They provide functional flexibility and make a good alternative for stationary kitchen appliance. They are available in different models and offer block-styled tops to match the interior of your kitchen easily. If you have a portable dishwasher you can convert it to function the way undercounter does. Just remove the top surface wheels and side panels to convert the portable model into undercounter installation. You may need to purchase a conversion kit for this procedure.
Both the above sizes of dishwashers come in three different configurations: freestanding semi-integrated or fully integrated. Freestanding is the most cost effective version and fully integrated the more expensive. The freestanding models are best used in separate utility rooms or where budget is a constraint as they tend to be bulky and unsightly. The semi-integrated model basically means that although the dishwasher front has an integrated kitchen furniture door the control panel is still visible along the top. This works well if there are drawers of a similar height either side of the dishwasher and thus the visual line is carried through.
The other alternative is of course the more standard 60cm wide model that should easily provide for the needs of a family of four. Good dishwashers nowadays are quite efficient and usually include an eco cycle that whilst shorter still cleans lightly soiled crockery glassware and cutlery easily. The shorter cycle also makes it practical to do more than one load as long as you are happy to cope with a sink full of dirty dishes until then. The alternative option would be to site the dishwasher in a separate utility room where the dirty dishes can be hidden out of sight; especially useful in the open plan kitchen/living/dining spaces of today's modern home. However the compromise of locating the dishwasher in the utility as opposed to the main kitchen would involve more of a trek between the two spaces when loading and unloading; these are options to discuss with your kitchen designer. For a large luxury kitchen used by a big family two full size dishwashers may be specified.
