Deciding the right dishwasher for you 

Dishwashers have become an essential part of most modern kitchens and it’s not hard to understand why. According to Energy Star, a dishwasher can save you more than 230 hours a year compared to washing by hand. Even after deciding on purchasing a dishwasher, it is important to know what style suits your kitchen best. Whether it’s built-in, freestanding, or tabletop, we will help you find the dishwasher for you.


Built-in dishwasher

The standard built-in dishwasher is the most popular choice for many homes today. Usually you can find cabinet openings designed to fit a built-in dishwasher of a width of 24 inches, allowing the appliance to integrate seamlessly into the rest of the kitchen. They are also useful for those with smaller kitchens as the 18 inch variety fits under tighter counter spaces.


Why you should buy

Blends in seamlessly with the rest of your kitchen

Ready to use out of the box as it connects to your home plumbing

Quieter operating noise due to the insulating padding

Freestanding dishwasher

If you don’t have a space under the counter for a built-in dishwasher, then your next best bet may be a freestanding dishwasher. Unlike a built-in dishwasher, the freestanding variety is not tucked under a counter so you will need to make sure the design and color matches the rest of your kitchen. Freestanding also offers you slimmer sizes. The 18 inch size is great for small kitchens or when placing one in a second room.


Why you should buy

Can be placed wherever you wish

Can be converted into a built-in model


Tabletop dishwasher

With the increase in the trend of small living spaces, so too has there been an uptick in the popularity of small tabletop dishwashers. Ideal for smaller homes, tabletop dishwashers are not only easier to install, but they save a large amount of space compared to other dishwasher varieties. They are also a good choice for those who are renting and move home regularly, as you can easily take this dishwasher with you to your next place.


Why you should buy

Easy to install without expensive installation

Compact and saves space
