Cracked bathroom floor tiles. Is there a way to repair

by Kim30896378
Is there a simple way to repair these cracked floor tiles without removing and replacing? The damage was probably caused by the plumber dragging or dropping a heavy toilet unit. There is also a smaller crease crack in the second bathroom. Both bathrooms are similarly tiled wall to floor.
Main bathroom floor.

    I disguised some hairline cracks in my last house with paint. I had white tiles though. You might be able to get a small sample jar, or even those small bottles in the arts and crafts section. Brush over the crack an then wipe. Repeat until it stays in the crack. You might have to run a sealer pen over them so they don't wash away.

    How to Repair Holes or Cracks in Ceramic Tile

    Patching unwanted holes in glazed tile like this can be a tricky proposition. Here's a solution that may not always be perfect, but will make a big improvement. Polyester resin or auto body filler, often used to repair car bodies. Mix up a small batch by adding some hardener and stirring it thoroughly. Using a putty knife, press the resin into the hole slightly overfilling it. Then just as the material begins to harden while it's somewhat rubbery, trim off the excess with a razor blade.

    Next use 600 grit sandpaper to sand the filler smooth. Wetting the paper with water makes it work best. Now it's time to try and match the color of the tile. A porcelain touch up kit which is available at most home improvement centers comes with several different colors of paint. You can also use artists acrylic paints available from Michaels, Hobby Lobby, art supply stores, and online.

    The trick here is to mix these different colors together until we come up with one that matches the tile. Apply the paint with a small brush. You can test it on a nearby tile. When you get it the way you want it, then just paint over the patch and let that dry. Give it one final sanding with that very fine sandpaper and you'll have, well, maybe not a perfect match, but something that's a heck of a lot better than what you started with.

    Can you buy individual tiles to match? If so, remove the broken tiles and replace. Home Depot or Lowe's has white and cream colored tiles that size.

    Hi! Please consider negotiating the repair cost with the plumber. Of course, if he denies doing it, you may need to consider small claims court. You would need documentation, including estimates for the repair work. Good luck!
