Do you think it's OK to mount a track light in the center of a bedroom? Seems like they're usually closer to walls.
My concern is getting enough light. It's a lower level bedroom on the north side of the house, so there's not much natural light. Right now I have two 2x2 fluorescent fixtures in the suspended ceiling. Those lights will go away. I want to make sure I can get nice, bright, warm light in this room. I'm thinking that a track light is the only way to go, since there's too much stuff above the ceiling grid to install a good array of recessed lights.
I'd use one or more conventional surface mount fixtures. That's probably going to be the easiest, most effective, and lowest cost approach.
Track lights are directional devices - better than cans since at least you can aim the light, but still not so good for overall room lighting.
Is there something you could suggest? I want something that looks nice. Appearance is a consideration here, which is why I'm looking at track lighting.

That would be kind of tough without seeing the room. What I'd choose would depend on the height of the ceiling, the size of the room, and the style of the house. (As an old house fan, I tend to gravitate toward that style of fixture.)
And besides, what I'd choose would never match your taste. I'm just recommending that you look at surface mount fixtures.
Sorry to be so vague, but I'd suggest spending some time in a local lighting showroom, or at least look around online.
From your description, it seems that the 2x2 fluorescent fixtures are currently recessed into the ceiling.
1. Replace the current fluorescent tubes with those that produce warmer light (2700k).
2. Flat LED panel lights in place of the fluorescent fixtures. There are a variety available.
3. Cover the recessed spots and install some surface mounted fixture
