Rivets size question

Today I noticed a rivet missing on the inside in the galley area ceiling. I'm not sure how long it has been missing. Does anyone know what size these rivets would be? I would like to get some replacements.

Interior rivets are almost all(99%) 1/8 inch aluminum rivets. 1/8" diameter 1/4" grip will work about 95% of the time. You can find them in most hardware stores. Make sure you get the aluminum ones, the arrow brand aluminum are all aluminum, some brands the aluminum rivets have steel mandrels, don't want those, you can check with a magnet.

You can check by seeing if 1/8" drill fits the hole nicely.
