just a Public Service Announcement from a guy in the lighting field.
If you have a choice of color temperatures, the highest perceived illumination for the human eye will come from 4000-6500 K temperature LEDs. That's why parking garages use 5000k color that isn't very pretty, but they meet code requirements for foot candles while keeping power consumption to a minimum. Contrast is what the human eye needs in order to see details. Think about newspapers and how in bright environments you may not need reading glasses.
4000k is a typical commercial color used in offices etc, altho a lot of that is changing. 2700-3000 is what you see in residential kitchens and washrooms. 3500 k is used in most architectural designs.
6500 gives the best pop of colours etc and is what I use to light up my workshop.
If you really have a choice, CRI (color rendering index) is standardized at 80+, some nicer spaces call for 90+ and museums and other high value environments call for even higher numbers. I believe California recently introduced 95CRI requirements for their (new) street lighting. This will eventually be adopted throughout the industry, so everything will end up looking nicer.
Think about how when walking thru Home Depot's lighting section, the glare and harshness has improved every year......along with light levels and efficiencies.
It's a great time to be alive and see all these (new) technologies mature and flourish.......
