Get the Best Counter Depth Refrigerators for a Roomy Kitchen

by Angela Maple

Today, we have vast appliance options and can customize anything down to the finest detail — including refrigerators. This large kitchen appliance comes in various styles depending on your needs and preferred aesthetics for your kitchen. One of these options includes a counter depth refrigerator, and you may be wondering: what is that? It is a refrigerator designed to blend in with the surrounding cabinetry and countertops to promote a sleek and unified appearance.

Having a counter depth refrigerator is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it also creates more aisle space, is easily integrated, and reduces open depth (more room to open the fridge without bumping into counters). The biggest thing to consider about these refrigerators are measurements — know the height of the surrounding countertops, the refrigerator itself, and the overall depth of the countertop opening.

That may seem like a lot of information to take in, but our picks for the best counter depth refrigerators can make choosing your refrigerator a little easier for you.
