Are integrated (kitchen) appliances a yay or nay?
I was looking at a place last weekend and I really loved the kitchen with all the appliances hidden/integrated into the cabinets but then I got to thinking if it was indeed as good as it seemed. I made a quick list of pros & cons but I defer to RFD if there's any insights based on past experiences or whatnot
- Looks good (subjective, but IMO it does)
- More efficient use of space
- Since it might be custom work, maintenance/replacement might be a pain later on
- You don't get to "pick your own" appliance (if you have a preference for a specific model from a specific brand)
But yeah what do you guys think? If you were given the choice, would you prefer one or the other?
