Smaller houses that at one time may have been overlooked as being turned into a home, have
increased in popularity. In a time where layoffs are as common as the cold, a family has to budget everything from
toilet paper to home loan payments. Downsizing of homes has a lot of benefits because they are easier to heat,
lower payments and the cost of maintaining them are usually budget friendly, but with smaller homes you have
smaller rooms, including your bathroom. Even if it is limited on space, it still needs to be comfy and

Smaller vanities are usually found equipped with a single door or double door bottom
cabinet and may be found with a shelf or without located under the sink. The side of the cabinet may have a few

to purchase a new one, step back and take a look at what you have in the bathroom already within that area. The
important items that you need to store are extra rolls of toilet paper, personal items for women, extra soap, and
an extra towel and washcloth.
Other items like extra shampoo, conditioner, curling irons, aftershave, perfume and makeup
can be stored in the drawers, in containers under the sink or even in a nearby closet. By knowing what absolute
necessities need to be stored, will help to better reorganize it, keeping the bathroom cleaner and more presentable
for when guests arrive.
Small bathroom vanities come in every color, design and style imaginable, but no matter
how much you loved that specific design in the store, if it doesn’t provide you with the storage options needed
after you take it home, it will soon be declared as the wrong choice. Think before you purchase about everything
from the drawers, color, and cabinet area to make sure that the choice you make, will be the choice you will love
for years to come.
