Difference between built-in and fully integrated

Posted by lexmomof3 (My Page) on

What's the difference between built-in and fully integrated when both have custom panels? I'm specifically looking at Liebherr refrigerators. I'm guessing that the built-in isn't as flush with the cabinets as the fully integrated. Is that correct? If so, why would a company make both built-in and fully integrated with custom panels when it seems like if you're doing custom panels, the purpose is to have it flush with the other cabinets. If anyone has pictures of the difference between the two, I'd greatly appreciate seeing them.

RE: Difference between built-in and fully integrated

With built in, you can see the "stuff" behind the panels. Stainless and rubber bits. Like having the curtain pulled back on the Wizard. With fully integrated, there's no hint that it's even an appliance. If you want it to look like a 14th century Japanese Tansu, if you have the cabinet maker who can do the millwork, then it can look like that.
