Mounting extension for bathroom light fixture

We are considering replacing our bathroom mirror (which is flat against the wall) with a medicine chest that would extend 5.5 inches from the wall. The lighting fixture above the current mirror would not clear the medicine chest; the light source would be blocked by the chest.
The question is, is there any kind of extender mount that would allow us to move the lighting fixture off the wall about 5 inches to clear the protruding medicine chest?
Thanks! BC

Hi, Goose neck type fixture? Visit a lighting store and have a look. Or couldn't you recess cabinet into wall cavity if it's sheet rock wall? Cabinet width is usually made to fit between wall studs.

Unless you are in love with the fixtures, probably easiest to get different ones- they aren't expensive. Have you picked your cabinet yet? Many are available that include lights. Also pretty easy to move fixtures, since the cabinet will cover up the holes in the drywall. Of course, you could also build a hardwood box to match the cabinet, and mount the fixture on that.
