Re: Real wood wall paneling
It is your house now, I say remodel and update it to reflect your tastes and needs. This does not mean that you have to trash the walls. What I would be inclined to do would be to salvage the wall material and reuse it in another manner, such as make furniture, decoration, or accents out of it. It would depend on how much material you have what you will be able to do with it, but there are few limitations. Reusing the material will honor your grand parent's memories.
