Helo Ken - Martha in Westport had this same problem once. What she did was rip out the 'bad' tile(s) and insert in their place a matching tile that was more 'decorative'.

What I mean is ..., say for example, your tiles are light blue. You'd buy an off-white tile that has maybe a floral design or something on it to use as a replacement. You'd want to get a color and design that don't really draw your eye 'real hard' to the replacement tile. You kinda want it to 'accent' the other tiles. See??? If you're brave, you could 'rip out' some of the existing tiles and purposefully, and replace them with designer tiles. (Of course, you'd rip out ones that would 'make sense', perhaps in some sort of pattern.) And then you could keep the spares around in case any others get damaged. In fact, depending on how you go about this, you could use one or 2 of the ones you intentionally ripped out as your 'replacements' for this current job! (Maybe your broken tiles are at the floor. ANd maybe you want to add a few 'accent tiles' near the top of the vanity. After you remove the ones near the top of the vanity, use one or 2 of the ones you ripped out as replacements at the floor. See what I mean?)

Good luck! And you can thank Martha for this one.
