One of the easiest ways to refresh your bathroom or kitchen is to install new benchtops. 

To compare prices of countertop materials, such as granite and laminate, you will have to provide contractors with the approximate size of your countertop space.

This means you will have to measure your countertop yourself, but don’t worry, it’s easy.

All you’ll need to do is measure the length and width of your existing countertop and cabinets, and include the measurements of your backslash if you have one.

Then, sketch a rough drawing of the space and include the approximate locations of your stove top, sink, dishwasher, refrigerator and so on and your ready to get a quote. 

Although a professional will measure your countertops before cutting the materials, it is still important to be as accurate as possible when measuring for yourself to obtain a faithful quote. Follow the two steps described below to obtain an accurate quote.

  • Step 1: Measure the length of the existing countertop by measuring along the wall from one edge to the other.
  • Step 2: Measure the width of the existing countertop by measuring from the back wall to the front finished edge of the countertop. - Be sure to include the thickness of the backsplash if there is one.

Note: Every rounded piece of countertop should be measured like it was rectangular. Always measure from the furthest distance possible on the rounded sides.
