Referring to the "K" color scale 2700k would be on the yellow side, 5,000k would be closer to "daytime" normal condition light, which is closer to ~6,500k. As a Remodeling Contractor I recommend ~3,500k in the Kitchen (makes meats look better, 6,500k makes the meats look "greenish" and unappetizing) and anything around ~5,000k - 6,500k for the rest of the home. Bathrooms and women's vanity area especially.
So, IMO, use a dimmer and go for 5,000k for more natural appearing light.
