How do I measure for counter tops if it comes in pieces that have diaganal cuts?

Hello Shari,

You measure it on the wall side of the counter from the end to the back corner of each piece. I would suggest that you have the contractor or instalation company do it though, as a small mistake can be costly if you do it and provide the measurements to them. There are often other factors that come into play, such as checks in the wall for plumbing low windows over the sink and replaceing the old arborite counters with the new prefab ones as the old ones are NOT standard sizes.

Hope this helps,

H iShari,

Have the people who construct the countertop come out and measure this for you. They will be able to make a countertop that fits your needs perfectly.
