A note about cd: candellas are a unit of intensity, and not light output. So a 10cd LED with a 30 degree viewing angle would output the same amount of light (lumens) as a 5cd one with a 42 degree viewing angle (I think I got the math right).
Now, which should be of greater concern is up to you; I would think that a targeted light such as a reading light you're concerned about the candellas (as long as the angle is sufficient), while a flood light like the floorwell you'd be more concerned about lumens (and may what to use a diffuser to spread out the light)
edit: ah, pictures! Looks like you already have a diffuser on the floor lights.
