Oddly enough, what you need to pass is a GUILayout.Width as the GUIStyle parameter. The straightforward option is to just call the GUILayout.Width static method and it will return the apppriate GUILayoutOption.

public class CustomEditor : Editor {

    public override void OnInspectorGUI() {
        EditorGUILayout.LabelField("Top", GUILayout.Width(20));

You can also be more flexible and call one of the following methods:
  • MinWidth which lets you set a minimum width.
  • MaxWidth allows you to set a maximum width.
  • ExpandWidth will allow the element to take all the available space.
