Small bathrooms are a challenge. Storage and countertop space are top priorities in any bathroom, but more so in a tiny one. While many people opt for the open look of a pedestal sink, they aren’t always practical because of the lack of places to stash stuff. Proper organization is of the utmost importance in these heavily used rooms.
When shopping for a new vanity, keep in mind how you’ll be using it. It should have compartments for smaller items, like toothpaste and hair brushes, as well as larger compartments for towels and appliances. It should also use every square inch wisely. False drawer fronts and wide frames are simply wasted space. The vanities I’ve rounded up today are heavy hitters in the storage department and look great, too.

Martha Stewart is an expert at organization and this vanity shows it. The 3 drawers have full-extension slides, meaning you see the entire drawer and won’t spend time digging for lost items in the back. The large side door has a pull out shelf as well and leaves room for the plumbing. The beautiful gray color is neutral for a stylish and versatile look. The bottom shelf is open to store more items such as towels or baskets. A crisp white top has an integrated sink for easy cleanup and is also included for the $399 price.
