Draw a diagram of your countertop space on the graph paper provided with the Countertop Measure Guide or Worksheet forms (see below). If you prefer, you can use a separate piece of paper.
Include the spaces for your sink, dishwasher, cooktop, bar sink, etc.
Indicate where the walls are in the space (if possible). Add half-walls for island or peninsula tops.
Now measure the dimensions of each countertop section in inches, both length and depth. Be sure to round all numbers to the nearest half-inch.
Multiply the length times the depth for each section of your countertop to get each section area in square inches. *Standard countertop depth is 26 inches (including overhang for cabinets and hardware).
Record your measurements in the table provided for each section of your countertop.
Total each countertop section and then divide by 144 to calculate square footage.
Next add the square foot totals for each section to get your countertop total. Round up to the nearest whole number.
If you want to add a backsplash, apply the same formula used to calculate your countertop. Simply measure from corner to corner and then measure the desired height you want from the base of where the counter starts.
Use the countertop estimating forms below. Choose Option 1 (allen + Roth form, 4 pages) or Option 2 (Lowe's form, 2 pages).
