We recently remodeled our bathroom, and this is my new vanity that I built.

Congratulations on a great job! There used to be a cabinet making course at the local community college, but they haven't had it for awhile - I look every time the new schedule comes out in hopes that I can take it. I'm curious what factors you considered when choosing your drawer/door design, because I have gone through some different phases of how I would do such in the area I want to build cabinets for.

First, decide how much space you have to work with.  The middle door had to line up with the plumbing, and since we wanted it to be somewhat symmetrical, doors on either side.  Inside those doors on either side are pull out bins for our personal stuff.  Then with the space that we had left over, we wanted drawers to put soap, toothpaste, floss, and that sort of stuff.  We also had one drawer just for first aid stuff, and one for other stuff that we share.  It was a shared decision for the design.  You just have to decide what will work for you.

Oh, I forgot to add the drawers above the outside doors.  Also personal items, like combs, nail clippers, and such.

Very interesting. I am someone who really likes a drawer for storing most things. It sounds like you accomplished the function of a drawer with the look you wanted by having pull out bins behind the outer doors. NICE! Drawers are more expensive in time and material, though!

This is what my bins look like.  They don't even have to be pretty, just functional.

It looks great! We have a centre island that had 2 false drawer fronts to accommodate a set-in stove. When we took the stove out, I thought I'd rebuild the drawers but I am not really big on doing things perfectly and with wood, well that's actually pretty important. The drawers are in and they work, ish. I got an education in how not to do cabinet making at the very least. I really admire the perfection of your work, you did an excellent job!

Drawers can be tricky.  I buy the sliders, attach them to the drawers, and then fit them into the cabinet.  It's easier than going the other way.
