In my last post, I made the case for replacing a wood floor.  In this post, I’ll show you how to weave a new floor into an existing floor seamlessly.

This is the same project that I posted about last week.  However, it is on the opposite side of the room.  On that side, the new kitchen abuts the client’s family room.  That oak floor was in great shape.

The key is to stagger the new planks with the old ones.  Naturally, the old floor has to be sanded down to the bare wood so we can achieve a color match.  The new floor and the old floor are given a stain and top coat finish.  The results speak for themselves.  No one would guess that these were two different floors.

The result. Beautiful!
