Powder room lighting question - 2 sconces enough?

Hi all, I'm cross-posting from the Bathrooms forum in case anyone here can help me...thanks in advance :)

We are remodeling our small powder room (~ 3' x 6') and we would like to put two scones on the wall like this:

We are also doing a similar pedestal sink. Here are the sconces I really like, but they each take only one 60w B10 candelabra base bulb. Do you think that is enough lighting for a small powder room? Currently there is no ceiling fixture, just a fan. I could replace the fan with a fan/light combo, but I'd prefer not to do that unless necessary. Does anyone know if the 2 60W candelabra bulbs would be enough? Thank you!

Yes, that should be enough. 120 watts is more than enough. Guests won't be shaving or putting on make-up (except maybe lipstick). I'd even put them on dimmers. Mood is more important than brilliance in a powder room.
