Solar LED Lights for Boat Cabin

Just installed some Lights and fans in a few cabins of a boat.  The system for the cabins will run off Solar PV.
The lights used are 4 watts each and two in each cabin.
There is an issue of the lights being harsh.  Since the height of the cabin is low, the lights come close to eye level.
I installed a cover over the lights and then it seems ok.  But the light then comes close to what you would get with a CFL.
After researching LEDs for the last 7 years and developing multiple LED products, mainly for street lighting and emergency & utility lighting like stairways, I am wondering whether LEDs are really suitable in a bedroom/cabin or living room areas.
