Planning a kitchen or bathroom renovation often involves choosing the right countertops that fit your budget. Our Countertop Cost Calculator simplifies this process, providing you with a quick estimate of the cost of your countertop project.

## Formula

The formula to calculate the cost of countertops is straightforward:

## Example

Let’s say you want to install a countertop with a length of 6 feet and a width of 2.5 feet, and the cost per square foot of the chosen material is \$40. Using our calculator:

Total Cost = 6 ft × 2.5 ft × \$40/sq. ft = \$600
