Bathrooms are often viewed as areas of budget compromise: Many homeowners would like a large bathroom, but agree to "make do" with a smaller plan. But with the proper use and design of cabinet space, even small bathrooms can provide ample storage. Small Bath Storage In a typical small bath, the size of the vanity is often limited to 36 inches or less, and the storage space available is minimal. In these situations, there are a number of methods that can be used to "squeeze" additional storage space out of the existing floor plan. The easiest and least expensive approach I've found to increase storage space is to replace the "standard" 32- inch-tall vanity cabinet with a 36-inch-tall cabinet.
