Beadboard with non-framed room openings


I am planning to install beadboard on the lower 1/3 of my gameroom walls. However, there are 4 room openings that lead to the kitchen, living room, and laundry room that do not have frames or doors. These openings also have bull-nose round corners. Traditionally, it would be easy to stop the beadboard on the edge of a door frame. However, I am unsure how to stop the edge of the beadboard on the openings without the leading edge of a frame to butt up against. What is the best method in doing so?

I am a first time home owner and this is my first home improvement project. A lot of terms I am new to so please bare with me

Not the best look but your going to have to " picture frame" it.
Just stop it short before the opening and add vertical trim.
Sort of like this.

With what time of trim to picture frame? Should I use the same vertical trim in the corners so it doesn't look out of place?

Also, the link you provided only applied to cased/door framed rooms.

Just don't do it. Beadboard is a country look and you have a pretty contemporary home. The two don't mesh.

I disagree. In addition, that is not what the topic is about.

Any ideas?
