escutcheon or plate or both?
I live in a condo and want to change the shower faucet and valve. A plumber told me that a larger hole would have to be cut in the shower wall around the valve to gain easier access to it. After the valve is replaced a large plate would cover the hole. My question is: would the escutcheon go over the plate or would the plate replace the escutcheon? Do the plates come in different finishes so that I can pick any finish I want for my fixtures?
