Measuring Your Countertop
We have supplied some common shapes and configurations please use them as a
guide to help you layout the dimensions of your kitchen and bath countertops.
Whether you are replacing old countertops or starting with new cabinets and
countertops, a complete layout will be needed to place your order.
When measuring your existing countertops, cabinet
dimensions are not always necessary, but to ensure order accuracy, it is a good
idea to provide cabinet measurements. Before ordering, be sure to specify which
measurements you have brought in.
Standard countertops usually overhang the front edge of cabinets by
1-1/4" to 1-1/2". Our countertops are manufactured to give a
1-5/16" front overhang to standard 24" kitchen and 18" to
21" vanity cabinets. Keep in mind that this may be different on
your existing countertops.
Always measure "outside" dimensions (this means from one back
corner of a cabinet to the other back corner). Being consistent when
measuring all sections helps to reduce any confusion when the pieces are
ordered. Corner cabinets set at an angle present one of the only
situations where an "inside" measurement may be necessary.
Specific appliance locations and exposed countertops end(s), be sure proper
end treatments are ordered. When supplying sink cut dimensions, always
measure from the right most corner of the countertop piece or cabinet run,
that the hole will be cut in.
