Integrated or freestanding?



A freestanding dishwasher offers a more affordable option to your new kitchen space. The features and specification are usually the same as an integrated model. You can opt for finishes such as; white, silver, black or stainless steel so you will be sure to find one that will fit in with your new kitchen scheme.

Freestanding models are also available in the same sizes as an integrated dishwasher. If you already have a freestanding dishwasher and are not looking to change your appliance our designers are able to design your new kitchen around existing appliances.



Integrating your dishwasher is a perfect way to maintain the sleek appearance of your new kitchen. You also have the option to fully integrate your appliance where all controls are hidden or to semi-integrate if you would prefer the control panel on the front.

Many integrated models offer new technology which displays a time remaining on to your kitchen floor and if you’re in to gadgets the AEG ComfortLift dishwasher features a mechanism to lift your lower rack with ease to assist with emptying and filling.
