How to partially change flooring in part of hallway?
I had a very old poodle who had numerous accidents in one place in our hallway all the time before he passed away. We are looking to replace that section of flooring but the issue comes in with 4 doorways coming off the hallway. We do not want to change every room or the other part of the hallway yet and may not use the same flooring for them as we do in the section we want to replace now. I have attached a picture for reference on where the doorways are. The one door is just to my furnace closet. There is also a doorway to guest bathroom that cannot be seen in the picture. How do I transition from this section to all the doorways? We were thinking about painting? Is there a reason we should not paint? We are on a tight budget with only 1 of us working. Any inexpensive floor ideas and how to transition to all the doorways would be greatly appreciate. We can do the work, we just don't have alot of money. I am pretty sure we may have to change out some subfloor as well due to all the accidents have more than likely soaked into the wood subfloor. HELP!!!
Sorry for the long post.
Thank you in advance.
