The medicine cabinet should be a really common feature in Brazil, but as PPAULO mentioned most are plastic made. (can I say plastic made or made of plastic?)
I'd suggest "made of plastic" or "plastic", Fran.
Now for bathrooms in Brazil it certainly is a dillema; most are just too small and others are too big, which is certainly uncommon, and then they have maybe a "ralo" (drain) in the center of the bath instead of right underneath the shower head.
Brazilian bathrooms can be quite small. The largest happened to be in the smallest house I lived in. Go figure.
As for the slippery floors most people in Brazil shower wearing "Havaianas" - flip-flops.
I started doing the same thing.
As for myself I don't mind the floor and the drain BUT WHAT I DO MIND is getting an electric shock everytime I shower because the tap in the pumbling system gets connected with the electric shower head.
What a bummer!
You can say that again! I never had that problem, but I was always nervous about turning on the electric hot water heater device in the shower. In Costa Rica years ago I stayed for several weeks in a very simple apartment with an open breaker switch (like the one for the electric chair in prisons) INSIDE the shower. Holy cow... I can't believe they would permit such a dangerous thing in a home.
Now the rubber flip-flop really comes in hand because one can manage to shut the water off with the flip-flop in the hand to avoid the electric shock ; )
You're tougher than I am. Sure you're not Paraibana? You know,"mulher macho, sim senhor".
