I thought it was strange that these type or recessed cabinets are not adopted in Australia, given the smaller spaces for things in the city areas. The selection for this is much greater in the US as its standard build practices there to include some kind of recesed mirror cabinet (usually called medicine cabinet).
You could import something yourself, there is a very wide range available in

Isn't the cabinet itself the same, but just installed differently?
I would get a (standard) cabinet, cut a hole in the wall, install it, add quads around perimeter.
IMO - a lot of work for just a little (75-100mm) extra space , so would only be of value if bathroom is very small.

we debated the same when designing out ensuite and ended up going for a custom made cabinet with glass front which is the same length as the double basin sink and goes up to the ceiling. DH cant stand all of my bathroom paraphenalia so we ended up going for a fairly large cabinet to store the girl stuff .
We thought about recessing the cupboard and although it can be done we were talked into the cabinet option.
Our kitchen manufacturer is designing and installing the bathroom cabinet - from memory it was an extra 1.4k.

I had the same sort of problem, so made our own cabinet with mirrored doors on the front.
Our unit is 1700 wide, 1000 tall with 3 full length polished edge mirrors. It makes the bathroom look so much bigger. Underneath the unit, I just made a tiled shelf to put the girlly stuff on and stepped out the bench the appropriate amount... My shelves are 135 deep, and exteremly useful...
I can forward through the design and cutting sheets so you can take it to a board cutter, and then put it together yourself...

Anyone else found a place to buy a recessed mirror/cabinet?? we need to source one so our builder can install it. i can't find anything much on the net. our vanities are 900mm so we hope to have a mirror/cabinet the same size.

I am having these in both my bathroom and ensuite. They are supplied by the builder, as an upgrade obviously. I looked into them and my local Reece was able to supply them. They did not have them on show, I had to ask about them. They were able to give me brochures and were available to order. For me, they were much cheaper through the builder.
