We are renovating our Californian Bungalow. The old front part of the house is staying and the entire back part has been demolished. The front part has original honey coloured floorboards (Photo attached) in the hallway. I have my heart set on floorboards (floating/hybrid) for the large open plan back of the house, something like a Blackbutt. Completely different coloured flooring.
My design dilemma is -
1. Leave the floorboards in the hallway, and place a hall runner down the middle.
2. Cover the floorboards in the hallway with new flooring.
3. Try to match our preferred flooring in the new part to the original flooring.
Thanks in advance.
