    First I need to replace the tile which has the new flush button, and then I need to secure the small panel of tiles that was cut out in order to access the cistern.

    Question 1; it would make life easier if I could get something for around the flush button to hide the holes where the old button used to be. Does anyone know of anything that would do this?

    Question 2; I'm thinking I might glue some sort of trim around the outer edge of that small panel of tiles so the cistern can be accessed easier in future. Does anyone have any better ideas of how to achieve a smart solution for future access via a panel please?

    Thank you in advance.

    Is it not accessed from the top by removing the shelf?

    It is, but it's still difficult to get to the cistern/flush pipe etc.

    I would consider modifying the top so it's possible to lift it off, even if only to allow your hand to reach down and twist some swivel type tabs that could hold the tile on?

    To hide the holes, you could do a search on a boat chandler's site to see if you could find a suitable stainless steel surround?
    Or

    And drill the centre, polish and glue
