Cabinets for #toiletthursday

in #hive-11410526 days ago (edited)

My sister-in-law recently moved into a new apartment. It is a charming place with a very unusual layout, but very interesting with a some great features. Among them are some awesome cabinets in the bathroom!

In our part of the world, it is common to have a small cabinet above the sink in the bathroom. They're usually not more than 12"–14" (30–35 cm) wide and about 18"–20" (45–50 cm) high and have a mirror on the front. Typically, larger cabinets are found only in the bathrooms of more luxurious homes. They're commonly called by the name "medicine cabinet" because of small shelves for storing medicines as well as razors, combs, and other personal grooming items.

In my sister-in-law's bathroom, however, there are two larger cabinets, framed in wood and built very nicely! Each has knobs on the doors, mirrored fronts, and a decorative panel of frosted glass in one section of each cabinet! One cabinet is centered over the sink, and the other over the toilet.

There is a mirror on the wall opposite the cabinets, so that is why you can see the cabinets, themselves, reflected in the mirrors on the front of the cabinets! That reminds me of something I liked to do as a child, to hold a small mirror up to larger mirror, facing each other, and see a long "corridor" of reflections appear! 😁

The decorative sections of frosted glass on the cabinets are lovely! They feature a simple floral design in the center. In the cabinet on the left, the door with the frosted glass is hinged on the bottom, so it opens downward instead of to the side.

The toilet and the sink are nothing fancy, just a typical design for this area. Beyond them, though, there is a clothes washer and dryer, then a closet for towels and linens, and a shower stall around the corner to the right.

So, thanks to my sister-in-law @doana for suggesting that I take these photos the last time I was at her apartment. She was amused by the idea of #toiletthursday envisioned by @brittandjosie 😁

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 24 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

You know? You two and toilet Thursday. Why in the world would I ever look at a post titled 'Toilet Thursday'?

Because of who writes it. That's why. It's like a slow motion train wreck, I just can't look away.

I think nobody that knows me outside of Hive would believe that I even peek, let alone respond.

I think I like the layout, but the one thing I would change is where the pulls and hinges are on the larger cabinet. If they hinged in the middle you could open them at a 45 degree angle and see your entire head.

It's an important consideration for a person with one eye :)

How cool. These look like custom made with the three flowers and that nice greenish color, and its makes a very lovely bathroom, and thank @doana for the suggestion. I love it , a great #toiletthursday addition thanks dear
