Few of us are fortunate enough to have the luxury of a spacious bathroom. It often is, quite literally, the smallest room in the house and also a room where we need to store a lot of stuff, which can be a dilemma.
One way around the small room issue, not just in bathrooms, is to opt for storage units that utilize as much vertical space as possible.
Tallboys or tall storage units fit the bill and are particularly suitable for small bathrooms. There are plenty to choose from once you start looking and, as always, the best unit is the one that fits your budget and style. White, cream and light natural wood colours work best in limited spaces but there are no set rules.
All these units are about 160-180cm high. Tall enough to be practical without the need for step ladders to reach the top shelf.
