Measuring for bathroom vanity cabinets

Need to know if I can configure cabinets measuring a total of 84" (two 36" sink cabinets with two drawers each and one 12" drawer pack) into a wall to wall space of 84 3/4". If so, should cabinets be installed so that the door swings to the wall v. the two drawers of each sink cabinet being adjacent to the wall? Want to make sure I have enough clearance as I will only have 3/8" on each side. Cabinets are full overlay. Thanks.

If you could find "mirrored" 36" bases, you could have the doors open to the inside with the sink over each one, and the 12" drawer stack between them. It would look symmetrical, and your sinks won't be so far apart. This places drawers at each wall and in the middle. As far as size goes, the math has it. Install the two sink cabinets first, and then slide in the 12 incher, fastening the stiles with screws to make one unit out of all 84 inches. A piece of trim molding will fill the space on either side.
