HOW TO MEASURE KITCHEN COUNTERS & PRICE YOUR OWN JOB
3 Simple Steps
STEP 1 - Find or borrow a tape measure, or spend $5 at a hardware or box store.
STEP 2 - Measure length (end-to-end), & depth (wall to edge) of each "Area".*
*An Area is a counter section forming a square or a rectangle. For L-shaped counters, the 1st leg is Area 1, and the 2nd is Area 2 (like the drawing above).
Measure to the 1/4 inch. You don't have to be too precise.
Extend angled areas to form rectangles or squares (see the drawing just above).
STEP 3 - Length x depth of each Area = square inches. Divide by 144 to get square feet (SF).
HERE'S AN EXAMPLE:
Island 84-1/4" x 36" = 3,033 square inches, divided by 144 = 21.06 square feet. EASY, YES?
Add-up square-footage for all Areas, & multiply by our labor cost of $28 SF.
