The house I purchased has the original hardwood floors from 1958. I'm guessing they are oak and they are 2 inches by 3/4 inch solid wood. In 1991 an addition was built on to the back of the house. At this time a wall was knocked down and approximately 130 square feet were added to make one large master suite with sitting area/office. The living room leads into the hall and then into the master bedroom. So, about 600-700 square feet of original hardwoods exist (currently covered in hideous carpet) and I want to know if it is going to cost more to try and match the original floors, or should I rip them all out and start from scratch. Essentially half of the master beadroom has the hardwoods and half does not. There is also another 100 square feet upstairs. My plan would be to sand them down, stain, and finish them all. Any thoughts or ideas would be much appreciated.
