Tidying up / replacing strip wooden floor after removing layers of laminate and vinyl

Postby Oboe74 » Sat Jan 23, 2021 3:22 pm

Hi, about 2 years ago I removed 2 decades of vinyl and laminate in my dining area to reveal some dirty but solid looking floor boards. I sanded them down at the same time as installing a new kitchen, then neglected them for a couple of years. Now they are stained again, some have holes, and some have worn away where woodworm damage has been trodden on (see pics).

I am looking for advice on whether I can tidy them up, or just replace the whole lot to look at close as possible to the adjoining living room (whose floor boards look good - see pics). One issue, is I tiled over the last joist at the edge of the kitchen.

Any advice greatly appreciated!
