How to Measure Your Countertop

To use the proper measuring instructions, please determine whether you have a post form or a custom flat lay countertop. If you have a post form (integral backsplash and rounded nose) counter top please follow the instructions for measuring post form counter tops. If you have a counter top which is custom flat lay please follow the instructions for measuring flat lay countertop(s).

Measuring for Post Formed Countertops

This section is divided into two sections:


Measuring existing countertops
Measuring countertops for new cabinets


Measuring Existing Countertops

To ensure that your countertop is made the proper size take the following measurements. Measure each piece of countertop, ensuring that you measure to the nearest 1/16” Note: It is always best if possible to provide cabinet and countertop sizes to ensure that your countertop will be ordered correctly.


Step 1

  1. Along the back edge where the top meets the wall, measure your existing countertop’s dimension to determine the total length of each countertop piece. Note: if your countertop is an L shape or U shape you must measure into the corner for each section.
  2. Measure the amount of overhang that has been allowed, for each finished end. (from the end of the cabinet to the end of the finished end)
  3. Measure your existing countertop depth from the back wall to the front edge of your countertop
  4. Measure the amount of overhang from the front of the cabinet doors to the outside front edge of your countertop.
  5. Measure the height of the backsplash on your countertop from the deck of your existing countertop to the top of the existing backsplash. Indicate if there is a tile, paint, mirror or a wallpaper line that needs to be met.

\"Reminder\"Important reminder. The depth of kitchen tops and vanity tops will differ. Countertops can be made to specific sizes but there are industry standards. Kitchen counters are a standard size of 25 1⁄2” overall depth with a backsplash height of 2 7/8”. Vanity counters are a standard size of 22 1⁄2 overal depth with a backsplash height of 3 1/8”

Step 2

  1. For bar tops, measure the width (see illustration 27 5/8), and the total length from the wall to the end of the bar top (75” in illustration)
  2. Measure the bar top length from the wall to where the arc, or curve begins (72” in illustration). The difference will be the size of the arc (75” – 72” = 3” arc)
  3. Bar or peninsula tops must be ordered wider than a counter which butts up against a wall as overhang will be required for the front and the back of the cabinet. Countertops that butt up to a wall at the back will only need to have overhang added for the front of the cabinet. The mitre will be cut to accommodate these different depths.
  4. The general rule of thumb is to calculate the difference in depths between the two tops and add that measurement to the narrower top for an overall size.
  5. Please be aware that the backsplash will stop shorter than the outside edge of the bar top (by the difference in the counter depths). The angled cut on the backsplash will automatically be finished.

Bar or peninsula counters are a standard size of 27 5/8 but can be custom made to fit a specific size requirement.

Step 3

\"StepTo measure for diagonal corner counter tops, measure point A and point B and point C and point D. Remember to measure to the wall, including the depth of the backsplash. Also ensure that you’ve measured points 1 to 2, 3 to 4, 5 to 6 and 2 to 7. Refer to the diagram to help the measuring instructions

Step 4

\"StepFor counters that meet in the corner, to help with the installation process  measure the squareness of the walls. At the point where the two walls meet, measure out to 3 feet on one wall and make a mark. On the opposite wall measure out to 4 feet and make a mark. Then, measure the cross distance between the two wall points.

A true 90 degree corner should measure 60” across. If your measurement is greater or less than 60” please indicate.

Step 5

Indicate where finished ends are required Finished ends are available in 2 styles- profile and regular, with various options to finish bar or peninsula tops. Refer to the following illustrations to choose the right finished end for your application. En
