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.

With its forest green hue tinged with gray, this small bathroom vanity will add an instant pop of color to your space. And, we love the cabinet doors and open cubby for storage.

This is a unique twist on classic small bathroom vanities. Outfitted to look like a ladder, the top rung acts as a towel rack while the lower level is ideal for stashing away pampering essentials.
