Thanks, Roccouple! It is an easy design to make. If you have more floor space than I do, you can make the left leg pullout wider and even use a prefab pull-out like this, or even wider ones with trays.

The toilet side is a simple shelf. The only complicated things were the mounting for the sink, which will differ with each kind of sink, and the brace underneath to add strength. That may not even be needed if the two end legs are wider than mine and the cabinet deeper than my paltry 14 inches. Any good wood worker or cabinetmaker should be able to make it to fit your space.

30 is my fav. Really different and I love the idea of a horizontal element all over the wall. I could see something like that in my bath reno down the road, was wondering how to get good space for toothbrushes etc. under the mirrors...! A built in shelf, maybe even tiled, would do that trick for me!

When we remodeled our bathroom, I intentionally designed it NOT to have horizontal counter space, which always attracts clutter & dust (see photo above in my submittal dated March 20). Instead, we have 2 built-in cabinets (shelves behind cabinet doors above, drawers below) where everything goes-- one cabinet next to the sink has an electrical outlet inside to charge the toothbrushes. This way, it allows the bathroom to look clean, uncluttered and serene, and all the junk stays out of sight. I don't miss having counter space. Also, I like having fairly shallow cabinets so that you don't have to root around in deep dark recesses to find what you want, and they are not too massive for a small bathroom.
