Question Trimming around Pocket Door and Laundry Sink

Hi everyone,

I wanted to see what people's thoughts on a final trimming around a pocket door were. The sink butts up right against the side of the pocket wall. One of the photos shows me holding the jamb leg which will run from top to bottom but I need to figure out the casing side.

The images don't show the sink countertop and sink. I am trying to figure out how to do the casing. The molding in the picture is what we have cased the doors on another floor with. I was even thinking a thinner/simpler and slimmer casing since the sink top is going to be so close.

Any thoughts on what would work best here? I can't move the sink to the right because it would push the laundry/dryer further under an outside window.

Number one, you should have added a 3/4"- 1 1/2" filler to the left side of that cabinet to move the door hinge away from the door trim. The way it is now, you can't hardly add any trim or the door won't open. I know you say you can't do it, but that's what ought to have been planned for.
