Wall Mounted Bathroom Cabinet adds extra space to your bathroom for toiletries and other items. Clear away the bathroom counter by storing toothpaste, topical ointments. Most bathroom wall cabinets have a mirrored door for enhanced functionality, but if you have a mirror you will find lockers without them. Buying a bathroom wall cabinet from a home improvement store and installing it yourself is an easy task with a helper and some tools.
Use a slider detector to locate wall brackets nearby where you plan to hang the cabinet. Draw the line past where you intend to install the cabinet so that you can see it during installation. For increased stability, install your bathroom wall cabinet in two studs. Draw a sketch of where you want your cabinet installed. We refer to cabinet dimensions and draw a rectangle the exact size of the back of the cabinet. Use a tape measure and level to ensure straight, level lines of the right length.
Screw a 1-by-3-inch support rail along the lower edge of the cabinet to increase stability. Choose a support rail that is as long as the wall-mounted cabinet is wide. Use the four 2-inch screws to secure it in place. For best results, install some or all of the screws in the studs. Lift the wall cabinet and place it against the wall on top of the support rail, keeping it in place. Install a 2-inch screw on one side of the rear wall of the cabinet near the top of the unit. Make sure the screw goes through the stud you found earlier. Different 2-inch screw through the rear wall of the cabinet on the other side, hit another stud.
