Fix small chip in corner of porcelain tile

I chipped the corner of porcelain tile while I was cleaning joints for grout. It looks like it was a few flakes, but I'm hoping not to have to take up whole tile. What can I use to fix so it can't be noticed?

Hi Rambo,

If it's noticeable you should replace it now. It's not hard to do before it's grouted, a real bear afterward.

besides replacing you might get away with a Porcelain Chip Repair (only in white & almond),
car touch up paint to match or matching nail coloring.


* removing it now and knowing its not there is your best bet.

Some times you can find a nail polish that will match the color of the tile, It's worth a try.

Nail Polish, sometimes a sharpie works too.
