Need a little help measuring up for that new fridge? No problem, our handy measuring guide will give you all the info to make sure you get that nice fit.
You’re measuring for a freestanding fridge if: the appliance you’ve got your eye on is an all in one model and doesn’t have a cupboard door attached. It’s good to know that some freestanding fridges can have slightly bigger width and depth measurements – especially with chunkier retro style models. So always check the product specifications before you buy.
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 fridges 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 fridge if: the fridge you’ve got your eye on is an all in one model that has a door fitted to the front to match the rest of your kitchen. Integrated fridges 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.
If you’re going for a retro style model you will need to leave up to 20cm extra space on the hinged side to allow the door to open fully.
With integrated models, there are two types of hinges you need to consider, sliding and fixed. If you’re replacing an 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?

The ideal place for a fridge is usually in your kitchen. Avoid putting it next to a cooker, oven or dishwasher, the heat from these appliances will make your fridge work harder to keep your food nice and cold, meaning more energy will be used.
