The counter depth refrigerator is one of the three main types of refrigerator. The other two types are the freestanding refrigerator and the built-in refrigerator. The counter depth or cabinet depth refrigerator is made to sit flush with your counter and is therefore not as deep as the traditional freestanding refrigerator.
Counter depth refrigerators are also a bit wider and taller than freestanding refrigerators and the fact that they are even with your cabinets gives them a very modern and stylish look. The refrigerator dimensions for depth are 24 inches without the door and handle.
When buying a counter-depth refrigerator the most important thing is to get the correct size. Measure your space and find out what size refrigerator you need. That will narrow down your choices considerably and aide you in purchaseing a counter depth side-by-side refrigerator.
