Buy a sample piece, making sure it shows any repeat patterns, or find a hidden spot in the pantry or under appliances where a piece of flooring can be cut without being noticed.
Step 1. Cut damaged area
Cut around the damaged area and loosen the adhesive in one corner with a hairdryer.
Using a utility knife, cut the replacement piece to roughly match with a 15mm overlap.
Step 2. Tape replacement
Tape the replacement piece over the damaged area, making sure it matches and completely overlaps the hole.
Cut through both pieces with a utility knife, following the pattern line.
Step 3. Secure new piece
Remove the damaged section and any backing material.
Apply vinyl flooring adhesive with a notched trowel and secure the new piece, going over the seam with a vinyl floor sealer.
