Does ANYONE use 5,000 Kelvin with Dimmers in Kitchen / Living Room

We are replacing old incandescents In our kitchen, living room and family room. The cans are in and my husband bought 5,000 Kelvins Lights. He loves Them. Me...not so much. Yes, I agree....we can now see! Easy to read a newspaper, etc. so that part I like! But in the evening it feels weird to be in "broad daylight" We've only had them for 3 days. He thinks the reason people don't like them is that we all grew up with incandescent and it's just a matter of getting used to them. I read several threads on this forum about 5,000 but I saw NO one using them in living space. Are we crazy!?

Also, I saw there is a light that you can change color called Philips Hue. Are these Normal colors just like a 3;00 or 5;000 kelvin? Any drawbacks?
