These Small Bathroom Vanities Make a Big Impact

A small bathroom is undoubtedly a design challenge. You're trying to maximize every square inch without overwhelming the space, and you want it to be functional even though you don't have a lot of real estate. So, what's a small home dweller to do? Small bathroom vanities are the answer.

When shopping for the perfect match, aim for a traditional size of 18 or 24 inches. We advise staying under 31 inches — anything above that will likely be too large for your petite bath. Often filled with handy storage and containing a sink, we recommend that you look for a diminutive design that will not only be the right size, but a style match, too. There are tons of options out there ranging from Scandinavian, midcentury, vintage, bohemian, and more.

So whether you have a tiny house, bungalow, or apartment, these small bathroom vanities will be an ideal match for your space.
