Counter depth or non-counter depth refridgerators

5 years ago


I'd love some advice. We are building a home and have 24" deep x 42" tall cabinets going above our refrigerator as well as throughout the rest of the kitchen. We were told that the counter depth refrigerators are a better fit for that space and will only stick out by a few inches from the counter. However, we do not like that they are smaller and actually more expensive. Is it really a big deal to have a non-counter depth refrigerator that sticks out potentially 9" from your counter? Ours will be in the corner (see photo); so one side of the refrigerator will be against the wall and the other side will have a framed in cabinetry wall. I need to measure the wall that it will be up against to compare that to the depth of a non-counter depth refrigerator. I've attached a picture from a model home that is like ours, except their cabinets are not as tall.

Thanks in advance!
