Kitchen appliances are often built into the cabinetry, particularly if they're wired directly into the electrical system or fitted to the gas service.

Other appliances are more likely to be free standing, but still incorporated into the design of the kitchen.

We'll also discuss techniques used to install dishwashers and sinks.
