Try This Easy Fix If You Find An Unsightly Chip In Your Floor Tile
Ceramic or porcelain tiles are excellent for your kitchen floor, as they’re durable, stain-resistant and waterproof; however, it’s still possible for them to crack, chip, or break.
It’s easy to repair a chipped tile if you still have the piece that broke off. If you don't, you can still fix the problem, but it will be more difficult to match the tile’s color.
Ideally, you should keep spare tiles when you first install them. Then, just remove the damaged tile with a chisel, clean out the old adhesive and grout, and glue in the new tile.
If you don't have spare tiles, repair the broken tile by first cleaning it and the broken chip. Lightly sand all the edges, then glue the chip back in place with a ceramic epoxy.
If the chip is missing, fix the tile using a repair kit containing putty and various colors of paint. Fill the gap with the putty, let it dry, and then paint it to match the tile.
If you have expensive tiles needing repair, it’s worth your while to get a professional job done, as it’s difficult to match the tile’s color, texture, or pattern with a DIY kit.
