Any ideas on additional lighting in bathroom 27rlws?

Would like to add more lighting. Thinking of maybe a 3 bulb light bar on ceiling or wall above medicine cabinet, preferably wall. Measures 7" height x 23 3/4" wide. Worry going into the wall. Probably run wire from the existing light. Any ideas, thank you

Could drill a hole close to wall and fish the new wiring over to the existing light. Might be a big enough gap behind the trim if not they make moldings to cover the wires and look nice. Just remember that you are going to need 12 v lights.

While you are adding lights, you can make more vanity space using a modified cutting board. This little mod brought great peace upon the household.

Good ideas using puck lights and cutting board. We also use regular night lights thru out our trailer, including inside the bathroom when we're plugged into shore power. Helps a lot dodging furniture and the dog during the night.

I replaced mine with one of these...does not matter which one as its just a personal preference really.
rv vanity light | eBay

Now while not as aesthetically nifty, although these are very modern looking, but for really good LED lighting that you can aim I use these also in my RV. This size really adds a nice bright light when that dimmer yellow just wont due.
