    I am getting new granite installed and mistakenly used the lavatory faucet size to get the holes made in the bar sink area. This is 8 inch widespread hole and the bar faucet is actually 4 inch spread and can be used for 1 or 3 hole faucet.
    I was wondering if it was possible to get a 8 inch cover plate with one single hole or get the two extra holes in granite filled. I am also open to any other suggestions in this area. Please advise.
    Thank you in advance.

    I think I would try to get a new widespread faucet that matches the 8" holes.

    IF the same company makes a kitchen faucet like it, then its cover plate may work. Otherwise you may have to change it to an 8" kitchen type faucet.

    faucet mistake

    Thank you all for your ideas, i am looking for a 8" center bar faucet in tuscon bronze or oil rubbed bronze. That is my first choice.

    +1 to the soap dispenser, or even a filtered water system (but that's a bit expensive heh!)

    The granite can be filled but it takes a very skilled guy to do it. go with the soap dispenser and everyone will think you are genius.

    He has TWO extra holes so the second one may be a lotion dispenser.
