So I have this problem. Looking for a way to patch these holes without changing the entire tiles:

The only thing that comes to my mind is to put a sticker over the problem in the first photo, and to change the wall socket to a larger one in photo two.

Still, I'd rather get some sort of plasticine or clay or blue tack or something that I can use to cover the holes nicely. Even if the color isn't 100% the same, doesn't matter.

Any ideas?

This is what I do when I have holes in my wall

But with smaller ones like yours, I just use the plaster without the patch

Who decorated your place? So many problems.
Was it some one doing DIY?

I would get some filler and and try to match the colour. Nothing you can do apart from new tiles. Depends what look you want.

I just bought the place, I don't know who did the works.

I don't wanna change the tiles. Frankly I'd rather change the wall socket to a bigger one to cover that hole, and put some sort of sticker on the other hole, and call it a day.

We'll see what happens. I bought a hammer the other day so now I can pretty much do anything I want in the world :D

First photo, place a socket over it. Won't be a working one but at least it looks as if it supposed to be there.

Second photo, get some filler and a special colouring pen to match the colour of the tile. Not sure what they are called but you can find them at most DIY stores.

I'm not gonna place a socket over it bro. That's not cool :D

Yeah, filler, if only the filler I need would just knock on my door and enter :p

I think it's just a hole and should be completely ignored. Lifes too short

Just use normal filler and then get the colour right using one of those special pens, they are like crayons.

Glory hole :eek:

My most respectful thread has been dragged through the mud now. Good job sir :D

Make sure you turn off the electric first.
You can buy something call chalk in the uk which can fill a hole and you can paint over.


You think that’s big enough for you?

Meh, I can't turn off electricity, I have computers running that cannot be disturbed.

Sure, I can try to find the right switch for that specific socket, or for the bathroom, but what a hassle that is.

Too much hassle. I'll YOLO it :D

I googled "normal filler", I got results about filler injections for like facelifts and stuff. Too much hard :D

If the hole is THAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT big of a deal and you absolutely cannot live with it existing alongside you, Do what every slumlord has done in the past. Get a wide piece of white paper masking tape, cover hole, and paint it the same color as the wall. Assuming you don't have kids that will poke a hole in it, it will last a decade lol

Then do not replace any sockets till you are 100% sure you have isolated it. If not then you will get fried.

Im not gonna get fried. You cant fry whats already been fried :D

Besides, thats never happened to anyone in the history of the world

All roads of good intentions lead to duct tape and masking tape

Indeed :D
