And this is our guide to everything you should know about traditional kitchens and integrated appliances.

What are integrated kitchen appliances?

Integrated kitchen appliances involves creating kitchen cabinets for the appliances to be placed within. As a result, most of your kitchen appliances, are hidden from view behind made to measure cabinets, while some, like the oven, remain on show but are built in to the cabinet framework.

What are the benefits of integrated kitchen appliances for traditional kitchens?

For traditional kitchens in particular, an integrated approach can be incredibly effective. There are several benefits, including:

  • A uniform look- for traditional kitchens, a lot of visual emphasis is placed on the small design details. And the overall effect can be spoiled by obvious kitchen appliances taking centre stage. This is because most kitchen appliances are not designed to fit with traditional designs, and instead are very contemporary in appearance. Positioning these inside a cabinet framework however can create a uniform, traditional look for your kitchen, which can be stunning.
  • Save space- by integrating the appliances with the kitchen cabinets, you can make a small kitchen look tidier and neater, and save on floor space. This is because the appliances are integrated into what would have been cupboard space, reducing the amount of space these can take up.
