GE Profile Cabinet Depth Refrigerators

The problem is that counter and cabinets extend to a certain distance: between 24 and 27 inches; most fridges extend to over 30 inches. See the disparity now?

Appliances are not just a minor adjunct to kitchen remodeling; they are one of the most important features in your kitchen remodel. Totaled up, your three major kitchen appliances (fridge, dishwasher, and stove) comprise over eight linear feet of space. That's a lot of space. So, appliances definitely need to be considered when you come up with your kitchen layout.

Cabinet depth refrigerators allow you more flexibility with your planning. Now, your refrigerator fits into the kitchen, and not the other way around.

Cost

Cost is one of the biggest obstacles to consumers looking for counter depth refrigerators. Costs of the fridges in our Buyer's Guide current range from around $1,700 to over $3,000. Compare that with the cost for your standard-issue, freezer-on-top refrigerator, which can be had for as little as $500.
