Fridge/freezer size dilemma
I don't post much but i search this forum often and have learned so much. We are currently building a new house, but my main focus is the kitchen and this forum is a total godsend!
My layout is pretty set and I have several cabinet quotes in. However I'm having a lot of trouble committing to integrated refrigerator/freezer sizes and I'm hoping for some opinions from the experts here before moving Forward.
Sorry if these are boring details, but the kitchen is 19x26, almost half of that is just seating (table and chairs in front of a fireplace). There is also a large butlers pantry right off the kitchen in which I'm planning a full size (but not integrated) fridge. If we end up anything like our parents we will probably have a "garage fridge" at some point as well! So if you can see where I'm going with this... The current kitchen layout has a 36" integrated all-fridge, alongside a 36" all-freezer unit on a separate walll, with pantry cabinet. I just keep thinking asking myself if this is too much for the actual kitchen? Since we have backup fridge(s)? Oh, we will be a family of 5 in this house, 3 small children, and I do cook, have parties, leftovers etc so I do like a lot of fridge space.
One thought was downsize to a regular 36" fridge/freezer (sub zero 736) on the fridge/pantry wall and put undercounter fr/frz drawers in my breakfast/"lunch making" zone... But then I think I'm spinning my wheels.
If you've read this far, thanks for your patience! Any comments will be appreciated!
