Looking for idea to cover holes cut in center console

I want to cover up holes cut for switches into the center console. There are four of them right underneath the shifter location. The original switches were nothing fancy just basic rockers and I tossed them. I made a custom switch panel and installed new rockers in the dash. Unfortunately I now I have four rectangle cut outs. Any ideas on what I might be able to do with this space to cover the holes?

Sure, make a custom blank panel.

Reuse the space for other things. Depending on room here are some ideas: another 12v outlet, 3 amp USB phone charging outlet, heated seat switch, an aux input for the stereo.

In fact, to put a couple of these ideas together, here is a seat warmer that works with the USB outlet and is advertised to "keep your cottontail toasty".

at thus point I just want the area to be blank. It's an area that is too easy to accidentally hit them on. My toddler also tends to hit them so I need to clear out the area
