I have a hardwood (engineered) laminate floor in my kitchen.

It has few broken pieces, and there are now gaps between some of them (see photo here: http://i.imgur.com/Isa6B1Y.jpg and http://i.imgur.com/fyi7bYy.jpg). It doesn't look good, and I have been placing a rug over it, but I have discovered that rugs do not belong to kitchens. Additionally, there are other scratches I would like to get rid of (http://i.imgur.com/MbYkl5f.jpg).

The kitchen walls are built on top of it, and it would be very difficult to replace the whole floor.

I am looking for an easy, decent solution and I have thought of the following one:
1. Sand it first,
2. Apply paste between the pieces that have space between them,
3. Paint black, to make it these fixes less visible.

I am not sure the black is a good choice, and if there are better alternatives.
I have in mind a muddy black, not the shiny / sticky one you can get with varnish.

Does this make sense? Any suggestion on the material to use?

Thanks

Hi joeDiHare,
The links to the images don't seem to be working. You can upload the images if that is easier.
