Prices of Kitchen Islands
Prices for kitchen islands are all over the place, ranging from under $100 to over $2000. The price you pay will depend on several different factors, including size, material, and purpose. There are some that can be installed and others that are more like tall tables, and that, too, will be a factor in price. Listed below are the prices for portable pieces and built-in pieces.
Prices for portable kitchen islands
There is a wide range of prices when it comes to portable kitchen islands. Small ones are often available at some of the big box stores for under $100. These less expensive models are often not made of the best quality materials, but if you're in a pinch, they work for the short term. You can find higher quality models in most furniture stores and some kitchen design centers for anywhere from $200 to $2000, depending on the size and materials used. The main disadvantage to this style is the same as its advantage, it can move, some even come with wheels. This may be a good option for people who have the need to be able to change position, but not such a good idea for people with children because of tipping hazards.
Prices for permanent kitchen islands
Kitchen islands that are installed permanently, though much more expensive than portable models-several hundreds to several thousands of dollars more, actually, are a good option for larger spaces. These pieces are often added in newly constructed homes, which is actually a less expensive option than having one added after the fact. Permanent kitchen islands do have their advantages. They can be equipped with job specific appliances such as a built-in sink and cutting board for food prep or even a cook-top. Also, because they are permanently installed in the floor, there isn't the tip-over risk of portable models.
