Recessed cabinets: functional and fashionable
Recessed cabinets are practical for more than just bathroom medicine cabinets these days; they also work well in craft rooms, garages and offices. When you want a clean look, but need additional shelf space, these cabinets offer a solution. Sometimes called concealed cabinets, they come in a wide range of colors, styles and materials, including woods, metals and plastics. Some decorative cabinet fronts allow you to insert photos or prints. Prices depend on the material and size; you can find simple mirrored cabinets for less than $50 at home improvement stores, while larger, more detailed ones are available online for a few hundred dollars.
Careful planning is recommended before installing these cabinets because the process involves cutting into walls. Make sure you are comfortable with the project if you plan to undertake it yourself. Before beginning, find out if the wall where you wish to put the cabinet is load-bearing, and seek advice if you have any questions on installation.
