got mine from trago
i know they are normally naff,but the cabinet i bought was £350 on the designer websites,and only £125 at trago
their designer range is worth a look if you have one nearby

Id have a look in sainsburys as ive seen some nice mirrored ones there for £25 or so

cuz they're nice...............

Yep, just looked at IKEA, very basic stuff. I splashed out and got travertine tiles (actually saved £200 by shopping around) and a nice bathroom from Bathstore. So a nice cabinet is the last thing Im looking for but dont want to spend more than £100.

Try argos?

I must be fussy then.
Wouldnt have thought of IKEA or Argos. Had a look but haven't seen anything that does it for me. Tell you what is really stupid though. The last time I changed my bathroom I didnt put up a mirror and at my mums house I havent put up one for her either. New BF came round (well ex now) and joked about me obviously being a vampire lol. I really really need to find something this time. I got used to it before so I really better get one this time.

I dont have a mirror in my bathroom and everyone thinks thats strange. I dont know how to drill into tiles without making a mess so i just never got around to it.

Stick a bit of sellotape on the tile which you drill into (i.e. drill into sellotape) and use a masonry bit (without the hammer function). Use a low speed and once it goes through the glaze it should be straightforward. :thumbsup:

I just bought a set of tile drill bits, they look like little spears :lol: & you don't need to put tape on the tile or anything. They go through with no trouble at all

Use Masking tape rather than sellotape to stop the drillbit slipping.

aww thanks for the tips guys
I'll still be scared to do it lol

I went to my local glaziers and got them to cover one (half) wall in mirror for me, they delivered it and stuck it to the wall with super duper stuff and it only cost about £70. I've also got 3 shelves with some of the ducks shown in your avatar bella!

Going back to the original post, my cabinet was fairly expensive but I figure i'm going to have it a long time, its space saving as it sits in a corner and I can fit loads in it.
