Counter Depth Refrigerator?

Counter Depth Fridge? I need something that does not stick out of the space.


Do you have a small space in your kitchen for a fridge or simply don't want that fridge sticking out of the space it lives in? If you said yes to either of these questions you need a counter depth fridge.

"Counter depth is a term used to describe a free standing fridge that is shallow and in most cases the cabinet portion of that fridge is only 24" deep" 

This is not to be confused with the built in series of refrigeration that are generally the more expensive ones. So when selecting a counter depth fridge make sure you're happy with the design, style and over all dimensions. The dimensions can vary between manufactures based on door thickness and handles. for example common counter depth fridges will be approx 26" to 28" over all depth with handles.

"Counter Depth Fridges? They can make your kitchen look more tidy and modern with that built in look that designers love"

The alternative and less expensive fridges are the traditional full sized or freestanding fridges with a cabinet depth of 28" and over all depth ranging from 30" to 36" on average. So if you fall in love with that Samsung 4 door with door in door feature or the LG with the same be prepared to have a space to hold a large fridge.

Currently the most common size of counter depth is 36" wide by 70" tall and 26 to 28" deep. Yet as we will show a couple are designed to fit in a 33" wide and only 67" tall space and in some rare cases even smaller. If your shopping for a mass brand or common fridge that is not to expensive consider the fact that you will only have a couple choice's of fridge that are less than 33" wide that are counter depth at the moment.

Samsung Produces the following fridges in counter depth that are less than 36" wide. Please Reference the Samsung website for specs and to confirm your size required.
