Switching from 2-handle to 1-handle bathroom faucet


I currently have a Price Pfister Chrome 2-Handle Bathroom Faucet. I'd like to replace it with a Single-Handle faucet. Is this something that can be done without costing an arm and a leg?

Suggest verifying that the one handle faucet will not interfere with your bending over to wash your face or cupping your hand to rinse your mouth after brushing your teeth. We have lived with two handle faucets all of our lives and whenever we go to a friend's home for a party or something and if they have a one handle faucet, I check out what I mentioned. Have not found one that is as convenient as our small faucet with two handles yet. I hate bumping my forehead against faucets but then that's just me with my old two handle faucet habits.

Your milage will vary,

The cost for your project basically depends on how expensive the faucet is...there's not too much other cost invloved.

How old are your hoses/valves? Are the valves able to shut off water to the sink properly?

I'm not sure about the age of the valves and hose, but they do work.

Thanks for your suggestions. Will definitely keep them in mind.

If the hoses aren't the newer, braided metal ones, i'd replace them too.

They're not the new metal braided ones. Thanks for the suggestion. I've learned a lot just by joining the DIYCHATROOM! Thanks Andrew!
