Need help deciding on medicine cabinet options

I would like to put a medicine cabinet in my bathroom, but would also like the mirrored area in there to be fairly large -- by medicine cabinet standards. Somewhere around 25 - 30 inches. I linked a quick drawing of the setup I have. Do you guys think it would be possible to have a medicine cabinet that is big like that and still have the sconces on the sides?? If the cabinet is not recessed, but the lights only come out 5" that's a huge problem, right? I've only seen the larger widths of the type that are not recessed...

Are there any alternatives to having the medicine cabinet in the bathroom? Does anyone have any other clever ways to store all the tiny stuff that normally goes in there?

Oh, and the purple area is where we currently hang our towels. Crappy place, but in this bathroom, I can't think of a better place. I have toyed with the idea of putting the medicine cabinet there (so it will be behind the toilet and towels)....but have since decided that's not very convenient. :P

Here is a link that might be useful:
