You know that your kitchen doesn't have to have a freestanding stainless steel fridge just like everybody else's, right? There happen to be other options out there — the integrated (or built-in) fridge being one of them. Integrated fridges are a seamless addition to your kitchen and can even function as a style statement. Check out how pretty they can look:
If you like seeing all cabinetry with no interruptions, an integrated fridge may be for you. This clean and sleek one is by deVOL Kitchens. "Lots of fridges and freezers can be attached to our furniture by hinge sliders that allow the cupboard door and appliance door to open together seamlessly," they say on Instagram.
