This cabinet is 44 inches high and 48 inches wide. It's nice looking, fairly modern, and has a large 3 piece mirror (3 doors). It came with a built in chrome "light bar" with SIX bulbs. It's made for those decorative round (exposed) bulbs.
The only thing I dont care for is having that many bulbs. (I'm not trying to buy the electric company)! Anyhow, I dont like the idea of leaving out bulbs (for both appearance and safety). My old fixture has provided adaquate light with two 60W (equiv) CFL bulbs.
My question is this: Do I just put in six 25W (equiv) bulbs (I'll be using LED), or is it better to just put in two 60W (equiv) bulbs (or three 40W) and fill the other sockets with dead bulbs? What would you do?
Yes, the option of installing a dimmer came to mind, but I dont care to have to fiddle with a dimmer in a bathroom when I run in there to take a piss, during the night, when I'm half asleep, Nor do I want the room to light up so bright that I'm almost blinded by it. Not to mention that DIMMABLE LED bulbs are a lot more costly, and I'm not sure if they make those decorative LED bulbs as dimmable.
