Do I need to install an integrated or freestanding dishwasher?
by
Checkatrade

Question: Installing a dishwasher in a space by sink that now has a 60 cm wide cabinet Would I need an integrated or freestanding? Full size possible? I have the plumbing connection under the sink but will need the cabinet removed/altered. Also would probably need electrical supply connection (no sockets above worktops and probably not one behind cabinet). Are there tradespeople who are qualified in carpentry, plumbing and electrical that carry out the work or would I need more? Many thanks.

You can have a free-standing dishwasher or an integrated. The only thing with integrated would be if there’s pipework running along the back then the dishwasher won’t sit back far enough. If there’s nothing in its way above 150mm off the floor you can have integrated no problem. An electrician would be needed to run a new feed in for the dishwasher from another socket (off the existing kitchen ring main)…. Then your dishwasher will simply just plumb in under the sink having made the correct adjustments.
