We have wood flooring throughout our living room, family room, and kitchen but it meets up with the hallway and abruptly ends and goes into wtw carpet for the hall and three bedrooms. There is no wood under the carpet and the wood flooring is original to the house (built 1979). It was laid in place and finished and sealed in the home. We want to make wood throughout. My husband is concerned that using hardwood flooring you can set yourself (prefinished) will look very different and bad, but the cost and inconvenience of finishing it in place is too much. Has anyone been in a situation like this? Did you manage to match modern, pre-finished flooring with older wood and make it look good?
