Remodel complication - too small opening for refrigerator
We are recessing our fridge into a wall. It was supposed to get 37" for the width, but I got 36.25". I can fix it, but we would have to move a wall that just got built. There is not only cost for that, but also to delay the entire project.
Will 36.25" give me enough space for a counter depth fridge with clearance to open the doors? Is there a standard width? I want the fridge as big as possible, because we are already forced to get a CD fridge due to depth limitations.
Or, suck it up and spend the money to move the wall?
Thanks in advance!
edited to add: I was really hoping to save some money right now and reuse the fridge that came with the house - I just went over and measured, it is 35.5" inches. But I wanted to build the opening so that I could easily purchase a new fridge in the future. So I don't want this opening to greatly limit my choices.
