Design My Own Bathroom Vanity?

Anyone know of any reputable sites that allow me to design my own bathroom vanity by choosing from various options?

I know Home Depot has their own design system online, but I'm hesitant about the quality (walking through my local Home Depot, I am NOT impressed with the vanity quality - drawers not straight, doors not level, etc.).

I also found a design tool online from some random company, but it seems those vanities end up costing like $2k. That's a bit over our price range by a bit more than double. We don't need an amazing vanity. Just something in the 30" range with a basic design for a 3/4 guest bathroom downstairs.

Any advice or sites, etc., would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Your wanting to custom design something where there are literally thousands of existing vanities readily available.

Big box stores do now sell quality, just cheap. Go find a cabinet supplier, a kitchen and bath store and take a look at what they have available!

If you want a custom vanity go visit a local custom cabinet shop. They can make whatever you want. It helps a lot if you know what you want and a sketch with dimensions is even better.

Ok, thanks all.

(I'd be fine with anything, really. My wife, on the other hand...wouldn't be fine with anything, really. )

IMO, the stuff stocked at the big box stores that you seen in the aisles is crap. I'm sure you can custom order something to your (your wife's) liking. Visit the rep in the kitchen/bath section. You'd be looking at a couple thousand easily if you were to have something custom made based on a customer design.

What's that saying, some people's trash is other people's treasure? Seems bathroom makeovers must be fairly common because I've seen a lot of very nice vanities at the Habitat Restore from time to time, and haven't needed one myself but wouldn't hesitate if it was what I wanted. Not saying that secondhand is the only way to go, but you might find a high end one, maybe more than you would want to spend for a new one, at a real decent price and be able to splurge on the top and faucet. The vanity in our master bathroom was straight out of the 60's and early 70's, and just plain gaudy. Finally got tired enough of it that I started looking at it in a bit different perspective, made a new set of recessed doors, painted over the pale green (as I recall) with white, replaced the hardware, and have since had several people ask where I found the "Better Homes" vanity. So sometimes even just a makeover is in order.

Thanks, All.

Mossman - never considered that. I just assumed that whatever I could design at the HD/Lowes design center would be of same quality as what they sell off the shelf. We'll give that a look. Hopefully it won't be a couple thousand!

Pedro - sounds nice, but we are renovating and moving a bathroom. So, building a bathroom from the ground up with nothing to makover. We do have a ReStore near us, so worth a look!

thanks again!

No sir. They'll have higher quality cabinets that you can order. I've ordered Kraftmaid kitchen cabinets and vanities from Lowes, which are decent mid-grade cabinets. Plywood boxes with maple faces. I want to say I paid $800 to $900 for a 60" wide custom-configured vanity.
