Fresh Fridges—Fresher Food

Discover Refrigerators in Fresh and Functional Styles

Whether you enjoy entertaining with a crowd or keeping your family satisfied with their favorite snacks, the right refrigerator makes all the difference. But do you know which fridge is best for your home? Discover all the reliable refrigerators we have to offer to suit your needs.

Every home is different, which is why it’s important to thoroughly measure the space where your new appliance will go. To find out how to measure a refrigerator, give our guide to properly measuring new appliances a look, or give us a call or visit.

A Perfect Fit

Anyone who’s had to unload produce and food into a refrigerator knows it can quickly become a game of Tetris. That’s why a refrigerator’s layout is just as important (if not more) as how it looks in your kitchen.

Instead of using a single shelf or bins, the freezer compartment on a side-by-side refrigerator is equipped with multiple shelves, allowing you to keep freezer items organized within an eye’s view.

Keep in mind:

  • The vertical design allows more room for warmer air to rise, so sensitive items are best stored below
  • Side-by-side refrigerator doors cannot be reversed or switched

While the simplest when it comes to design, top-freezer refrigerators and bottom-freezer refrigerators are generally your best bet for the most usable fridge space. Top-mount refrigerators (and their counterparts) opt for wide shelving and bins, providing the versatility to store wide platters, tall pitchers, and boxy items like pizza cartons.

With a side-by-side configuration above a pull-out drawer, French door refrigerators are flexible and fashion-forward. The top-mount refrigeration not only provides easier access to a wider space to store foods, but the doors won’t bang against nearby cabinetry.

For even more flexibility, opt for a French door fridge with an adaptable storage drawer that can be used as additional freezer or chill space.

All About the Freshest Looks

Are you looking to impress your guests at your next summer fiesta? Stylish fridges make quite the impression.

Designed to fit flush with your cabinetry—but not in your cabinetry—counter-depth refrigerators are sleek, free up kitchen space, and require no professional installation. However, there is no universal counter depth, so make sure to measure accurately.

On the other hand, built-in refrigerators are installed right into your kitchen’s cabinetry, freeing up its floor space even more. As they’ve grown in popularity, designers have come up with new, stylish options that complement or blend in with your kitchen, including custom panel finishing or stainless-steel.

Column refrigerators give you the luxury to fully modify the look of your kitchen by separating your freezer and fridge into modular units. This comes in handy for breaking up the flow of your kitchen or installing a fridge or a freezer where it’s most needed.

Keep in mind:

  • Since built-in fridges are installed completely flush with your cabinet, expect shorter crisper drawers, shelves, and freezer space
  • Built-in refrigerators should only be installed by professionals
  • Column refrigerators/freezers do not come with both freezing and refrigeration; they are single-purpose
