Choosing your ideal dishwasher…

When it comes to choosing your ideal dishwasher, there are several decisions to consider. With varying sizes and colours to choose from, there are also the amount of place settings and of course, how it needs to be installed. Here we take you through all the options to help you find your ideal dishwasher below;

Which type of dishwasher should I choose?


Freestanding dishwashers are a fantastic option for those that want flexibility. They are very simple to install as they fit under a worktop. Freestanding models are also easy to transport if you decide to move home. Something to think about when choosing your ideal dishwasher! The front is visible and they come in a range of different colours and styles to suit your kitchen and budget. Freestanding dishwashers also range in size from 45cm-60cm so you can easily choose the perfect fit for your kitchen. We have a wide range of freestanding dishwashers including our popular best buys;

Fully integrated dishwashers are designed to be hidden behind a full height furniture door with a plinth running across the base of the dishwasher. This allows you to maintain a seamless look in your kitchen. They are easy to operate as the controls are clearly laid out on the top of the door and some models can even project their cycle status onto the floor eliminating the need to manually check if the cycle has ended. Usually, fully integrated dishwashers tend to come in sizes 45cm, 60cm and 90cm. Take a look below at two of our top selling integrated dishwashers.
