Jannie - in Europe that is very common. the idea of the component (as opposed to built-in) kitchen was born there. Ikea and Bulhaupt have brought that idea stateside recently. I saw an episode of House Hunters International where an American family was surprised to learn this. It is important to understand different cultures/countries have different approaches. It doesn't make it bad, just different. Knowledge is power. :)

I guess it's a "youth thing" to be surprised that kitchens don't have to come with built-ins. The homes I grew up in did not have built-in cabinets or appliances, although they did have generous walk-in pantries. The same was true for the homes we owned as young marrieds.

When we moved to Florida, I brought my range, refrigerator and a couple of free-standing cabinets with me. Thankfully, the first home we lived in down here had been built in the 1920's and I was able to use them.

Back when I was first married (ok, a zillion years ago), buying good appliances and having free-standing cabinets you took with you when you moved was the norm. The built-in kitchens people take for granted today were seen mostly in expensive homes back then. And rather than being purchased separately and then installed, they were built by talented carpenters whether professional or hobbyists. I still remember watching my father, whose hobby was woodworking, build a beautiful corner cabinet in our kitchen as a gift for my mother. It was the kitchen's only built-in, and that kitchen functioned very well.
