There are many different factors that you have got to take into account when you are choosing between buying a freestanding and buying a built-in appliance.
Most of the main types of appliances are available as both built-in and freestanding: that is dishwashers, washing machines, washer dryers, ovens, cooker, fridges and fridge freezers. Almost all appliance models are available as a freestanding appliance but not nearly as many are able to be bought as a built-in version.
Freestanding appliances offer you far greater flexibility, and they tend to be the cheaper option of the two. On the other hand, built-in models are a little more pricy, but they are great if your goal is to achieve a seamless finish in your kitchen.
Which should I choose: Freestanding or Built-In?
Although, at the end of the day, the choice is yours and yours alone, when you are first deciding which kind of appliance you are going to buy, there are a few different factors that could well influence your final decision:
- What kind of a look do you want your finished kitchen to have? Do you want it to have a sleek and uniform feel, or will a visible appliance not bother you in the slightest?
- What is your overall budget for the kitchen renovation? You have to bear in mind that a built-in appliance will often be a lot more expensive and you may have to pay higher installation costs and buy a special unit.
- Are there any particular features that you require? The choice of built-in appliances is much lower, and their smaller size may affect your decision making
- Are you likely to be moving house again in the near future? If so, and you want to take your appliances with you then it will be harder with integrated ones.
- Do you like to have a good choice between different models, features, colours and sizes?
