What refrigerators are completely integrated?

gobrunoJuly 16, 2012

I was wondering what refrigerators were completely integrated--could be covered with panels so that you don't know it's a refrigerator. We currently have the Thermador Freedom columns, and they are completely integrated, and we love this look. We are looking for a similar look for our basement wet bar. We want the wet bar area to look more like furniture built-ins than a wet bar, but we don't want anything as expensive for the wet bar area. Does anybody know whether the KitchenAid Counter Depth french door panel ready refrigerator is completely integrated? Here is a link:

That's what I'm getting. Sadly it's not fully integrated

Anything "counter depth" can have cabinets built around it to look "integrated" but it will never truly be a built in. It can be made to look very nice though. You'll end up spending a decent amount on the cabinetry with this setup though. Have you ever considered using fridge drawers with a built in icemaker for the bar area? It can save a lot of space and really looks sharp.

As far as I know, the Thermador (including those made by Thermador, like Miele) and a subsequent Subzero are the only completely integrated models. I'm not sure if Liebherr might have one.

Add Gaggenau to the list.

Gaggenau is the same family as Thermador -- fancier trim out, so more money instead of less. So yes, there are some others, but I don't think you will find fully integrated at a lower price point. Your best bet would be to look for a floor model being sold, if you have some flexibility on timing.

Liebherr makes a pretty much integrated fridge, except you can't cover up the toe kick. You can cheat on this with Velcro'd feet at the edges.

Blomberg makes one; I have no knowledge of this brand (or ever heard of it before) but in my quest for an affordable fully integrated refrigerator this is the only other brand I have come across other than those already listed. In the pictures I have seen it appears to be very similar to a liebherr.
