DIY Kitchen advice (with photo)

I've got another thread on here asking for advice for getting a small, cheap but good value kitchen done.
Thanks to all the really helpful replies I think I will go for DIY kitchens (with the exciting possibility of a road trip to visit their showroom!)
I've also got Howdens kitchens as a possibility too in my head.
My question is, I have these under counter fridge & freezer. Both work perfectly and as they are free-standing they have more internal space so ideally I'd like to keep them if it doesn't mess up the overall look of the new kitchen.
What does everyone think? Do you think it might be possible?

You can design your kitchen however you like with DIY Kitchens, but beware you have to do all the measurements etc. yourself (mine's from DIY kitchens). It was a bit of a ballache, tbh and we got one of the cupboard measurements wrong, so had to keep that and wait another six weeks for the replacement.
I do like their showroom though. We went a few times as it was close by.

agree about get your measurements spot on we didnt allow for the back door opening and got one wall cupboard to big with the fridge next to it would have got in the way and we had to order another cupboard which is still in the garage as no exchange on it allowed was allowed to return the doors but not the cabinet

I love free standing appliances. They have more internal space ( especially fridges) and much easier to replace if ( when) they go wrong. Just make sure that you have allowed enough space ( although most actually measure 58cm, so should go into a 60 cm space. I’d allow a bit more for ease of installation, but there’s generally a few spare centimetres knocking around)
