If your willing to consider a laminated veneered unit Ronbow is well made. $600 is light

It is very doable if you aren't scared off by RTA cabinets. Check out wayfair.

No way. I had one made for some specs similar to yours, finally found a guy to do it for me on the side, was $1800. It included the installation. I too was expecting something in your range, was kind of a shock. And that was over 7 years ago!

This is a pic of it -

At that price point check out Lowes. They have a decent selection of almost real wood cabinets. Much better bang for the buck vs Home Depot. You really need to spend double or more to get into a decent quality cabinet.

You might try these guys: https://www.allwoodfast.com/ideagallery.aspx

We did all three of our bathroom vanities from them.

21" vanity sink + 15" 3 drawer unit might work. $681 in Ridgeway Mocha Glaze

I think the marble work on my vanity above was right around $700 That included materials, fabrication, installation, holes for faucets and even included the sink. I would have thought that cost would have been the opposite to what the vanity cost was. Marble work was done by a friend of a friend so I guess I got "Friend" discount on that.

This is a pic of it -

I'll top your unfinished $1,800 with a just short of $850 all in - electrical wiring, GFI outlet, ABS plumbing, copper pipe, ball value shut offs, solid white oak to make the doors, rails and stiles, polyurethane to finish, soft close hinges, handles, plate mirror (that I had to cut down to size), tile, grout, mastic, tile edging and caulking. I just finished about 16 days ago. Sink and taps were just short of $800. The old stock taps I bought were 2.2 gpm flow rate which I modified to give me upwards of 3+ gpm. The counter top I lucked out on for $5 at the local re-use-it store) and $48 for the trim around the mirror.

There is nothing like being able to do stuff yourself at a professional level.

For me to have added a three drawers I would have had to buy one set of 22" full pull drawer slides, I've got two sets of 22" in stock salvaged from an old pulled cabinet, the rest of the material I have in stock.


Although the picture doesn't do the colours justice, in person they go great.

If you are handy, you could cut this project down to under $400. That cabinet can be built for under $60 in materials.The company you bought it from probably used scrap/leftovers. Labor cost only. $1800, you got crushed. But, It looks nice.

Aside from the cabinet is really only built with one side (side adjacent to the washing machine) and a bottom panel the part that I"m most pleased with is I didn't want the center style to impede on the opening size when both doors are opened. So I fixed the center style to the right side door panel. And that allows for a cabinet to look like a stick frame cabinet yet is really a european style cabinet.

Don't sell yourself short, that is well worth showing off, that is beautiful! .

Custom bathroom vanities are just expensive compared to a whole kitchen.

Hundreds of vanities out there if you search on line HD or Lowe’s. You won’t find it in stock.

Our prices up here would have that top in around 6 to $800 w/ 3 sided back splash and the sink another $180. Then add another $150 for tile back splash plus labour. The cabinet is easily another 5 - $600 plus finish. So it's a pretty good deal at $1,800.

I know I did. I was under a time schedule and was really busy at work at the time. The guy was slammed himself at the time so I think he just threw out the large dollar number thinking I would reject it. If I had more time at the time I definitely would have looked for a better deal. I'm happy with it.

Amazon last year; all REAL WOOD $329.00. Took my handyman about an hour to put together in a new rental unit. The Granite top, sink, faucet in photo were not included.

LOL, "Up Here" ? You must live near OP. That's remnant stone. $100 with BS polished,, top end. $5-600 for the cabinet? WOW, I need to move up there.
If you are not handy, go visit a stone shop, and millwork shop. You can get a deal if you are halfway personable. Cash goes a long way. These company's are using scraps.
