To paint or not to paint...Judges paneling

5 years ago

My husband and I just moved into our very first home. Our living room is covered from floor to ceiling with wood paneling. He wants to keep it as is but I think we can update the space with a little paint. The dilemma is that we both love the richness of wood, but how to best incorporate that to the design. Current thought is to leave the beams and the handrail with the natural wood elements. I’m having difficulty deciding on if I should leave the wood that frames the perimeter of each panel as well. The last photo is the color I’d like to do (and if anyone knowa what it is we would appreciate it). We are also planning on putting hickory vinyl wood floors in. Thanks everyone!
