If you would like to build a bathroom vanity for yourself or for someone else, then you should know how important it is to have good plans and ideas.
I have gathered the following bathroom vanity plans from across the Internet, with the hope that they'll provide you with the much-needed inspiration to get building.

Honestly, this vanity does not look like a DIY project because it is so nice and so professional looking. Katie and her hubby built it for the hubby's brother.
The vanity box's frame was built using birch veneer plywood, while the joints used pocket holes. Katie also used wood that was lying around to make the face frame, so it's hard to say exactly how much this project cost.
Katie only built the vanity, while her brother-in-law added the glass backsplash, the quartz top and the rest of the hardware. She leaves a link to the original plans though.
This DIY double vanity is 70 inches wide and 23 inches high. The drawers are about 20 x 16 inches in dimensions.

Here we have a design that looks so simple but is equally stylish and very modern at the same time. John and Sherry put this amazing piece together for less than $400.
It requires transforming a side table into a modern and classy vanity with a lovely sink and a cool chrome faucet. The first step was to properly coat the side table after lightly sanding it. This should protect the wood from water.
