It would be much nicer, plus better from a water efficiency perspective, to have an all-in-one on/off handle. So we're replacing our faucet.
Yes, it's not the cheapest thing; faucets can get very pricey! But we have found single-handle faucets as low as $80, and some quite nice faucets with high arched faucet spouts (great for washing pots!) for about $150.
This seems like a small investment for something you use many times a day, especially if you plan to be in your rental for a long time. Plus, if your faucet is a true piece of junk, and it really needs to be replaced, your landlord may let you pick out a much nicer one and cover at least some of the cost.
And as far as installation goes, a new faucet is usually quite simple to install! We'll show you our own process of replacing a faucet a little later this week.
What do you think? Would you replace a faucet in a rental kitchen?
