-mounted bathroom cabinets add extra space in your bathroom for toiletries and other items. Clear the bathroom counter by storing toothpaste, topical ointments and hair products inside the cabinet. Most bathroom wall cabinets feature a mirror door for added functionality, but if you have a mirror you can find cabinets without them. Buying a bathroom wall cabinet in a home improvement store and installing oneself is a simple task, with an assistant and some tools. But before you go on, take this note, if you are installing a wall cabinet with a bathroom mirror; make sure that the height is suitable for the use of the mirror.
Use a stud locator to locate the studs on the wall near where you will hang the wall mounted bathroom cabinet. Draw a line on the wall with a pencil that indicates where each stud is. Draw the line beyond where it is intended to be installed in the cabinet, so that it can be seen during installation. For greater stability, install your bathroom wall cabinet in two uprights. Draw a sketch of where you want to install your cabinet. Check the dimensions of the cabinet and draw a rectangle the exact size of the back of the cabinet. Use a tape measure and level to ensure, at the level of straight lines of the correct length.
Screw a 1 by 3 inch support rail along the bottom edge of the box to increase stability. The top edge of the support rail must be installed along the bottom line you have drawn for the cabinet. Choose a support rail that is as long as the wall mounted bathroom cabinet is very wide. Use four 2-inch screws to secure it in place. Install some or all of the screws in the studs for best results. Lift the cabinet wall and place it against the wall at the top of the support rail, holding it in place. You need the help of at least one other person so one of you can hold it in place while the other screws to the wall. Install a 2-inch screw on one side of the rear wall of the cab near the top of the unit. Make sure the screw is going through the bolt you found earlier. Erase all visible pencil lines. Clean the inside of the cabinet (there will be wood chips from the screws) and place the shelves inside. Now it is ready to be filled.
