Existing basement lights

I'm remodeling my basement and have 6 single bulb lights on a 3 way switch. I'd like to still use 3 of the lights since the switches are in place for the steps & storage area. What should I do with the other 3 lights since I don't want to use them or disrupt the current circuit? Wasn't sure if simply removing the bulbs was good enough.

If having non functioning lights left in place is OK looks wise you could screw in burnt out light bulbs. That way you wouldn't have exposed open sockets. Next up labor wise would be to remove the sockets, wirenut the leads, and cover the box with a blank cover plate.

Edit: Or put CFLs in all six, more light, less juice used, less maintenance.
