Is this floor sufficiently blended?

Mike Brennan

We removed an interior wall to make an open floor plan for our kitchen and dining. The dining side had 60 year old red oak while the kitchen had tile. The flooring contractor expanded the hardwoods into the kitchen using a weave method, sanded the entire room, and put down poly (no stain as we wanted a natural look).

Of coruse, the border is clearly visible. Im told the newer wood will darken a bit over time. In addition I expedt it to be less noticable once the room has an island, cabients, and furniture. The floor also still needs its final coat of poly and a final buff.

Bottom line question: Is this floor good enough given the scenario? Should we have used a different appraoch?
