Contemporary/modern Vanity to fit a 33" space

Hello;
As I am renovating/upgrading the small powder room in our house, I noticed that the old vanity/cabinet that I like to replace is 33" wall to wall. Do they make contemporary/modern cabinets that size. I have a hard time locating one in that size. If I was to use a smaller vanity size, how would I match and fill the gap to be flush to the walls?

Thank you in advance.
Ben

Keep shopping around, I turned around and grabbed 2 different cabinet company books and flipped to bath vanity cabinets. Both had options at 33" as standard. If you are shopping at the box stores, stop by the kitchen design center desk and talk with them. You probably will not find that size as a stock item you can purchase off the shelf. They can, however, order one in for you.

A picture of what you have now would sure help.
Sounds like a custom built old vanity to me.
Simple enough to add filler strips on the two ends of the cabinet, but the top is going to be the problem.
Is yours just a Formica top?

AS Joe says...As far as the top goes any stone or counter top house will make one to fit. If you go with something like granite it will be inexpensive because they will use a piece of scrap.

Unless the stone fabricator is having an inventory liquidation sale. The style dictates the price of the stone, not the size. They will charge you "x" amount for the stone and "x" amount for the labor to fabricate regardless of whether it is left over from a previous job, or cut from a new slab. The only time you end up paying substantially more, is if you get an exotic stone that they will have difficulty moving the excess stone after your install. In that case, you purchase the slab at a premium to offset storage fees on the leftovers. Otherwise, prices are fairly standard for everyday varieties and do not vary with size or scrape status.

Photos of the existing vanity

Thank you all for your responses.
We have looked at some contemporary/modern vanities in our area(Toronto,Canada). Most of the ones that we(actually, the Boss) likes are imports from Europe. Trying the filler avenue may not be an option as you want to match the material.
She is also not too keen on stone tops.
Please check out the photos of the existing vanity/sink and the type we are hoping to get(rather than having it custom made).

The first photo is the old vanity and the 2nd, the "type" of vanity/sink we are looking to replace it with.

Thanks
Ben
