Question DetailsAsked on 5/29/2014

What should be the price range for a custom-made kitchen island (including materials, labor and installation)?

Our idea is a simple rectangular island (36"x72"), with a plain granite countertop, no sink, no stove, with 2 large drawers and couple shelves for books and a wine cooler (that I already own).

Since none of the specialty remodel contractors who haunt this site have answered I will give you a ballpark - depends of course on quality of materials used, but for "dry" island (no water supply or sink but with electrical outlet for cooler), might run about $1000-2000 for the cabinetry installed (assuming easy wiring pull from nearby circuit), plus $1-2,000 for the granite countertop depending on quality and exotic pricing factor. Premanufactured ones cost about $1000 on up with wood or laminate countertop, so in some cases people use them and retop them, but since you want to fit your cooler likely a custom build is what you want.

Depending on your kitchen wiring, if you are looking at utility outlet also for mixer or coffee maker or such, could add from $100 to $600 range commonly, depending on whether they can use same low-amperage tap as cooler, or have to do a new "home run" back to the circuit breaker box with a new circuit, which would likely be the case the way most kitchens are wired.
