    Fridge Measurement Guide

    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.

    Did you know?

    Undercounter fridges all have a height of around 85cm, while upright fridges can be as tall as 200cm.

    Measuring up

    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.

    Shop freestanding

    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.

    How to measure

    First, you’ll need to find the perfect space in your kitchen to put your new fridge. Next, grab a measuring tape and measure the height of the space from top to bottom or to the top of the counter if you’re opting for an undercounter model. Then do the same with the width and depth by measuring from the wall to the edge of your counters. Don’t forget to make a note of these so you can look back at them later. We also recommend adding 5cm to the depth and width to allow for proper ventilation and to avoid the doors hitting your worktop and walls.

    Did you know?

    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.

    Door fixings

    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.
