Flooring options

We are planning on a kitchen reno, new cabinets, flooring appliances etc. There is jatoba cherry flooring in Living and dining room. Currently have white ceramic floors in kitchen and hallway, would like to have wood there as well. The dining room runs into the kitchen, and the hallway is also visible to the living room, so I think the sane wood would be best. Not sure if we can get the same wood, it's 10 yrs old, any other suggestions, would rather not tear up existing wood floors so all match.

Even if you cannot get the exact same wood, you should be able to refinish all of the floors to match,

You should be able to get the Brazilian hardwood, but apparently this flooring's color deepens as it ages, so it's not likely it will match. Talk to an experienced floor guy and see what he can do. Perhaps they can stain the new wood to match.

Groveraxle is right. Jatoba deepens in colour with age. You should definitely be able to source jatoba hardwood. It is a product that is still available for purchase. It may take some time to locate it, as it is an exotic wood and there may be some lead time in getting the product.

thanks for the suggestions, I did find the wood, and the company said if you run it in a different direction, it may be better, refinishing may be what I need to do though,
