Island Types: Cooking

A cooktop on an island turns the chef toward the center of the room so that he can keep an eye on the action. But unlike a range by a wall, a cooking island leaves hot pans more exposed and will cost more to ventilate.

Price: These built-ins are bigger than sink islands and typically cost $1,200 to $7,000, not including the cooktop or counter.

Similar to shown: Semi-custom maple island with cabinets and open shelves, 30 by 60 inches, about $1,200; HomeCrest Cabinetry
