Faucet talk: One handle or two?

Do you prefer your kitchen and bathroom faucets to have one handle or two? Why?

I know ... the topic that shook the world.

Kitchen: one
Bathroom: two

Why? Because that's the way it always was when I was growing up.

In the modern era, I prefer single handle faucets for convenient one-handed adjustment of water temperature.

Why did you repeat two of the poll options? One in kitchen, two in bathroom is the same as two in bathroom, one in kitchen.

I like the look of two handles much more than one so I voted 2 for both.

I second that. Same reason also, I think that is the norm though. That's how it is at my place.

I just replaced the kitchen faucet with a 1-handle job. But that was so I could convert the left hole to a soap dispenser and the right hole to a sprayer. I've ordered 2-handle faucets for the bathrooms.

I like the one handle faucets because you can turn them on with your wrist if your hands are dirty and not worry about touching the faucet. I think it is cleaner, especially when preparing food.

Single handle for kitchen and 2 handles for bathrooms. I think it just look better that way.
