Open concept kitchens continue to be a dominant design trend. Spacious, airy kitchens that flow into other rooms give you more room to work while minimizing clutter that can stifle creativity. Built-in appliances are a natural fit for the open concept aesthetic because they integrate with your kitchen cabinetry, creating clean lines, unobstructed paths and a tidy feel. 

You can take this design trend to the next level by integrating panel-ready appliances. This style option—most often available on refrigerators and dishwashers—affixes an exterior panel to the front of your appliance that can create the appearance of continuous cabinets in the kitchen. Built-in appliances and an integrated kitchen may be right for you if you’re looking for the following:

Adaptive spaces. Integrated kitchens with built-in appliances open up plenty of room for living, entertaining and exploring the craft of cooking. Homes serve more purposes than ever before, and an open, integrated kitchen can help a kitchen nook transform into an office or a kitchen island into a study space.

A premium look. Because rooms in open concept homes tend to flow into each other, you can typically see the kitchen from several points in the house. Built-in appliances fit seamlessly into the kitchen, producing a premium, luxurious look.

Another option for achieving a built-in look at a lower price point is to install appliances that are flush with cabinetry. Standard depth appliances typically stick out several inches beyond cabinets and can interrupt sightlines in the kitchen. Consider KitchenAid® counter-depth refrigerators, or the KitchenAid® Over-The-Range Microwave with Flush Built-In Design that fits evenly with cabinets to give your kitchen a seamless look and feel.1

Achieve a streamlined, premium look with all the appliances in your kitchen including built-in refrigerators, slide-in ranges, built-in microwaves and retractable downdraft hoods. Wall ovens, cooktops and most dishwashers have a naturally integrated appearance so they don’t come in “built-in” models.

2. Kitchen Islands with a Range or Cooktop

This layout helps create a kitchen that can keep up with busy, modern life. Islands help you utilize every inch of your kitchen efficiently and, in an open concept home, often form a divider between the kitchen and other rooms. A range or cooktop on the island centralizes your work space and allows you to see what’s happening in the rest of your home while you cook. Consider putting a range or cooktop on your island if:

You like to share in the making. With a cook surface on your island, you can engage with family and friends as you bake, stir and saute. With extra seating and plenty of space to prep around the range or cooktop, this layout lets you include plenty of people in the making.

You want more room to create. Islands create extra counter space in the center of the kitchen for rolling out dough, assembling your mise en place or displaying finished dishes.

Cooktops and slide-in ranges are ideal for kitchen islands because they easily integrate into countertops, unlike a freestanding range which has a backguard that rises above the cooking surface. Island canopy hoods and retractable downdraft hoods are ventilation options designed with the island in mind. Some cooking appliances also feature ventilation built-in like downdraft cooktops and downdraft ranges.

Rather than heating the surface of the cooktop, induction cooktops create heat directly inside of pots and pans. Induction surfaces use electromagnetic energy to interact with compatible cookware through a copper coil, so you can expect less heat loss throughout the process and elements that are highly responsive to temperature changes.   

An induction range or cooktop may be the right fit for your kitchen if you prefer the sleek and easy-to-clean surface of an electric cooktop but the control and responsiveness of gas burners.


KitchenAid® induction cooktops come in black or stainless steel models to complement your kitchen’s aesthetic. Some models include 12 heat level settings so you can seamlessly melt chocolate, simmer sauce, sear meat or rapidly boil dishes. Plus, select models feature two elements with the Bridge function that lets you convert two cooking zones into one large zone for specialty cookware.

Dual fuel ranges combine the power of a gas flame cooktop with the even heat of an electric oven, giving you the best of both worlds in the kitchen through a combination of fuel sources. These ranges let you explore new techniques and recipes in both cooking and baking.

Consistent temperatures and drier oven heat can reduce the need to rotate dishes down below while the open flame above lets you char or sear over an open flame and saute with ease. If your kitchen’s layout or aesthetic is best suited to a wall oven separate from the cooktop, consider installing a gas cooktop with an electric wall oven for the same effect.


Try out new techniques with confidence when you cook or bake with a KitchenAid® dual fuel range. Select KitchenAid® dual fuel ranges feature convection ovens for even baking across various racks, specialized burners to assist with cooking techniques and a Baking Drawer that lets you bake at a different temperature than the main oven compartment.

Whether you opt for a double oven range or a double wall oven, these appliances offer the extra capacity and separate heating zones you need to cook multiple dishes at once. If you’re pining to create more in your kitchen, entertain frequently or prefer big batch cooking, a double oven may be the perfect fit for you.

Combination wall ovens—which feature a single oven with a microwave on top—can help create space on the countertop while also providing extra space for cooking unique dishes at once. Select KitchenAid® combination wall ovens even feature convection cooking in the microwave that lets you bake or roast dishes when you’re full to capacity in the oven below.

Some double oven ranges combine electric ovens with a gas cooktop for the best of both worlds.

Undercounter refrigerators let you entertain in style while providing overflow chilled storage for your favorite beverages and snacks. Wine refrigerators often feature a glass door and can show off a wine collection of cabernet sauvignon, pinot grigio or other varieties, all while keeping them in their ideal temperature-controlled environment.

Other undercounter options—like refrigerator drawers and ice makers—are perfect for organizing drinks or side dishes for a gathering, or making sure there’s always enough ice to go around.


KitchenAid® undercounter beverage centers, wine cellars, ice makers and refrigerated drawers can come panel ready or in finishes like black stainless and stainless steel to seamlessly integrate into your existing aesthetic. With features like temperature controlled zones and LED interior lighting on select models, these undercounter companions make it easy to store and find even more of what you love.


Pairing appliances with colorful cabinets can create an exciting design canvas. To create contrast, stainless steel appliances resonate with dark cabinetry for a modern aesthetic. Or, install black appliances amidst light-colored cabinets for a touch of sophistication. Complementary colored cabinets can harmonize with contrasting small appliances to enrich your space. For instance, white cabinets find balance with a vibrant red KitchenAid® Metal Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine or scorched orange KitchenAid® Artisan® Series 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, adding vibrant focal points.

A kitchen that matches your style helps set the scene for culinary journeys all your own. The popularity of the all-white kitchen has been waning and instead, creators are yearning for colors that inspire. Choose a bold, dark color to add contrast and mood or a soft neutral for a warm, inviting feel. You can also mix and match appliances, pairing bold pops of color with more neutral shades like stainless steel, black or white appliance finishes.  

For example, KitchenAid brand offers stand mixers in over 40 colors like Blue Velvet, Honey and Pistachio. A small appliance is a great way to add a pop of color to your kitchen palette. Pick an accent color like Aqua Sky and dot your kitchen with a stand mixer, blender and food chopper all in the same color, or curate your own collection of colors for a custom palette. In the spirit of personal touches, KitchenAid brand also offers the option to engrave select stand mixers which come in unique colors with multiple bowls and attachments.2 Create your personalized Artisan® Stand Mixer.

For an even more daring pop of color, consider incorporating major kitchen appliances with bold colors like KitchenAid® commercial-style ranges that come in vibrant Yellow Pepper, Misty Blue, Avocado Cream, Scorched Orange and more.
