About a year ago, I put laminate flooring (Quick Step, if it matters - the clicklock stuff) down in our living room. It was my first time ever doing it, and it went OK, except around the heat registers - I had no idea what to do so I just cut around them, but I cut far too wide, so now there's one register that has about an inch of exposed flooring around two sides of it
and another which has significantly more, probably about six inches between the flooring and the wall that is exposed
Both of these registers are behind furniture, so we aren't staring at them constantly, but they also haven't been fixed, and now I'm unemployed with time on my hands, so I'd like to see if I can fix them. The challenge is that I'm bad at things, and have no idea if this is fixable without pulling up parts of the floor and re-laying new laminate, which I'm not sure I can/want to afford, what with the unemployment and all. I think the one that only has an inch gap can be "fixed" by putting down a big heat-register cover of some sort, but the other one has me stumped.
Has anybody had experience fixing floors like this? Am I going to have to be resigned to waiting until I can buy a couple more boxes of flooring, pull up what I've done, and fix it properly?
