cover floor space where old wall was

I'm looking for advice on how to cover the floor space where an interior wall once stood. The area is about 8" wide by 3', and is 3/4" deep. This will be a transition from kitchen to dining area; on one side is old hardwood, and on the other side will be either vinyl or linoleum. What should I fill this void in with once I remove the old 2x4 wall base?

Lace in the hardwood floor. Buy some of the same flooring you now have. Cut out the square ends and offset the joints, just like the rest of the floor.
Sand and refinish.
