Q: After 30 years it’s time to replace my bathroom medicine cabinet. Since it’s my first time shopping for a medicine cabinet in decades, what modern features can I look for to be up to date on the latest technology? — Steve, Iowa

A: I work with new bathroom products, and the cool thing I’ve noticed is today’s medicine cabinets are quickly evolving into bathroom command centers.

This is a good thing and possible because of design breakthroughs in medicine cabinet storage, lighting and smart technology.

Look for a cabinet with clever storage options like fold-out magnifying mirrors, charging stations and custom shelving options. Pivoting mirror doors with built-in lighting is another great feature.

Finally, smart technology options can include voice-activation light dimming and virtual assistance, so you can prepare yourself for the weather.
