We have a house that was built in ‘95 and have carpet in dining room and living room. We want to get that updated and install hardwood floor. We already have this color hardwood in kitchen, hallway and breakfast area. If we are going to put hardwood in living room and dining room should we just rip out this floor(shown in attached pic) or just stain it? I am worried they won’t match. Also there are some scratches and gaps in the current hardwood so was thinking if we replace them it will look better. Any suggestions or input on this? Also what color hardwood is best if we don’t want to replace them in the next 20 years? We are planning on keeping kitchen cabinets white but will replace the counter with quartz or granite.
