Lights and their shades

the house i have just moved into (inexplicably) has all the lights mounted on the walls, with bulbs pointing sideways out of the fixtures, no sconces or shades on them, just plain light bulbs. the bulbs are all (HORRIBLE) fluorescent lights. This will not stand. 1) exactly what bulbs should we be using? Low- to medium budget solutions preferred. 2) where can you get (or make) awesome light covers for wall-mounted lights? i have no idea. 3) general tips about bulbs and lights are very welcome, thank you.
