Q: We have a 1950’s home with original hardwood flooring. I’m pretty sure that the floors (maple?) have been refinished at least once. The previous owner had the built-in shelving/electrical fireplace removed, along the length of the living room wall, and now we see the difference in the finished floor.
Is there a way to finish the strip (14″ wide) along the wall, that seems to be unfinished and lighter in colour, without doing the whole floor? (Since this would require the whole main floor to be refinished!)
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

I have removed a wall dividing the sitting room from the dinning room. What is the best way to extend the hard wood floor to the dinning room, and maintain the same texture of the floor?
