Metro Oversize Frameless Medicine Cabinet
We recessed this cabinet in wall which was quite some work (cutting stud/drywall, reframing wall, moving outlet and a switch, rewiring...) but very well worth it. We also cut hole in cabinet frame for outlet to be inside cabinet...very handy.
Overall, we are very happy with the quality of this cabinet. The soft close hinges work great and I like that once the glass shelves snapped in, they didn't move or rattle around.
***Note: The plastic brackets (that support shelves) would not fit into holes on side of cabinet at all until I gently ground down and softened the ridges on the plastic nipple part (that goes into hole) with pliers.
This cabinet has lots of space and is easy to keep clean.
If you're looking for a recessed cabinet, I highly recommend this one but installation should not be rushed.

I ordered a Nutone medicine cabinet. The first cabinet I received was not what I had ordered. I called customer service and explained the problem. Customer service was fantastic. Another cabinet was shipped. This time the correct cabinet was shipped but it was missing the door. Again customer service was great and the door and hardware were shipped.
I have 3 of these in my home and they are functional and beautiful. Now if Nutone could get its warehouse operation straightened out. I have nothing but good things to say about build.com and have ordered other items for my bathroom remodel project from build.com

Fragile and Difficult to Install
Looks nice, but beware the glass is very thin and very fragile. Also, the instructions are incomplete, making this rather difficult to install. Still can't figure out how to put the bumper guards in. They simply do not snap in. Also, called the company, DuoTone, and they were extremely rude and didn't want to take the time to help me.
