“What is a Robert medicine cabinet?” is not a question I thought I’d ever ask, mainly because, until recently, I had no idea what one was. But, since I decided to renovate the bathroom in my pre-war co-op apartment in New York, I’ve learned many new things. I never would have guessed that picking out, ordering, and coordinating the delivery of all the fixtures and supplies would be so time-consuming and stressful.
I hired a company that provides a “full service” renovation package which includes interior design and advice on material and component selection. My project manager took me to a beautiful plumbing fixture showroom. I found lots of wonderful things, including a $770 medicine cabinet by a brand called Robern. Not having ever purchased a medicine cabinet before, I’d never heard of Robern and I was quite surprised at the price tag (part of this is that I have expensive taste, something I’ve often had to reign in).
