The best way to brighten/update a dark paneled foyer and staircase

Linny G
last month

The house is 200 yrs old with a dark, large paneled foyer and staircase. Foyer is about 12x14 with a small closet. There is carpet on the foyer floor which needs be ripped up and replaced with tile/stone. The rest of house has hardwood flooring which will be refinished. How do I update the foyer without ripping out the paneling? What flooring should I put down? The dining room is all paneled as well.
