Hi everyone. We are looking to buy a new-build house that has beamed ceilings in many of the rooms. The beams are softwood, pine I guess. I don't think they are structural. We have the choice as have them painted or not. I assume that unpainted means no finish at all, just bare wood. They look good just left unpainted - even though they are just pine. My question is; is it OK to have bare wood? Any disadvantages or problems leaving them like that?
