A built in refrigerator can feature a highly stylish and functional design, which can come with the freezer at the bottom, or adjacent to the refrigerator compartment, as in a side-by-side model. Its major advantage is its very aesthetically pleasing appearance, which is meant to complement the existing color and design theme of the kitchen. The idea is to make it blend with the cabinetry, and display the personal taste of the homeowner. Built in refrigerators come in many shapes and sizes. Make sure that the appliance you purchase will fit the space you have available. If you’re building a new home or doing a complete remodel and designing a new space for your built in refrigerator, you’ll want to make sure that the doors will open without hitting an obstacle or obstructing another appliance while it’s in use. Built-in refrigerators are usually wider but not as deep so that they’ll sit flush with kitchen counters and cabinets.
