Would like to see pics/hear about expansion joints in your timber floor. We will be having one put in our living/dining area, but not sure what we're in for!
It is usually a strip of cork about 10 mm wide over a joist between the ends of the boards in a doorway.
If the boards are then coated first, a piece of cork can be used to trial various stains to match.
In my son's place the cork strip did not need any stain, it was a good match just coated when the floorboards were.
I will try to get a photo.
