Will single hole faucet fit widespread center hole?


Hi, someone gave me a bathroom sink, and it has (as I'm learning) 3 holes which I was told were 8 inch widespread. I was told the faucets/ handles to fit this are 2 - 3X more expensive than a standard single hole faucet. Can I use a single hole faucet (the type with the lever attached to the faucet) with the center hole? I don't have a single in the house to "eyeball" to see if it may work or if hole sizes look standard across the different types. I can then get plugs or plates for the two unused holes I assume. Thanks much.

Not sure about that. Go look at faucets and be sure.

Probably. Go look at faucets.
At the big box stores they have them on display, almost an aisle of them, plus boxes underneath where if you need to look more closely, you can.

Go look at faucets.
You'll have to do that anyhow, to pick one out.
