hi veronica if you can get identical taps then it would be easier alternatively get flexible connectors and cut pipes lower down you will need hacksaw [metal] £1.00 long tap spanner £6-15.00 maybe something to hold taps,, 2 spanners 0 to 1 1/4 inch, say £10 file £1 [metal] taps can be a barsteward to remove [ i can spell] then you will need ingenuity and more tools, the basin is not too bad but the cistern can be tricky if close coupled ie joined to pan , if seperate then its easier but water connection and overflow pipe may be in wrong place for new cistern all the best john
