Installing a Cabinet in Toilet Room


I want to install a cabinet in my toilet room above my toilet.
It looks as though the wall is 33 3/4" wide.

If I install a cabinet that is 33 1/2" in there, is that ok?

Can I just fill up the remaining small space on both sides with caulk or something?

thank you

Are you talking about something that recesses into the wall cavity between the studs? Wall studs are typically spaced 16 and 24 inch on center.

If it is not recessed you shouldn't need to caulk it. If you want it to look finished though you could use quarter round.

As long as the cabinet doesn't have hinged doors, you are ok. Use a molding to cover the gaps as suggested.

Usually it's referred to as quarter round. it you want something larger then it would be molding.
