Refrigerators 101

Before you swing by the store, use these helpful tips to prep for your purchase.

Measure Your Space

Before you buy, measure the height, width and depth of your cutout space.

Add 1/2″ of space in the back to allow extra room for water lines if model has an ice maker or water dispenser.
Add 1/2″ to the top of the refrigerator. Measure the size of the doorways, hallways and other points of entry in your home to ensure your new refrigerator will be able to pass through.

Add 3-3/4″ minimum space to the hinged side and 1/2″ to the non-hinged side for door clearance and airflow.

Note: Remember, side-by-side refrigerators have hinges on both sides, so you will need to allow 3-3/4″ on each side.
