How Much Does it Cost to Install a Countertop?

Countertop Installation Cost Guide

The kitchen is one of the busiest areas in your home. If you’re in the market for new countertops, The Home Depot can help. This guide explains the costs associated with new countertop installation.


For reference, an average project covers a surface area of 40 square feet and features 25 linear feet of finished edges. Please be aware that the following estimates may differ depending on your city.

Countertop Edges

Countertop edges come in a variety of sizes and shapes. For a 2-centimeter (cm) thick countertop, you have the option of a 2-cm or 4-cm edge, while a 3-cm thick countertop typically has a 3-cm edge. 


Tip: Choosing an edge that’s larger than your countertop’s thickness is known as a built-up edge and comes with an additional charge, which isn’t included in our estimates.

  • No drip (for laminate countertops only) – A slight elevation in the edge prevents spills from reaching the floor. 
  • Waterfall – The countertop continues down the cabinetry’s side to reach the floor. 
  • Eased – A square, 90-degree edge that has been sanded down to achieve a softer look. 
  • Bevel – This edge features a slight, 45-degree angle edge, which adds visual intrigue to the countertops. 
  • Double Bevel – A double bevel has two beveled edges: one at the countertop’s surface and the other at its underside. 
  • Bullnose and Half Bullnose – These curved edges are a kitchen classic, whether you choose the striking full bullnose, with the edge fully rounded, or the half bullnose, with a curve that’s less dramatic.
  • Ogee – Featuring a stunning concave radius, the ogee edge offers an air of classic luxury that pairs well with granite countertops.  
  • Double Roundover – Very similar to the bullnose, this edge boasts a subtle curved radius on the top and bottom. 
Countertop Corner Treatments

If you’re not selecting a straight 90-degree corner, countertop corners can be customized by radius to appear more curved. A ¼-inch radius has a slight curve, while a 1-inch radius corner features significant rounding.
