Harwood patching ideas wanted for kitchen remodel

2 months ago

I am planning to update our kitchen by removing a wall and place a 8ft (+12" overhangs) island. As part of the removal of the wall I will have missing hardwood wood floor. The island overhang will start by the blue tape.

I had several contractors look at it and they all want to refinish the entire floor (wood patch + finish entire floor). We have an extensive area with many odd shapes that concern me. My biggest concern is that the bevels will not look good anymore. So, I am looking for alternative ideas. One idea I had is to put tiles between current wall and where island would start. At the same time update the fire place tiles to match. But I have not seen anyone doing this.

Any help is much appreciated.
