Design Strategies for Integrating Refrigerators into Kitchen Cabinetry

It wasn’t that long ago that your appliances travelled with you. Buying a new house meant packing up your old refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher and installing them into your next kitchen. This wasn’t too critical for stoves and dishwashers because they usually come in standard dimensions. But refrigerators vary in both width and height and most kitchens had to be designed to accommodate just about any possible size. The result is the typical bad kitchen design detail of a refrigerator sitting in an oversized gap in the cabinetry. The good news is that those days are largely behind us, and most appliances stay with a house when it is sold. However, there is still a legacy of badly designed cabinetry detailing around the refrigerator. Fortunately, a little care and attention paid to this small aspect of kitchen design can make a huge difference in the quality of the overall outcome. To learn more, watch John and Matthew discuss some of the key design considerations for integrating both traditional 30′ deep refrigerators as well as the new counter depth-variety into kitchen cabinetry.
