How to Measure for New Countertops

A Simple Sketch and a Few Measurements

When you’re ready to replace kitchen or bathroom countertops, we’re here to help. We only need a drawing with measurements to give you an estimate for a countertop material of your choice.

Start by drawing your countertop sections in rectangles. Next, measure the lengths and widths in inches and write them down on your sketch. Make sure to indicate sink and appliance locations. Include backsplashes if you want them. An average splash is about 3-4″ high and a full-height splash measures up to the bottoms of your upper cabinets. This short video shows you how to prepare measurements for a basic estimate:

Also, let us know if you’ll need removal and disposal services for your old countertops.
