We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen. Cabinets have been taken out and the new drywall has been hung, just not mudded yet (soon hopefully). We really like the wood floors that are already there. They are fairly old and in really good shape. The problem is that the sink is in an island in the middle of the kitchen. We are moving it to the wall under the window so we can have a table (small house, no dining room). What can be done with the holes in the floor where the sink currently resides? Is it something that can be fixed? Sure, there is going to be a table and area rug over the holes if we get them fixed, but when it comes time to sell the house I don't want a huge nasty repaired hole staring up from the floor. I'm kind of hesitant to have the floors replaced because then I'd have to have the hallway and both bedrooms replaced to match. Can a new floor be installed over the existing one, or should it be ripped up first? The initial plan was to get everything in place and then worry about the floors last. If we do have to get them replaced should the floor be done first, or can you install a new floor with cabinets already in place?
