The biggest advantage of integrated kitchen appliances is that its seamless design will fit with the aesthetic of your kitchen and white appliances won’t look out of place between your stylish units. It can also make cooking and food prep much easier too.

If you are planning on having a new kitchen installed then you will have no doubt thought about having integrated kitchen appliances. If you’ve never had integrated appliances before then you might be a bit sceptical about the cost and reliability, but there are a number of advantages. If you are thinking about a new kitchen then we explain why you should consider integrated appliances to provide the perfect finish.

What Are Integrated Kitchen Appliances?

If you are unfamiliar with integrated kitchen appliances then these are appliances that have been housed behind kitchen cupboard doors. This gives your kitchen a seamless design and hides away the appliances so you don’t have any break in the design. This can also include a wide range of appliances from large white goods like fridges and washing machines, to smaller appliances like microwaves. This is ideal for some people who don’t like the look of white goods in their kitchen as it breaks up the design. Integrated appliances are particularly popular if you are going for a classic kitchen design where appliances might look out of place.

 What Are the Advantages of Integrated Kitchen Appliances?

One of the biggest advantages of integrated appliances is that they complete the aesthetic and look of your kitchen but there are also other benefits too. We have put together some of the top five benefits to having integrated appliances that you might not have thought about.

  1. Open Plan Kitchen

A big benefit with integrated appliances is that you can keep an open plan and spacious kitchen area that’s perfect for dining and cooking. If you opt for standalone appliances then you might have to fit these in at the end of your kitchen units or in a different part of your kitchen which can end up encroaching on your space. This is particularly useful if you have a kitchen/diner or even a breakfast table in your kitchen. It can also save a lot of room if you are planning on having an island in your kitchen too.

  1. Seamless Design

As previously mentioned, one of the biggest advantages of having an integrated kitchen design is that you will have a seamless design. It completes a perfect aesthetic that means your kitchen design is not spoiled by white goods or appliances. If you are opting for integrated appliances then you should choose these before your kitchen is designed to make sure that they fit within your final kitchen design.

  1. Resale Factor

Although you can’t take integrated appliances with you when you move home, you will more than likely get this money back with a higher asking price. One of the most common things that people are willing to pay more for when buying a new home is a good kitchen. You will more than likely improve your resale factor and get a higher price for the sale of your property when moving home if you have integrated appliances.

  1. Easy Cooking

Having integrated appliances and ovens can make cooking much easier and more efficient and is ideal if you are an eager cook. Being able to place your cooker and hob exactly where you want them in the kitchen means you are not confined to one corner of the kitchen. Built in appliances can be placed anywhere in the kitchen so you can arrange your kitchen exactly how you want it. Your hob and oven can also be separate which is perfect if you plan on having a kitchen island.

  1. Easy Cleaning

It also makes cleaning your kitchen much easier as you don’t have any nooks or gaps between units and appliances where dirt and food can reside. The seamless design of your kitchen means you can easily clean hobs with the rest of the kitchen worktops. This makes for a more hygienic cleaning environment and it means that cleaning your kitchen is a much easier task. You can also maintain your units and cupboards much easier too.

Conclusion

With plenty of advantages to integrated kitchen appliances, it is definitely something that you should consider when installing a new kitchen. Although integrated can sometimes be more expensive and in some cases more expensive to replace, it can really help to achieve the perfect kitchen that you are looking for.
