repairing a rip in cushioned vinyl

Evening all,
I just ripped a fair-sized tear in my new cushioned vinyl kitchen floor, the tear being two sides of a triangle about 10-15cm long.
(OK, so it's time to put some castors under the legs of the fridge and freezer)
Please can anyone offer advice on fixing this?

If it`s a fairly "neat" rip , then you can try gluing it down or using double sided tape.
If it`s not a neat rip , and you have have a spare offcut, then cut out a neat square and insert an identical piece from your offcut into the gap ( gluing etc.)
I did this second method fairly successfully after the dog ( when she was a puppy) decided to try and tunnel a hole in the newly laid cushion-floor.on the kitchen side of a closed door. The pattern consisted of squares so I just cut out a square and inserted an identical square fromthe offcut .
It was virtually unnoticeable when I had finished.
A useful tip when shifting fridges, washing machines etc. when you have cushion floor is to slip a bit of carpet offcut UNDERNEATH the machine to be moved and then it will move/slide easily over the vinyl without damging it.
