Kitchen Faucet on utility sink

I would like to replace an old and leaking faucet on the utility/laundry sink with a single lever one, however, for some reason, these are insanely expensive. The cheapest I found is over $150. Kitchen faucets with single lever, on the other hand, I could buy as low as $30, with a sprayer.

I know nothing is easy as it seems, especially in home improvement. Is there something that will keep me from accomplishing my goal? Thanks.

I have exactly that on the utility sink I installed. Its actually a pretty fancy pull out sprayer style with a white finish. But hey...it was on clearance for about $40 as I remember.

On an existing install..you need to make sure the new will cover any existing holes. My sink came with no holes...so I was good to go.

Also..you may find that the volume of water from a normal kitchen faucet is not as great as a utility faucet. I don't think they fall under the same rules....

This worked out better than I even expected. For $20 bucks I picked up a new kitchen faucet on e-bay and was able to use the same holes on the utility sink, adding one more. I was even able to use the same pipe connectors from the old faucet. Now my utility sink looks too ugly, and worn for my new and shiny faucet.
