I live in a small older house and have used many of these ideas. I have the little freestanding self over all 3 of the toilets They all have one drawer. All my toilets have a cabinet above so the larger armoire styled shelf is not needed but my sister has them. Anyway that shelf over the toilet is longer , wider and more sanitary than the toilet top and so very useful. I also have used the wire selves for rolled towels in the absence of a linen cabinet. I have installed hooks over the door in all of them. I have the upward facing hooks in the smallest bathroom and put the rolls of clean, white toilet paper on those hooks. There is nowhere else to store it and guests don't have to search and worry. This very old house already had a niche built in by the tub . They were very practical in 1936. I advise looking at some old bathrooms. All of the suggestions for using angles, corners and small narrow spaces were very good. You can make even the smallest bathroom very functional with practical storage and a lot of it is do it yourself and available at discount suppliers.

Our favourite is number 1 as we are a joinery company this is something we see a lot of - but agreeing with your comments, we would close off more of the top section to create a higher cupboard for cleaning products or less used items, still leaving 1 or 2 display shelves.
