Okay, I'm starting to think about replacing the faucet entirely.
Never done that before.
This seems to be the closest to what I have that I could find.
Can I just as well go with a one-handed faucet - like this?

Thanks : )

I would step it a little more and get a brand like Moen. You might need a wrench too.
Have a look under there and see how hard it will be to get the nuts off. If it looks tricky buy one of these.

They will have some for less than $20 too.

While you're under the lav you might also consider changing the angle stops to the ball-valve style and the water flex feeds to the anti-burst products.

You should be able to loosen the faucet nuts with a channel locks.
