Let’s take a look at some of the pros and cons of freestanding appliances.
WHAT IS A FREESTANDING APPLIANCE?
A freestanding appliance is one that can stand on its own. It is not attached to any of the kitchen units. Freestanding appliances are fully visible, and they can be placed in any large enough space in your kitchen.
ADVANTAGES OF BUILT-IN APPLIANCES
- They are concealed and do not disrupt the design and flow of your kitchen. They create a seamless look but give you instantaneous access.
- They are kept in place by the surrounding units. This reduces the amount of wobble, and the door can reduce noise.
- You have more power-source options. For example, you can mix and match built-in electric and gas ovens and hobs more easily.
DISADVANTAGES OF BUILT-IN APPLIANCES
- Not so many brands make built-in appliances, so you have less choice and more expense compared to freestanding models.
- They can be harder and more expensive to install, requiring an electrician or other professional.
- Built-in appliances can be harder to repair. Engineers will charge more to repair or service them as a result.
- Because a built-in appliance is harder to remove, you do not have as much freedom to remove them and take them with you when you move home.
