floor­boards of­ten have more mod­ern boards mixed in where re­pairs have been done over the years. Paint­ing them makes it eas­ier to dis­guise the new ones than with wood stain or var­nish, although dark var­nishes can work re­ally well – I rec­om­mend us­ing Ron­seal Diamond Hard Floor Var­nish in Satin Wal­nut (£42.98 for 2.5L, B&Q).

You can, of course, re­place the new boards with pe­riod ones, but there’s no guar­an­tee that they’ll match per­fectly when sanded.
