Many medicine cabinets have glass shelves that are smooth on one side and pebbled on the other. A recent thread on this forum asked which side of the glass should be up and there were divers opinions. Here is a poll to see what the majority feel is the correct way to orient the smooth and pebbled sides. This poll will close in 10 days.

Every cabinet I've seen with textured glass shelves had the smooth side up. I have a large display case for my pottery collection, and although the glass shelves are smooth on both sides, I can't imagine using a textured side up for the collection.

Didn't vote because my situation isn't in the list. I have no medicine cabinets in the way you describe.

Not only do I not have glass shelves in a medicine cabinet...I don't have a medicine cabinet. :) :D

I have wood shelves, but... why would they make a rough side unless it was supposed to be up? I mean, wouldn't they just have two smooth sides if a smooth side was supposed to be up?

The smooth side is a lot easier to clean. I think the rough side is just to make the shelf visible.

Mine are smooth on both sides.
