How to Measure the Square Footage for Estimation Purpose?
Our goal is to make it easy for you to measure the square footage of your existing kitchen countertops or bathroom vanity tops for an estimation. These measurements are for estimation purposes only, we will not cut your new countertops according to these measurements!
We will send a measuring professional with a digital measuring device to take the final measurements that we use for fabricating your new granite countertops.
The following are example diagrams of various kitchen shapes that we have installed in the St. Louis metropolitan area. You will most likely find a kitchen that is similar to your own in the diagrams below, and you will be able to easily measure your countertops with a tape measure. It does not make a significant difference if your measurements are ½” off here or there because this is purely for estimation purposes.
How to Calculate Square Feet from the Measurement in Inches
For example, say the length of the countertop is 108” and the depth of the standard countertop (on a 24” deep cabinet) is 25 ½”;
108” X 25.5” = 2,754 (Divide this number by 144)
2,754/144 = 19.12 Sq Ft
Please note that granite countertops have a 1 ½” standard over hang from the face of the cabinets. This is about ½” longer than the conventional overhang used with laminate countertops.
Please let us know if you have a very complex kitchen or if the overhangs you are planning for your new granite countertops are difficult to measure. An Arch City Granite project manager will be glad to make a no-obligation in-home estimate for you.
