Measuring for a Perfect Fit
The most important part of buying a refrigerator is making sure it will fit in your space. So that’s what we’ll start with as we guide you through the process. First, you’ll measure the width of your space, then we’ll tackle height. After that, we’ll ask you to consider whether counter-depth refrigerators make sense in your kitchen. Keep in mind that if you have a kitchen designed with extra space behind the refrigerator, then you can actually slide a regular-depth refrigerator back farther to make the front flush with the counters just like a counter-depth fridge for a nice, built-in look.
Next to size, door style and finish are the most important considerations for ensuring you find a fridge that meets your needs. So we’ll explore the various benefits of the different door styles. We’ll also let you peruse our range of available finishes, from classic white to modern stainless steel refrigerators.
Keep in mind that there are other kinds of refrigerators you might want to consider if you aren’t buying for a standard kitchen placement. Wine refrigerators are a great addition to any home, and a mini fridge makes a lot of sense in spaces like a dorm room, garage or basement.
Finally, once you’ve chosen which refrigerator to buy, we’ll support you throughout the life of your fridge with services and products like replacing a refrigerator water filter.
