A wood laminate floor was damaged slightly and we need to determine if we can find replacement planks. I would like to take one plank out from a corner and bring it to Lowe's and Home Depot to try to match.

I am uncertain as to which corner to select. Any suggestions or lessons learned are appreciated. Thank you


You might want to consider the actual future repair options before you decide to remove any plank...are the damaged planks close to the wall -or- in the middle of the room?

I believe the details noted in this article will help you make your decision (note: I am not associated with the site): https://www.bestlaminate.com/blog/how-to-replace-damaged-laminate-flooring-planks/


When I lay a floor, I like to start on the longest, straightest, unbroken wall (in most cases).

It would be a good bet to pick a piece from the opposite wall of what I just described.
