Cooling

Designed to unobtrusivley blend into your fitted kitchen, built-in fridges, freezers and wine coolers are available as semi or fully intergrated appliances.

Specifications are usually very similar to a freestanding equivalent, but built-in units are more specialised due to mounting requrements and are not just freestanding machines with a cupboard door. These machines are housed wholly or partially housed inside a kitchen carcase and reside behind a matching kitchen door.

Models are usually slimmer and shorter than conventional machines allowing for the extra carcase material they are housed in, and they also tend to be more expensive because of the additonal requirements to produce a machine more compactly.

As with all appliances carefully think about the features you want before buying. You will also need to consider where and how they’ll be positioned, and the fitting requirements which your specialist kitchen installer will be able to assist with.

What is the difference between built-in and freestanding?

Freestanding

As the word suggests, these appliances stand free in a suitable opening or location and offer flexibility to sited anywhere there is space and moved around if required. They also tend to have the largest capacity of all cooling appliances.

Built-under

As the word suggests, these appliances stand free in a suitable opening or location and offer flexibility to sited anywhere there is space and moved around if required. They also tend to have the largest capacity of all cooling appliances.

Built-in / integrated

Fully built into a carcass with the correct ventilation these appliances are either fully or partially concealed behind a door panel which only become visible when the doors are opened.​ These offer the abilty to blend into any kitchen and only you know where the fridge and freezer appliances are sited!

Semi-integrated

Same as fully intergrated but normally with just the control panel being visible so offer similar clean lines as the fully integrated cooling appliances but with control on the outside and therefore the option to change settings without opening the doors.
