    Jacquie kitten - are they not matching from the stain you applied, or are you asking how to make the floor stain match on all the floors.

    Is both jobs what you are showing? If so, that is definitely a darker stain. Maybe the manufacturer changed its formula?

    Restain it all to match, if you have the time and money, or use peel and stick tile for a temporary fix. Then use the end connection (I can't think of the exact name right now) that finishes a wood floor, to stop the flow and cover the seam.

    Looks like the bottom half has faded from sunlight? I would strip up the top half using a stripper made for stain, and then match the floor using either the internet color chart or a brochure from either Minwax or Varathane stains. If the color is in between 2 stain colors... buy both and add the darker stain to the lighter stain a little at a time, making sure both are well mixed to the bottom until it matches. Try on scrap wood, in strips until one matched older floor.

    Use a floor sander to get all of it down to bare wood. Stain it all at the same time after that. Polyurethane everything to protect it.

    I would do what Cynthia suggests. If you want it all to match, I'd get a floor sander and start all of it new with the exact same stain.
