Which size lavatory faucet do I need?

The spread's the thing, lav wise.

Lavatory, or bathroom, faucets are measured by the lavatory that they fit. The spread, or distance, between the holes in the lavatory determines the size of faucet needed. Spreads of 4", 6", 8", and 12" are common. Kitchen faucets, like lavatory faucets, are measured by the sink that they fit.
