Ok smarty pants crew. Now for the difference. I was,, well into the hundreds, now to start,I am an industrial design, but I have confirmed color blindness. The issue isn't nearly as simple as the test shown however. While I'd love your color vision (and am currently clad only in black, however it's a T-shirt and shorts) there are distinct differences in this test that make it harder or easier depending on the type of color blindness as well. To properly complete this test I believe I could get within 50, but the real issue is different types of colorblindness give profoundly different results, as do proximity to a nearby color. Hue is different than value. On the other hand, it's good to know what you see is "approximately what others see". Remember, you are only agreeing that the gradient choices shown follow a range that travels from 1 direction to another. (It is a well designed test by the way congrats to whomever did it.
Take the Test: How Well Do You See Color?

One way you can get this fix to work better would be to cut the vinyl to shape leaving a border around the edge of the old vinyl. The hot glue will not damage the floor, however if the choice of vinyl you've made to lay down is a complementary color you can definitely make a more pleasing overlay. Then, seal all the way around the edge with a thin line of hot glue (you don't want schmutz sneaking in). You should be able to remove that easily while still having a nicer main area to view. A good planning tool is to put down butcher paper and shape it first, then use that template to cut out the vinyl. A rounded corner radius of 6" to 1' would be good and look far cleaner than a 90 degree corner and will look far more intentional as well (just use a big coffee can as your pattern for the round). Voila!
