How The DIY Works Team Tests & Rates Bathroom Cabinets

Bathroom mirror cabinets are a great addition to any bathroom and there is a selection of designs that you can choose from.

Our favourite type to install is bathroom mirror cabinets with lights because they have the ability to modernise any bathroom. Many also come with additional features such as a demister pad and shaver socket too. Two of the most recent LED bathroom mirror cabinets we installed in our Airbnb properties can be seen in the photos below.

To keep up our commitment to reviewing and testing the latest bathroom mirror cabinets, we are continually testing out the latest offerings from top brands in the UK. As we own multiple Airbnb and rental properties, it enables us to experience the full unboxing, assembly and installation of the units.

As well as our testing and experience of installing multiple bathroom mirror cabinets, we also based our recommendations on the latest research and several factors. Some of the factors we considered included the build quality, design, LED illumination, additional features (i.e. demister and sockets), ease of assembly, warranty and value.

1. Best Quality: Neue Design LED Bathroom Mirror Cabinet

(How We Review →)

Neue Design is the market leader when it comes to LED mirrored cabinets and for good reason. They offer a wide selection of cabinets where each is built to the highest of standards and comes with a 5-year guarantee.

In terms of sizing, this particular model is available in three different sizes that include 60 x 65, 65 x 80 or 70 x 50 cm with each size having a depth of 16 cm.

Pros
  • Three mirrors (front, back and internal)
  • Adjustable frosted shelves
  • Recharging socket for toothbrushes or shavers
  • Stylish brushed aluminium frame
  • Concealed demister
  • Infrared motion sensor for hands free operation
  • Backed by a 5 year guarantee
  • Certified to British Standards (CE and RoHS)
Cons
  • Most expensive within our roundup

Although expensive, the Neue Design is the ultimate LED bathroom mirror cabinet that’s built without compromise. Additional features such as an internal light, cushioned door stoppers, brushed aluminium frame and more add to the superior quality of the cabinet and it certainly won’t disappoint.

As mentioned above, Neue Design offers numerous cabinets and this is their mid-range cabinet. If you have a larger budget available, alternative models include Bluetooth speakers, additional lighting and so much more.

2. Best All-Rounder: Pebble Grey Hollis Illuminated Mirror Cabinet

(How We Review →)

Another popular LED bathroom mirror cabinet that comes with a premium price tag is the Pebble Grey Hollis. It’s a British-designed, RoHS-compliant cabinet that provides everything you could ever want from mirrored cabinets.

The brand also offers three alternative models known as the Hadley, Pyrus or Rowan cabinets. However, the Hollis model is the one to go for as it offers additional functionality and storage space.

Pros
  • IP44 waterproof rated
  • Soft closing doors
  • Demister pad to reduce fogging
  • Desirable shaver socket
  • Two internal glass shelves
  • Double sided mirrored door
  • Smart activation sensor
  • CE and RoHS certified
Cons
  • Relatively expensive when compared to the alternatives

To conclude, the Pebble Grey Hollis is an excellent all-round bathroom mirror cabinet that ticks all the boxes. It also has the bonus of being cheaper than the Neue Design alternative and it provides a high-quality look and feel that compliments any bathroom or en-suite.

3. Best Value: ELEGANT Bathroom Sliding Mirror Cabinet

(How We Review →)

Elegant is a brand that produces a wide range of bathroom products and they have a great reputation for most of their offerings. Their LED bathroom mirror cabinet is a great example of that reputation and it’s a high-quality option that uses a sliding mirrored door for accessing the two internal shelves inside of the cabinet.

The unique sliding door is a great alternative to the standard hinged opening but it does limit the cabinet to where it can be placed on the wall. For example, it cannot be placed upon a corner as the door won’t be able to open fully.

Pros
  • Adjustable glass shelves
  • Sliding door mechanism
  • Infrared sensor for activating the demister or lights
  • High quality stainless steel frame
  • Slow closing hinges
  • IP44 waterproof rating
Cons
  • Sliding mechanism requires adequate space to open

Overall, the Elegant sliding mirror cabinet is an attractive, convenient and practical option that offers great value for the money. The only drawback is that it requires careful consideration of the placement on the wall due to the sliding mechanism, which will require space to open correctly.

4. Best Value Runner-Up: Quavikey® Bathroom Mirror Cabinet With Lights

(How We Review →)

Another bathroom mirror cabinet with lights that’s available at a relatively affordable price is by the Quavikey brand. However, unlike the ELEGANT alternative above, this cabinet also features a desirable shaver socket.

In terms of its size, the cabinet is 500 x 700 mm and features two adjustable slideway shelf panels inside. However, if you require a larger alternative, the brand offers a range of other sizes to best suit your requirements.

Pros
  • Constructed of an aluminium alloy
  • Cushioned hinges that help to protect and reduce the noise of the cabinet shutting
  • Large demister pad that slowly heats the mirror's surface to prevent it from misting over
  • Dual shaver sockets
  • Backed by a one year warranty
Cons
  • During testing, we had to adjust the hinges quite a lot to make the cabinet door sit perfectly

To conclude, the Quavikey bathroom mirror cabinets are a high-quality yet affordable option that’s packed full of features. We particularly liked the extra large hidden demister pad and the aluminium construction.

During a discussion in the DIY Works office, we couldn’t decide between this and the ELEGANT alternative in terms of which was best. However, both offer great value for the money and certainly won’t disappoint.

5. Best All-Rounder: Bath Vida Priano Bathroom Cabinet

(How We Review →)

If you would prefer to have a standard mirrored cabinet in your bathroom, the Bath Vida Priano is a great option to consider. It’s available with single or dual doors and is constructed of sturdy MDF wood that can be wiped clean.

Although the cabinet is finished in a smooth white out of the box, it can be easily painted with a cupboard paint to best suit your requirements. We did exactly this as we wanted it to match the décor of a rental properties bathroom.

Pros
  • Durable MDF construction that can be painted if required
  • Smooth white finish
  • Two inner shelves
  • High quality hardware and handles
  • Choice of configuration to choose from
Cons
  • Requires assembly out of the box

To conclude, the Bath Vida Priano is an excellent bathroom mirror cabinet for those that don’t require LED lighting. It isn’t the cheapest on the market but it’s built to last with a high-quality look and feel.

6. Best For Storage: House & Homestyle Bathroom Cabinet

(How We Review →)

Another bathroom mirror cabinet that doesn’t include any illumination is by the House & Homestyle brand. It’s a single-door cabinet that’s been designed to maximize storage space for all your bathroom products.

Pros
  • Offers plenty of storage space with four inner shelves
  • We were able to install it relatively easy during our testing
  • Finished in a desirable grey
  • Magnetic door closing
Cons
  • Although not a major issue, it did require assembly out of the box

Overall, the House & Homestyle cabinet is a well-made option that’s ideal for large families requiring as much storage space as possible. The large size and multiple shelves are hard to find but this cabinet is the answer and it won’t disappoint.

Conclusion

Bathroom mirror cabinets have come a long way over the last few years and are now offered as mains-powered options with multiple LEDs. Although expensive, they are a great addition to any bathroom and are packed full of features such as shaver sockets, infrared sensors, demisting pads and so much more. All of our recommendations within this article are suitable for every budget and include both mains powered and standard mirror cabinets.
