Poll: Oak bead board: classic or outdated?

I have oak beadboard in my kitchen. Its in good shape.
I also have oak cupboards and 1950s maple wood work.
Would you paint the bead board or not?
I'd like to paint the walls a taupe color but think its too much brown.
Classic or outdated? TIA!

  • Beadboard is still in fashion. I have seen it painted white to give a more updated feel to a room.

  • I love white bead board and chair railings. I live in a beach home and am in the process of major construction. I have been thinking of adding some BB in my home.
