Our 5 Favorite 30” Refrigerators for Small Kitchens

by Pam Silvia

Your friends in the business at Spencer’s TV & Appliance believe a healthy family starts with proper food storage. In line with that, our inventory of name-brand refrigerators is sure to keep your groceries fresh for midday snacks and dinnertime meals—not only that, but they are perfectly designed to suit a wide variety of kitchen layouts, lifestyles, and aesthetic preferences.

That said, the standard width of most freestanding refrigerators is around 30 inches. Dissecting this dimension further, French-door and bottom-freezer fridges start at approximately 29-½ inches while top-freezer configurations start at 28-¾ inches (and the minimum width of side-by-side models surpasses this figure at 32-¾ inches).

Off the bat, we can tell you a 30” refrigerator can comfortably house groceries for a four-person family and is considered a viable option for small- and mid-sized kitchens. So, if your family size and kitchen space fit the bill for a 30-inch fridge, check out these bestselling models from our catalog as they range from entry-level to luxury-tier brands and price points!

1. Frigidaire® 20.4 Cu. Ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator

Our first spot goes to this 30” refrigerator from Frigidaire (FFTR2021TS, FFTR2021TB, and FFTR2021TW). With a number of patented organization features, this top-freezer fridge maximizes usable storage space. The Store-More™ Gallon Door Shelf gives you room for a variety of items—large and small—to provide more shelf space inside the refrigerator. And the Store-More™ Humidity-Controlled Crisper Drawers keep your fruits from spoiling and your leafy greens from wilting.

Moreover, the half-width deli drawer offers you another storage option that is conveniently located so you can have straightforward access to your favorite sandwich fixings. Up top, the freezer offers a full-width freezer shelf to enable easy organization of your frozen foods.

Overall, this 30-inch fridge is a cost-effective option that is guaranteed to exceed expectations. Often designated as an entry-level appliance brand, Frigidaire abundantly manufactures top-freezer fridges, which are the most budget-friendly option in terms of full-sized models.

Hosting an impressive 21.8 cubic feet of storage space, this premium appliance from LG (LFCS22520S and LFCS22520D) has an above-average capacity for being a 30-inch-wide refrigerator. Not only that, but this LG fridge also offers ultra-convenient features like low-decibel operation, hidden hinges, and digital temperature controls.

In addition, you can expect to reap the benefits of Smart Cooling®. Designed to maintain superior conditions, this system relies on a linear compressor that reacts quickly to temperature fluctuations and strategically placed vents to surround your food with cool air—no matter where your appliance sits. In terms of organization, this French door fridge offers a full-width Glide N’ Serve™ Drawer that makes it easy to arrange and access your foods.

In the “bells and whistles” category, this mid-priced refrigerator is stocked with a door alarm that goes off at 30-second intervals after a refrigerator door or the freezer drawer is left open for more than 60 seconds.

Complete with temperature controls, the Wide-N-Fresh™ deli drawer is the ideal size for large party platters and deli trays. Meanwhile, the humidity-controlled FreshLock™ crispers help keep your greens tasting great and your fruits full of flavor. And in terms of optics, the easy-to-clean and fingerprint-resistant stainless-steel finish keeps your refrigerator looking as beautiful on the outside as its performance on the inside.

Best of all, with a 10-year limited-parts warranty on the compressor, you can count on the heart of your refrigerator to keep all of your groceries cold and fresh for many years to come.

In the “great-value” category, we have this space-efficient Whirlpool top-freezer refrigerator (WRT108FZDM, WRT108FZDB, and WRT108FZDW). But make no mistake: This refrigerator does more than just keep your foods chilled. Impressively, this refrigerator offers a Flexi-Slide™ bin that quickly moves side-to-side for convenient storage options—allowing you to create space for items when you need it most, whether it’s for storing a two-tier birthday cake or a tall pitcher of lemonade.

What’s more, convenient, up-front electronic temperature controls let you choose the ideal temperature for whatever foods you're storing. Your freezer doesn’t have to miss out on the fun; you can also keep your frozen items perfectly ice-cold with adjustable controls. And quiet cooling keeps noise down in the kitchen while you’re trying to hold a conversation or hear instructions for a recipe tutorial.
