Your Thoughts On This Bathroom Lighting


I have a modest house with a single bathroom. I am currently doing some re-modeling myself which will included all new stuff in the bathroom.
I'd like to replace my circa 1984 hanging-globe-on-a-chain light with something that puts out more light, moves the light up higher and doesn't require me to patch a hole in the ceiling (i.e.; moving to a wall mount light), and is inexpensive. I have a 'popcorn' textured ceiling and I don't think I could patch it without it looking like it was patched.
My idea is to put three of these on the ceiling, centered over the mirror and the vanity:

with 60 watt bulbs and all three controlled by one switch.
Would appreciate any feedback from a style and also electrical standpoint. The vanity, door and trim are all high gloss white. Walls are light khaki/light tan.

try the bulbs of the same wattage limits on extenstion cords first. i enjoy a 250 watt heat lamp clear for a booster heat source, it makes easy shaving on a chilly day in the second bathroom where the shaving was by two 20 watt standard flourescents. i have found that old style vertically placed flourescents on each side of the medicine cabinet were sufficient when i was younger. now i recommend four 32 watt input twist flourescents screwed into a 4 socket horizontal bulb strip above the mirror allow reading the classified ads without reading glasses. don't forget your new minimum requirements: small cable tv with remote, night lighting, LAV-NAV battery toilet light, wall light switch powers up radio outlet, GE superadio III, two dual toilet paper dispensers, quiet exhaust fan, telephone. i don't have the internet in the bathroom. :) improve water flow, increase water heater temp if needed, run a new water line into the house or bath if needed. update to safety grab bars from old towel bars. see lighting at: http://www.lightsofamerica.com/twister.htm main page at: http://www.lightsofamerica.com /
