Height and spacing of open shelf “linen closet” in main bath

last month

We’re doing a refresh of the tiny main bath in our house. It has 8 ft ceilings and a narrow (less than 1 foot) space between one wall and the shower. That space used to have very sad diy plywood shelves installed, and a foot or so of partial wall at the top. We need the storage so are planning to install new floating shelves. I had assumed we would leave a couple feet at the bottom to slide in a small hamper and then take the shelves all the way to the ceiling. But then I saw this first inspo picture and like how they stopped the shelves partially up the wall. At what height would you place the highest shelf? I think we’ll put extra spare rolls of tp, backstock of toiletries and cleaning stuff, etc. in a large basket on the top shelf so it doesn't need to be super accessible.
