help with mirror and sink placement

I'm trying to remodel using the existing cabinet configuration. What is making it difficult is the cabinets are "L" shaped and I don't know where to put the sinks and mirrors. Originally the sinks were separated on two different sides as shown in pictures, but I'm planning on moving one so they will be on the same side of the cabinet. Also- I want to hang sconces next to the mirrors and if so how many sconces and how many mirrors? I'm using Carrera marble for the counter top and white subway tile for backsplash. Thanks for any help.

To me it looks like you just need to move over the drain, centered in the cabinet to the left of the existing sink would give you 2 balanced sinks. I suggest a mirror centered over each sink and 3 sconces, 1 on each end, 1 in the middle.

The side without the sinks could have a larger mirror centered and two more sconces. This counter could be a make up counter.

You could do another mirror and/or 2 sconces if you need more light in there. Personally I don't like too many mirrors in a space, find it disorienting. I would have a counterdepth, tall cabinet built to match your cabinets and sit on the counter, lining up with the bank of drawers and either leave that wall or on the countertop or on some shelves use big, pretty glass apothecary jars for everyday essentials.

How about a chair under the vanity on the unused side or at the corner (if you separate the sets).

I thought about using the side for a stool/vanity area, but wasn't sure how easy it would be to find a stool the right height.

Thanks-I thought about a vanity too, but didn't want to worry about trying to match flooring-I'm keeping the existing hardwood. I totally agree about the mirrors every wall had mirrors and it was so ugly...I guess it was cool in 1980.
