The beauty of a corner bathroom cabinet is not only that it offers extra storage possibilities by taking advantage of unused space, but it can also become a nice focal point. Something with open shelving means easy access to often-used items or a place to display plants or art; a floating cabinet can be great for smaller spaces; and if you're tall, there are beautiful styles available for you, too. (Just remember to anchor the cabinet to the wall for safety!) While colors might be limited for the current crop of corner cabinets, you can easily give them some additional personality with a little paint, washi tape, or cool hardware. Ready to start shopping? Here are 11 designs worth considering.

1. Belham Living Longbourn Corner Linen Cabinet, $213.75

This tall corner bathroom cabinet is a storage win. With three open shelves and two doors, you have the flexibility to display or hide items, showcasing whatever your heart desires. Plus, it's available in an espresso finish too, so you can choose to keep things light and bright or add a little warmth.

2. Birch Lane Sumter Cabinet, $185.99

For bathrooms with lower or slanted ceilings, this corner cabinet with a glass door does the trick, and it's at the perfect level if you have to reach for items when you're soaking in the tub. And thanks to decorative elements, such as sculpted legs and trim, this design is instantly elevated from basic to beautiful.

3. Home Decorators Collection Hampton Harbor Corner Linen Storage Cabinet, $279

A corner bathroom cabinet with drawers and open and closed shelving? Jackpot. Also available in white and a sequoia wood finish, this tall glass of water would be an ideal addition in any home. Also notice the cute rounded feet at the bottom.

4. IKEA Hemnes Corner Cabinet, $179.00

Also available in white, this super tall corner bathroom cabinet (78") in a black-brown finish would pop nicely in a light-colored space. Although it might be a stretch for some of us to reach the top shelves, that simple fact makes it a great choice for a household with kids, keeping certain items high and out of their reach.

5. Wakefield No Tools Corner Cabinet, $149.99

Keep things simple yet chic with this 35-inch tall, gray corner cabinet with an adjustable shelf. Beyond its elegant design — also available in white — it touts an assembly time of 15 minutes or less.

6. Beachcrest Home White Broadview Park Cabinet, $158.99

Keep that corner floor free for a magazine rack or hamper by opting for this floating cabinet to store lightweight items. The louvered door is ready to go with magnets and hinges, and the shelf on the inside can be adjusted to your liking. For a bolder take, consider painting the door a contrasting color or swapping out the plain knob for something a little fancier.

7. RiverRidge Home Ellsworth Corner Bathroom Linen Storage Tower Cabinet, $169.99

Ooh la la ... this bathroom, that corner cabinet, the wallpaper — might as well just duplicate this whole design and live happily ever after, right? With three open shelves and two doors, this cabinet could work wonderfully in a master bathroom or busy guest bath. The arched top adds unique flair, but we'd even be inclined to take it to the next level with a little wood appliqué here and there.

8. Breakwater Bay White Olivares Armoire, $400.99

Love the coastal vibes of this eight-door corner bathroom cabinet? You're not alone. It offers storage for the whole family, or multiple roommates, and each fixed shelf is just over 15 inches, so there is ample room for essentials, both big and small.

9. Home Decorators Collection Winslow Single Door Linen Cabinet in Antique White, $524

You want pretty, here you go ... vintage flair with multiple levels of storage goes to this five-star rated corner bathroom cabinet. Look at those legs, that molding, the motifs — plus, did we mention it comes fully assembled?

10. Ellsworth Free-Standing Bathroom Cabinet, $114.99

Another corner cabinet from the Ellsworth line (we fawned over the tall gray cabinet earlier), this very popular two-shelf version with louvered doors works well for stashing essential toiletries and a few hand towels and washcloths. The espresso finish immediately makes it a focal point in a light-colored bathroom, so make whatever you top it off with just as charming.

11. Ballard Designs Frisco Corner Cabinet, $599

You know what this higher price point buys you? One of the more unique door treatments in the bunch — hello, farmhouse — has five shelves behind two doors for lots of storage, and it comes fully assembled. How's that for convenience and style?
