One of the most frequently asked questions when buying a new washing machine is whether to choose an integrated or freestanding model. Freestanding washing machines are great as they can go anywhere there is a space and the front of the appliance is visible, and with today's current stylish appliances which are on offer a washing machine can look really attractive in your home. What if you do not want to see the front of the appliance, or wanted to keep your kitchens current design? Then an integrated washing machine is just what you need for your kitchen.

The beauty of an integrated washing machine is that it won't change your desired layout in the kitchen, you won't see the front of the appliance, or the washing spinning inside - everything is neatly hidden out of sight making it really easy for you to pop the wash load on and forget about it until the end of the cycle. People with kitchen cupboard doors which are a certain style don't want appliances to be on show, they would rather tuck them neatly away and keep the décor of the kitchen how they want it.
