Recessing the fridge, how will it look?
We are finalizing the appliances and kitchen details and I had thought that I had made the decision about our fridge. We really didn't want to spend the money on a built-in or counter depth fridge but want that look so we decided to recess a full depth fridge and are hoping that it will look counter depth (or close to it). Our builder says that he can give us 6 inches into the wall. the depth of the fridge that we are contemplating is 35.25" the kitchenaid KFIS27CXMS. Standard counter depth is 24" so this will stick out about 5 inches? Is that correct? That seems like a lot.
For about the same price we could put a counter depth all fridge (the frigidaire FPRH19D7LF) we will have a full freezer down the pantry. I just really like having water and ice in the door and this option will not have that option.
Has anyone here done this? any advice and pictures are welcome. Thanks..
