Medicine Cabinet

I need to replace an existing frameless 3 door beveled mirror medicine cabinet 48"wide x 30"high. It is surface mtd. and fits between two existing walls. I purchased a replacement at Lowe's but it was 122cm, which is a little longer than 48". I need one that is exactly 48" or a little smaller.
I am having a difficult time finding one and would like to know where I might try looking.
I live in the northwest Detroit, Michigan area.
Thanks
Ken

Re: Medicine Cabinet

Check the Yellow Pages under "Lighting Fixtures" and also under "Plumbing supplies" and "Bathroom Fixtures".

The dedicated stores will have several catalogs they can look thru until they find the dimension & style you need; also see if the big box stores have any catalogs you can look thru.

If you Google "Medicine Cabinets" you should get a list of sites that give price info as well as dimensions.

These items tend to be made by a handful of mfgs. that dominate the sales: Broan-NuTone, Bellacor, Afina, American Pride, Sears,

Avoid anything made of steel (stainless is ok), which will rust out when the paint is chipped or scratched, especially at the lower shelf.

Also try Bed Bath & Beyond.

Check out Epinions; enter "medicine cabinet" in their search box for dimension & price info & product reviews.
