I had a company come in and clean my carpets recently, and while they were in the house they managed to chip a part of my laminate flooring.
I went down to the local home improvement megamart, and they suggested a putty designed for this purpose, but they didn't have a putty that was close to the color of the floor. Most of the putty colors were very light compared to the color of the wood.
They've also got some "pens" that I believe are for hiding damage to stained wood, and some of these are considerably darker. However, the chip is deep enough that it would be pretty noticeable if I just colored over it.
What should I do to repair the floor in such a way that it's the least noticeable afterwards? Bear in mind that I'm somewhat of a novice, so detailed advice would be appreciated.
