That said, here are some creative ideas on how you can use broken tiles.
Create art with broken tiles
You can use broken tiles to make beautiful art pieces that you can hang around the house. You only need to be a bit creative. Start by creating a sketch of what you want to make.

Embellish your sink countertop with broken tiles
Regular sink countertops have no aesthetic appeal. You could paint your faucets with eye-catching colors to elevate the look of your bathroom, but this does cost money. You would need to buy the paint, a sealant, and other tools for the paint job.
A cheap way to spruce up your sink countertop to give your bathroom a gorgeous look is by using broken tiles. Be as creative as you can and use tiles with different colors to give your countertop that wow factor. You can create a pattern of your choice with the tiles to make your sink really stand out.
Create tile placemats
You can use small broken tiles of varying colors or a single tile to create a placemat you can use in your home. This is a project that is not time-consuming unless, of course, you intend on making many placemats for selling.
Tabletop creations with broken tiles
If you have a dull-looking table at home, why not give it a lift and make it stand out with broken tiles. You can use broken tiles of the same color or different colors to decorate the tabletop. You can go further by creating unique patterns of leaves, trees, or animals.
Go wild, and be as creative as possible. You may surprise yourself.
