Can I place my refrigerator in a corner?

October 2nd, 2007 § 6 Comments

Any refrigerator placed in a corner is going to occupy valuable real estate in a kitchen. Unless you plan on purchasing a built in integrated model, most free standing refrigerators are simply too bulky to do a corner justice.

    Are there any corner refrigerators that are smaller (i.e. around the same volume as a regular refrigerator?

    Good question. Do you mean to select a built in refrigerator? Are you looking for a smaller refrigerator with the same size volume as a regular refrigerator?

    Counter depth refrigerator will not offer the same volume compared to the same size free standing. You would have to get a taller built in style and even so, the cubic storage may not be the same.

    Let me get an expert to comment. Check back soon.

    Corner placement is always tricky. Common mistakes are putting French-Door or Side-by-Sides in a corner and not leaving any room for the door to swing past 90. Best is to place a freezer on the top or freezer on the bottom style so you can access the most amount of shelve space. If your going for a built-in then bottom freezer is your only option. Just remember to put the hinge next to the wall side or you’ll be dancing the “around the door” jig .

    Oh and a corner ( like a 45 ) it has to be small ( 27″ or less ) If you put a normal 36″ built in the you would take up over 54″ of space!. A 27″ frig is like 15 cubic feet and a 36″ is more like 20. Hope this helps ;)
