I used something like this in an apartment bathroom once that had no storage. It fit perfectly in the narrow space between the toilet and sink and the height maximized the storage for the floor space used. I never knew it was called a chimney cabinet though!

Michele, yours might not have been called a chimney cabinet - but if you ever need to find one again, it's helpful to know that's what they are sometimes called.
