Think long and hard before paint in it.
If you do there's no going back and will just look like painted car siding.

Ditto. I was about to say the same thing.

We moved into our house 1 year ago and the best advice I received was to do nothing major right away. Live in the house and see what you think in 6-12 months. It is amazing how dramatically your thoughts can change. This will keep you from making decisions you regret and cannot reverse.

You may still decide to paint the wood if you wait 6 months but at least you will be more sure of your decision. Good luck with the new house

Thanks everyone for your thoughts - it's good to get opinions from fresh pairs of eyes . I think I'll just clean it well for the time being and let it be - perhaps change the flooring eventually to better match the walls.

I know i am not answering your question but honestly I would not paint this, it looks nice to me. I think natural would look better than painted.

OP... Just a thought / consideration if you do decide to paint.

Your TnG looks tight (as opposed to the toung showing between planks)....

but sometimes in instances where it is not tight, and especially on ceilings, you have to fill the grooves with caulk or risk extreem shadowing in the grooves and a very broken up type facade.
