You’re measuring for a freestanding freezer if: the appliance you’ve got your eye on is an all in one model and doesn’t have a cupboard door attached. Measure the width and depth of the space and make a note. You will also need to take the height measurement if you're going for an under counter model.
These won't fit behind a cupboard door.
The main measurement to check is height, as this can vary by model.
Measure your space. Leave a little room either side so that the door can open.
Did you know that most freezers come with a reversible door? We love to talk about it on the product page, so keep an eye out for it there.
You’re measuring for an integrated freezer if: the freezer you’ve got your eye on has a door fitted to the front to match the rest of your kitchen. Integrated freezers usually have a standard depth of 55cm so that they’ll fit into your kitchen units.
Designed to be fitted with cupboard doors.
Leave a few centimetres at the back for pipes or sockets needed for connection.
Replacing an existing model? Check the new one isn't wider, or the doors may not open.
With integrated models, there are two types of hinges you need to consider, sliding and fixed. If you’re replacing and old integrated appliance, make sure to buy the same type of hinge used on your old model for your new one.
Did you know that you can change a sliding hinge to a fixed one?

Most freezers shouldn’t be kept in the garage, as temperatures can dip below 10 degrees Celsius. If you’re planning on keeping one here, make sure you pick one with freezer guard technology to protect it. Shop here.
The ideal place for a freezer is usually in your kitchen. Avoid putting it next to a cooker, oven or dishwasher. The heat from these appliances will make your freezer work harder to keep your food nice and cold, meaning more energy will be used. Also, your freezer shouldn’t be placed in your garage, conservatory or anywhere where the temperature is below 10°C, as it may stop working. The only exception is if you have an appliance with freezer guard tech, as it keeps the freezer working no matter the conditions.
