How to Measure Radius Corners
We offer a range of options to help you order your ideal solid wood worktop, but occasionally we need some help from our customers to get things just perfect!
If you opt for the fashionable radius corner option within our bespoke service you may need to supply some measurements (though we also cut to standard supplied manufacturer’s radii). However, if you are trying to match your kitchen worktop to a curved corner already present in your space — say a door or a cabinet — please supply us with the model number and we can do our best to identify the measurements ourselves.
If it does transpire that you will need to supply the measurements for the radius corner, we do advise utilising a measuring square. If you do not have access to this kind of equipment, do not panic — we appreciate that the task can seem a little daunting! Never fear: there are other ways to obtain these measurements. Whatever the worktop — be it for a solid oak worktop or beech worktop — Worktop Express® have composed some easy-to-follow instructions for your convenience.
Taking the measurements
A little note about overhang…
If your worktop has overhang the radius size needs to be increased accordingly, so don’t forget to factor this in to your figures! All you need to do is add the desired overhang to the radius.
For example: if you had a 3M X 620mm X 40mm worktop with a curved cabinet on one corner with a radius of 250mm, plus a worktop with 20mm overhang, you will then need to increase the radius size by 20mm. The radius size for your worktop should therefore be 270mm.
If you want to order a worktop featuring radius corners, we recommend the use of our Online Worktop Customisation Tool. This tool makes it incredibly easy to design, price and order custom worktops in any of our timbers, whilst helping to speed-up the entire ordering process, too. Any worktop services ordered through the tool are also subject to a 10% discount, making our custom worktops great value for money.
