From Measurement to Vision: The Templating Phase of Our Countertop Project

Templating Countertops

Two days after our design consultation with Lakeside Surfaces, our farmhouse kitchen makeover took another exciting leap forward. A skilled measurement technician arrived to meticulously laser measure our countertops, turning our vision into precise dimensions. This crucial templating phase not only ensured accuracy but also presented opportunities to refine our choices and enhance the overall aesthetic of our kitchen.

Choosing the Right Corner Radius:

Corner Radius Countertops

As the technician delved into the measurements, he introduced us to the concept of corner radiuses and edge profiles —a detail often overlooked but capable of significantly influencing the overall feel of the space. While the standard choice is a 1-inch radius, we were keen on infusing a softer, more inviting ambiance into our kitchen. After thoughtful consideration, we opted for a 2-inch corner radius, a choice that promises to add a touch of grace to our countertop edges.

Navigating Sink Size Challenges:

As the technician worked his magic, a surprising revelation unfolded. The sink replacement we initially chose proved too large for the countertop depth. Rather than seeing this as a setback, it presented an opportunity to explore Lakeside Surfaces’ extensive catalog of sinks and faucets. After careful consideration, we fell in love with a granite composite sink in a sophisticated Gunmetal color—a soft black or charcoal gray. We believe this choice will not only be visually stunning but will also harmonize effortlessly with the gold fixtures we’ve selected.

The Allure of a Full-Height Backsplash:

In the spirit of elevating the aesthetic coherence of our kitchen, the technician proposed the idea of a full-height backsplash using the same quartz material as our countertops. This suggestion resonated with us, envisioning a seamless and visually striking backdrop that ties the entire space together. The decision to extend the quartz material to the full height of the backsplash not only adds a touch of luxury but also simplifies maintenance by minimizing grout lines.

A Glimpse into the Future:

As the templating phase concludes, our excitement continues to build. The meticulous measurements and thoughtful decisions made during this stage set the foundation for a kitchen transformation that goes beyond mere aesthetics. The 2-inch corner radius, the Gunmetal granite composite sink, and the full-height quartz backsplash are just a glimpse into the carefully curated details that will soon bring our farmhouse kitchen to life.
