Install the flooring as usual until reaching a vent opening in the subfloor. Lay the flooring panel over the opening, making sure it is locked into place or flush with the adjacent flooring. Measure the vent. Then, measure how much the flooring panel covers the vent opening. Divide the difference of the vent and opening by two, in both the length and width—in order to ensure the vent will be centered with the opening when the flooring is cut. Using the vent as a template, with a pencil mark the flooring around the outside perimeter, where you’ve determined it should fit to be centered in the opening. Cut the flooring, keeping in mind to leave just enough room for the vent to fit within the cutout. Repeat the process for the other side of the vent opening.

In order for our vents to finish flush with the floor, you’ll need to cut a perimeter in the flooring around the existing vent opening. First, center the vent over the opening and mark the perimeter with a pencil—making sure it’s square with joints in the flooring or walls. Then, use a router or circular saw set to the thickness of the flooring and cut around the opening—careful not to overcut in the corners. Use a chisel to finish the corners. Next, use painters’ tape and paper to protect the flooring around the new opening and spray paint the subfloor black. Once the paint dries, lay the vent down and enjoy!
