Can I place my refrigerator in a corner?

October 2, 2007 § 9 Comments

Any refrigerator placed in a corner is going to occupy valuable real estate in a kitchen. Unless you plan on purchasing a built in integrated model, most free standing refrigerators are simply too bulky to do a corner justice.
Scandinavian Appliances AS makes an actual “corner” refrigerator. For more information view
Take a look. How cool is this!

    Are there any corner refrigerators that are smaller (i.e. around the same volume as a regular refrigerator?

  • Good question. Do you mean to select a built in refrigerator? Are you looking for a smaller refrigerator with the same size volume as a regular refrigerator? Counter depth refrigerator will not offer the same volume compared to the same size free standing. You would have to get a taller built in style and even so, the cubic storage may not be the same. Let me get an expert to comment. Check back soon.

    Corner placement is always tricky. Common mistakes are putting French-Door or Side-by-Sides in a corner and not leaving any room for the door to swing past 90. Best is to place a freezer on the top or freezer on the bottom style so you can access the most amount of shelve space. If your going for a built-in then bottom freezer is your only option. Just remember to put the hinge next to the wall side or you’ll be dancing the “around the door” jig .

    Oh and a corner ( like a 45 ) it has to be small ( 27″ or less ) If you put a normal 36″ built in the you would take up over 54″ of space!. A 27″ frig is like 15 cubic feet and a 36″ is more like 20. Hope this helps😉

    Is the corner fridge available in North America?

  • Laurie says:

    Leave it to the Scandinavians, always ahead of the curve, eh-hem, or should I say corner. I have put out new inquiries to see if it is available in the states.

  • Laurie says:

    The U.S. does not currently have a distributor for Norcool. the corner refrigerator mentioned in this post. Thermador now makes the Freedom series, a narrow refrigerator unit that cab be angled into the corner with a carefully planned design and angled wall. It still leaves the question of where to place a freezer, maybe next to the pantry or place the freezer in the corner and the Thermador Freedom refer. next to a pantry or tall oven.
