WWYRH? refrigerator size question
Which would you rather have?
1. Counter depth refrigerator (22.6 cu ft. note - current fridge is 21.9),wall & base cabinets/counter on both sides with sides exposed.
2. Counter depth refrigerator (17ish cu ft), wall & base cabinets/counter on both sides with upper cabinet pulled forward and panel around refrigerator for built in look.
I'm still researching appliances on and off. Our current refrigerator is 21.9 cu ft. (I originally thought it was 25, oops).
My refrigerator is in the middle of a cabinet run (stupid when not well planned) and I wanted to replace the upper cabinet, pull it forward, and add panels around the sides.
I don't want water/ice on the front and would prefer French doors. I really like a few of the Electrolux ones but the space for my refrigerator is 36"w and these refrigerators are almost as wide so there wouldn't be any room for panels.
It appears I would have to bump down to 17ish cu ft. refrigerator in general to be able to use panels and make it all fit. I just think that's going to be way too small for our needs.
Is it possible to move the wall & base cabinets along with the countertop on the right side over a little more? LOL. I think that will be a problem with everything being too close to the edge of the wall; mainly the existing crown and I wanted to replace that with something a little more substantial anyhow.
Ah, yes. Through researching I did discover that if we would've bought the bigger refrigerator were we going to (years ago) it wouldn't have FIT! We just went to the appliances store and picked stuff out (also stupid)! I also learned that most refrigerators stick out WAY more than mine does. On a positive note, I actually don't mind my refrigerator nearly as much as I used to.
