Bathroom Circuits

I have a 1980 Tri-level home. I am remodeling the master bath. Here is my dilemma. I have a 15 amp circuit that supplies both baths including florescent lighting in both baths, outlets in both baths (GFI), the kitchen florescent lighting and the dining room lighting. I was planning on updating the lighting in the bath to a bar light. In the future I will update the other bathroom to a bar light and the kitchen to cans. I know this will overload this one 15 amp circuit but it will involve running new circuits through the floor between the upper and lower floor with a lot of sheet rock repair and fishing wires. It will not meet the newer codes if I don't run new circuits. As I see it I would run a new 20 amp circuit to each bath and leave the kitchen and dining room on the old 15 amp circuit. My wife and I do want the new lighting. Any ideas on this or suggestions.

Run the new circuits. You don't really have a choice if the remodeling is significant.
