    Hi - looking for something suitable to simply cover the hole for the sink overflow. I don't need it connected up to the waste so just want to use somehing to fill it and make it look nicer.

    Could anyone recommend something? The hole is approx 30mm wide.

    Many Thanks

    Thank you for all the great suggestions!

    Sorry if it's a stupid question but based on the picture posted, if I was to get some sort of stopper, would I need access from behind the sink in order to successfully be able to screw the item on?

    Many Thanks

    You would need to get one hand in behind the sink to do the nut up on the back of the blanking plug. Usually this is just about accessible because an overflow and overflow pipe would normally be fitted there. Failing that, you could silicone the blanking plug in with some silicone/sealant just from the front. As it will not be required to hold pressure this should suffice if access is impossible.
