Would you want your house to have paneling? (link)

I lived in a house a few homes back that had a paneled wall in the dining room that we eventually painted. Painting that one paneled wall made the room so much lighter! But it wasn't an expensive paneling; I do hate to see beautiful paneled walls painted. I see--in looking at some of these paneled rooms--that color added to the room definitely makes a difference, though most of the paneling seen here is light, which I certainly prefer. However, I've read that early home owners would be shocked that we're using knotty pine--or any knotty wood, which is not a top grade wood since knots tend to pop out. See if you're ready to try panelling again. Link: Wood Paneling That Isn't Ugly Design Happens
