are hard to match without refinishing the whole things however.

I am betting you may have this wood in a closet. a flooring contractor will be able to piece these in to make it look great.

If you attempt this on your own be sure not to put all the ends in a line. The ends need to be staggered or your floor will look like you have a patch.

I'm also agree with ellisonjs that it'll be the best option to hire a contractor. They are expert at these kind of critical situations.

I think making it into a closet or storage area would be a good idea

A big closet, or small playroom, or a spare bed may work
