Affordable Medicine Cabinets for Every Style and Space

A good medicine cabinet is, undoubtedly, the unsung hero of any bathroom. Besides housing the obligatory mirror for endless hours of primping and polishing, it’s shouldered with a whole host of other jobs. These include expanding storage options vertically, beyond dark under-counter spaces and linen closets; handily storing the products you use most often; and keeping all those not-so-attractive bathroom things (think: over-gnawed toothbrushes, embarrassing medications, and ugly first aid products) well out of sight.

But finding a stylish—and affordable—medicine cabinet can be like searching for the proverbial needle in a cheap, builder-grade haystack. (And let’s face it, hidden electric outlets and built-in defoggers, while nice, aren’t exactly cost-effective.) So instead of busting your budget (and patience) to find the best workhorse for the most-used room in the house, consider these 11 cool medicine cabinets, all budget-friendly and designed for a variety of styles and spaces—from traditional to eclectic and everything in between.

For Those Short on Space

Cabidor Deluxe Mirror 


If your tiny bathroom more closely resembles a linen closet with virtually nowhere to stow day-to-day essentials, utilize wasted space with this six-foot back-of-door dynamo that attaches to any standard door’s hinges. Inside, it has the storage capacity of five standard medicine cabinets (seriously), and outside, there’s a full-length mirror. Customize its layout with six adjustable shelves and rods that keep tall items in place.

Urban Outfitters Plymouth Sliding Storage Mirror

A metal-framed mirror slides to the right (via metal arms on its top and bottom) to uncover this medicine cabinet’s natural, mango-wood frame, and two fixed shelves. The company keeps it cheap—and chic—by not providing wall-mounting directions (or hardware), so best to read up and get supplies before you hang.
