How to fill holes in bathroom tile?


I removed towel racks in my tiny bathroom leaving holes visible. I filled the holes with clear fill but they still bother me. Does anyone have a creative way to mask or hide them?

    You might consider putting decals over them in an attractive pattern. Amazon has a good selection, or a craft store.

    Another idea could be stencils.

    Purchase some small decorative tile, like 2 X 2 square and use adhesive or silicone to put on top. I purchased some terra cotta seashell tiles in small squares. You could even add a row of them where the towel bar was.

    Find some decorative tiles and glue over holes and then around sink.

      Yes, thank you. I thought of that too but not around the sink. Thank you.

    Are the holes in the tile? Can you find a matching tile, maybe in a cupboard or behind the toilet? Take the tile out with the holes and put a new one in. We did that and it wasn't hard...just have to re-grout the new tile you have put in. If the holes are in the wall only, then just paint it the color of your walls.

      Great idea. I'm not sure I'm talented enough to do what you suggest but I have seen that on home improvement shows. Thank you for your help.

    If you didn’t use silicone to fill them, but rather clear Painter’s Caulk, mix up some matching touch up paint.

    I realize not everyone can have the “eye” to do that, so go grab a dozen paint chips from the local DIY stores and narrow down what it’s close-to.

    You can usually find your paint color behind a switch plate. You only need a small piece to have it color matched and buy the small sample size at HD.
