The general contractor brought us in to create a double sink vanity in a new addition he built for this couple’s home. The original house was over 200 yrs old so we designed cabinetry with wider stiles & rails and inset the door & drawer fronts to give it more ‘age’ and class.

Three of the pics show my original floor plan and both elevation views…

Their architect had repositioned the entry door which left us less wall space, so we narrowed the make-up desk and placed it at the end of the cabs, on the right. He also eliminated the wall cabs (for recessed ceiling lights and to accommodate wall mounted mirrors with sconces above). He asked us to create a ‘tower’ (for two medicine cabinets ). We adjusted our numbers, modified the plan and got to work.

One pic is the architect’s sketch on my floor rendering…

And the other two are electrician’s work and, finally, how it turned out…

Nice job, but I liked your original design with the makeup table in the middle. Less crowded between the sinks.

it also feels wrong to me to be sitting at the end of the cabs & the door is directly to the right of the desk / I would hate to sit there / meant nothing to her so why fight the architect (& there’s no future $ in fighting the architect)
