A cabinet is usually a round-shaped unit with several drawers and/or doors for storage. Some cabinets are built into a wall or stand on their own, while others are attached directly to the wall and used as medicine cabinets. Cabinet furniture comes in many different shapes, sizes, and prices.
Cabinet construction is normally done with solid wood, with a veneer layer below it on top of which is applied a varnish. Cabinet doors are also made out of solid wood and may be either solid or laminated.
Cabinets can either be open or closed. Many times, these are single and double-sided. Single-side cabinets have only one drawer. Double-sided cabinets have two or more drawers on each side. A double-side cabinet can either be fitted into the wall behind the medicine cabinet or be mounted directly onto the wall.
In a medicine cabinet, the cabinet must have enough room for all the medicines to be stored, plus an area to keep a toothbrush and other dental supplies. Most cabinets are fitted with a shelf on top to accommodate the medicines; however, the actual shelf must be adjustable according to the size of the medicine cabinet itself.
Medicine cabinets are usually placed near a sink, which is to be located in front of the medicine cabinet. This will help prevent the sink from being too high or too low to the cabinet door. The sink should also be big enough to house all the required supplies for the medicine cabinet, including the medicines and the utensils that are required to prepare the medicine.
There are many varieties of cabinet designs and materials available, depending upon the need for the cabinet. Some cabinets are designed with the medicine cabinet attached directly to the wall, while others may have separate walls. Some cabinets may be fitted with shelves on both the top and bottom of the medicine cabinet, with the bottom shelf being fitted with shelves for the tools required to use the cabinet.
Cabinets come in many different sizes. The standard cabinets usually have four drawers and may include a mirror above the countertop. Others, called “triple-wide” cabinets, have ten drawers and a mirror on the bottom.
Medicines cabinets should always be kept clean and tidy. Cleaning the medicine cabinet should be part of the routine maintenance program of the medicine cabinet.
You must not use water to wipe out the surfaces of the medicine cabinet. Instead, use soft cotton cloths or rags. Use the proper cleaning chemicals to clean out the surface of the medicine cabinet. Never use ammonia-based cleaners because they may damage the wooden surface of the cabinet and cause it to warp.
You may also want to polish the wood on the sides of the medicine cabinet. If you are cleaning it with ammonia-based cleaners, be sure not to use any type of abrasive cleaner. When polishing, make sure to work slowly and apply more pressure than necessary.
You may also want to use compressed air to blow out any spills. that occur between your fingers when you are dusting or scrubbing.
After a day’s use, you should vacuum the surface of the medicine cabinet using a good quality polish. Once vacuuming, you should also apply an oil-based or wax-based polish to keep the surface smooth.
If you are storing medicines that are fragile, such as those that contain alcohol, use glass jars or glass bottles to store them in. Keep them away from other types of glass. This will ensure that no air-borne particles enter your cabinets.
If you are storing wood, do not put them in the cabinet directly. Place them on the inside of a wooden box. The reason is that wood absorbs heat and can warp if the box is directly against the wood.
Wood cabinets need to be maintained by oiling them occasionally to keep them clean and dry. Regular oiling is essential to the life of a wood cabinet. The manufacturer recommends oiling the wood surface at least once every year, preferably twice. If you don’t like the taste of the oil, use another type of wood.
Wood cabinets need to be maintained by oiling to prevent them from warping. and breaking. To do this, simply spray the oil on the surface before each use, wiping it off afterward.
