Cabinet Buying Guide

Not only are cabinets the perfect storage solution for your bathroom, but the beautiful designs we have at Pebble Grey will also stylishly complete your space.

In fact, our collection is so wide ranging that you may struggle to pick your favourite! To be of some help, we have constructed this guide to help you on the path to purchasing your dream cabinet.

 

01. Illuminated

Following in the footsteps of our beloved mirror range, many of our cabinets include various lighting options to add a touch of luxury to a convenient and stylish product.

Illuminated – Opting for an illuminated cabinet allows you to get more functionality out of our products, providing a light that effortlessly brightens your space in a stylish way.

Diffused – Atmospheric lighting can be easily created through our diffused cabinets as their lights are less harsh after being transmitted through frosted glass panels. These panels have also been used to create attractive and unique designs that set Pebble Grey cabinets apart from all others.

LED Dot – Rather than the longer LEDs typically seen on our mirrors and cabinets, the LED dot cabinets are decorated with dozens of tiny LEDs, creating a lovely sparkling lighting effect.

Overhead Lights – Rather than being fitted into the surface, some of our cabinets come with more classic overhead lights that project light downwards rather than forwards. Still creating an impact, these style mirrors look great in traditional bathrooms.

Non-Illuminated – If you just want a stylish mirrored cabinet without the fuss of lights, we have the perfect selection for you! Our non-illuminated cabinets have had just as much thought put into their design, and will elegantly finish off your bathroom.

02. Extra Features

As well as lighting, many of our cabinets come with extra features that you may not expect. This is because we always like to go the extra mile at Pebble Grey to make sure our products are the best! Read on to see what extras you could discover within your new cabinet.

Demister – Finally providing a quick solution to a steamed over mirror, the warm demister pads found in many of our cabinets will gently but efficiently rid your cabinet of mist so that it is back in use just moments after showering. We are proud to save a few minutes of your morning through this feature, because we know each one is precious.

Shaver Socket – You’ll never struggle to find an outlet for your razor again after adding one of our shaver cabinets to your bathroom. Each of these cabinets comes readily installed with a shaver socket, making it a perfectly convenient accompaniment to a family bathroom.

Bluetooth Audio – There’s a song for every occasion – whether it be an upbeat hit to get you ready for the day ahead, or a soothing melody that will help you unwind in the evening. Whatever genre you opt for, music truly adds to your bathroom experience, which is why we offer a range of Bluetooth audio cabinets that allow you to safely play your favourite songs without even having to leave the tub!

Motion Sensor – No matter how beautiful your bathroom, it is inevitable that your surfaces will become a little germy. It is for this reason that we have decided to equip our cabinets with infra-red sensors, allowing you to access all of your extra features without having to make contact with the surface of your piece. This forward-thinking piece of technology means you will never have to implicate your hygiene with a Pebble Grey cabinet.

Soft-Close Doors – Perfect for family homes, cabinets with soft-close doors are provided with an extra element of protection as there is no risk of slams and bangs.

 

03. Shelves

With cabinets that look as good as ours, you may forget that their primary purpose is to store your toiletries. The amount of space and number of shelves provided is therefore an important consideration when it comes to picking a product. If you live alone, you may opt for a smaller cabinet with one or two thin shelves, whereas a family bathroom may require a lot more space. Make sure to read all product descriptions and look at the provided photos closely to ensure that your chosen cabinet will meet your needs.

04. Power

Most of our cabinets are packed with electrical features, and therefore require a power source. A Pebble Grey cabinet will be powered either by battery or your main power supply, so make sure you know which your chosen product requires for a smooth installation.

Mains – Most of our cabinets need to be wired to your main supply, meaning that you will probably require the help of an electrician. Our cabinets require a typical 240V in order to perform to the best of their ability, so please check that your supply can provide this to avoid disappointment.

Battery – If you want to avoid the process of wiring your product to your mains supply, your other option is a battery operated cabinet. These all require 8xAA batteries, but eliminate the need to hire an electrician so the entire installation can be completed quickly and by yourself.

 

05. Aftercare

Our cabinets come with a guarantee of up to 5 years, and, with a little help, can look as good as new far after this period has expired.

Cleaning a mirror can feel like you’re stuck in a never-ending cycle; wiping away existing streaks leaves twice as many in their place! However, if you swap your sponge or cloth for a wad of newspaper, you’ll find that you’re finally leaving a streak-free surface behind.

For even better results, use natural cleaning agents such as water and vinegar rather than harsh chemicals. Strong cleaning products, especially those made from ammonia, will damage your mirror by taking off the top layer and revealing dark marks.

We put a lot of love into the creation of our cabinets, and we hope you’ll love them enough too to keep them shining bright for years to come.
