    I love how the recessed med cabinet looks like a typical wall hung mirror. It's flush with the drywall.

    We used 4 Euro Style cabinet hinges on the MDF Medex slab then glued the mirror on.

    This inexpensive push-to-open touch latch works very well.

    JR Products Touch latch. I also really like the outlet inside the med cabinet to hide an electric toothbrush.

My company just completed this really fun 1960's remodel with Architect Webber + Studios and Interior Designer Jennifer Greer Hartman of Greer Interior Design.

The interior of the medicine cabinet was made from pre-finished birch plywood.  We used a JR Products Touch latch you can find on Amazon for about $5.  The painted door to the cabinet is made from Medex which is a dense/waterproof version of MDF.  It takes paint well and won't absorb moisture like typical MDF.  We used four Blum hinges with 110 opening to give a wider opening.

In short, none of these details are super tricky but they require a good team of craftsman to ensure this simple detail doesn't look sloppy when it's completed.
