Can I put a single mixer tap in a basin that has 3 holes? I've just bought a basin that has 3 holes. Can I put a single mixer in the centre one and plug the other 2 holes? I notice that the centre hole is smaller than the outer two. Thanks!

Smaller center hole could be an issue. Making the hole larger could be a project. – Justin K Oct 7 '13 at 21:28


Will it look good? Maybe.

Some single hole kitchen faucets have an escutcheon plate that will cover a standard 8 inch, 3 hole to allow you you mount a single hole.
