Need Advice on Bathroom Cabinet

Hello, I am presently getting my bathroom redone, the cabinets just came in today. I think the cabinets the contractor ordered are too deep for the bathroom, they are 22", see pic.
The cabinet is now on the casing for the door opening, once the countertop is added I think it will be too close to the door or even interfere with the door.

I think we need shallower cabinet for this bathroom, the contractor has made a mistake

Any advise would be greatly appreciated

Time for plan B.
Going to have to move the door over, change the location of the cabinit or get a differant vanity.

Yup. That's a problem. It looks to be a standard depth cabinet. If you can't move the door and wind up with a smaller cabinet you need to verify that your sink and faucet will fit.

The cabinet definitely doesn't fit right. It will most cost effective to swap out for a narrower width vanity. If its a custom piece and you can't exchange it, maybe there is another part of your home that it can be utilized and put a counter or add a hutch top to it for storage. Your contractor should work with you

space it out from the side wall about 1/2" and put a filler piece in there.

Although an 18" deep cabinet is the way to go. The back of that cabinet can be cut down to a smaller depth if your sink and faucet will fit it.


Work is for those who can not fish.
