In this article you will find all you need to confidently install a new, recessed, medicine cabinet. The finished project will leave you with a flush to the wall feature that is common in higher end houses, but often left out in track or development style homes.
While the tools required for this job are a bit more than a screwdriver and a few toggle bolts, the finished job will more than justify the rental or purchase of these tools.
- Level / Straight Edge
- Reciprocating Saw with 3-1/2” blade (can be rented)
- Screwdriver (electric preferred)
- Circular Saw (hand saw will suffice)
- 2×4 six to eight foot
- 1-1/2” Drywall Screws (10-20)
- 12p nails (6-8)
After deciding on the location for your new medicine cabinet, lay out your cut lines using the exact dimensions of your new cabinet. With your first horizontal line being at six foot (industry standard), lay out the rest below there.
