The fully integrated model is the best option from a kitchen design perspective and gives you that hidden minimal and understated finish. The dishwasher is completely hidden behind a full height kitchen furniture door and thus indistinguishable from other cupboard doors. Only the horizontal handle along the top hints that there is a drop down door but if you opt for a recessed grip rail handle system (a hidden strip along the top of each door that enables it to be opened without a handle) the effect is even less obvious. Some high-end luxury appliance brands have also introduced a self-opening dishwasher which enables a completely handless kitchen design when combined with touch opening on all the other kitchen units.
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.
If you didn't already find out there are so many benefits to owning your own dishwasher. One of the benefits is time saved instead of washing by hand even if your family is really big. Average families go through three sets of dishes daily; one for breakfast one for lunch and one for dinner. If you don't like washing dishes by hand and always feel like the sink is full of dishes you could well use a dishwasher in the kitchen every day. What is nice to know about dishwashers is all you have to do is load the dishes up put your soap in and then start washing. With most dishes and full sinks it only takes five minutes to load the dishwasher up.
