 1970s brass tub faucet and decorative plate behind it
Author: bdagolfer (FL)

As I thought, when I removed the decorative plate it was covering an older faucet set up, and so if I take it off, when replacing the hardware, there will be gaping holes either side of the faucet. I hope someone out there knows what I am talking about..........
I am hoping to not disrupt the tile work and replace the fixture(brass) with brushed chrome fixture.

You'll need to stay with the same method for installing a new faucet (cover plate) or retile and install whatever faucet you choose.

It is confusing, because if the plate covers the opening now, it will do so after the installation, or maybe with the use of a new cover plate. A picture would show us what you are referring to and what you are working with.
