Built-in appliances are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners who value a sleek, modern look in their kitchens. These appliances are installed directly into kitchen cabinetry, seamlessly blending in with the overall design of the room. Unlike freestanding appliances, built-in appliances are integrated into the kitchen's layout, which means that they can be customised to fit the exact space available.
Built-in appliances come in three types: built-in, built-under, and integrated. When searching for a new appliance, it's crucial to weigh their pros and cons to choose the best fit for your kitchen.
