Let us calculate the **installation cost of a granite top for a kitchen platform** as shown below.

**Material rate: **

Cost of granite slab **👉 ** INR 180/- to 270/- per sq ft.

For the calculation purpose, let us consider the average rate = INR 225/-

**👉**INR 450/-

**👉**INR 550/-

**👉**INR 1500/- (approx)

**Labor rate:**

**👉**INR 36/- to 48/- per sq ft.

For the calculation purpose, let us consider the average installation rate = INR 42/- per sq ft.

Molding rate **👉 ** INR 150/- to 200/- per r ft.

For the calculation purpose, let us consider the average molding rate = INR 175/- per r ft.

**Calculation:**

**Area of granite top **

= [(8 ft. 🇽 2.16 ft.) + (6 ft. 🇽 2.16 ft.) ]

= [ 17.28 sq ft. + 12.96 sq ft.]

= **30.24 sq ft.**

**Total cost of granite slab**

= [ total area 🇽 rate/sq ft.]

= [ 30.24 sq ft. 🇽 225/-]

= **INR 6804/-**

**Labor cost:**

**The cost of installing granite top**

= [ total installation area 🇽 labor rate/sq ft.]

= [ 30.24 sq ft. 🇽 42/-]

= ** INR 1270/-**

The total length of molding will be the total exposed front edge of the granite.

= [2.16 ft. + 8 ft. + ( 6 ft. - 2.16 ft.) + 2.16 ft.]

= **16.16 r ft.**

**Total cost of molding**

= [ total length 🇽 rate/ r ft.]

= [ 16.16 r ft. 🇽 175/-]

= **INR 2,828/-**

**Let us calculate the total installation cost in a table format.**

Note: To get accurate results, insert your regional market rate of materials & labor, in the above table.

** Installation cost per sq ft. **

= [total cost ÷ Granite installation area]

= [13,752 ÷ 30.24]

= **INR 455/- per sq ft.**

**Thank you for going through these calculation steps❤. Have a good day 😄.**
