Gluing small trim piece on top of tile
2 Attachment(s)
I tiled my bathroom wall and can't fit an escutcheon plate over the toilet water supply line. I have some leftover bullnose trim and figure this is a good solution to hide the pipe hole. I just want to stick on these little trim pieces with the corners mitered to create a nice square around the pipe. What should I use for glue? Or is this idea really dumb and there's a better solution?

Thank you!

I’d go for an epoxy there. Something like Latapoxy or one of the PC series. It’s not in an area that’s going to see much abuse. Thinset mortars don’t hold too well to the glazed tile surface.

I’d take an easier route and use silicone with some stout tape to hold the pieces in place while it sets.

But have you tried fitting a split flange escutcheon plate?

Could be kinda hard to replace that fitting were it to ever fail and/or need replacing, if you put that trim piece over the nut without ensuring adequate clearance to get a wrench on it...just a thought.

Yeah I didn't think thinset would work here.

There is no room between the nut and the wall for a escutcheon plate.

It is a brand new fitting and a 1/4 turn ball valve so it should be a loooong time before it need replacement. *knock on tile*

I like the silicone idea - given I already have plenty of that. Definitely an area that won't be touched much.
