Workarounds to use single handle bathroom faucet with 8" pre-drilled holes?
I am trying to buy a readymade 49" granite vanity countertop (to have someone else cut down and install), and all the ones I've been able to find online or in the big box stores are pre-drilled for 8" widespread faucets. I need to get a single-handled faucet that's ADA compliant (I have hand problems), but they only seem to come in 4" centerset or single hole variations. I wondered whether I could find an 8" cover plate (or deck plate, or escutcheon) that would fit over any single-hole, single-handle bathroom faucets to cover up the 2 extra holes, rather than abandoning the idea of the granite countertop. But I'm not sure the center hole on the couple of cover plates I've found online would be wide enough to allow for the single handled faucets I've seen. And I'm not sure how this might look. The only readymade vanity countertops I've found that come predrilled with the 4" spread or a single hole are in either cultured marble or Swanstone, and I'd really prefer granite. If anyone has any advice about this, I'd really appreciate it. If all else fails, I guess I'd need to get custom-cut granite for my 46.5" vanity countertop. TIA for any replies. marilano
