Top Freezer

French Door
The standard size of a French door refrigerator is 29 ½ to 36 inches in width, 68 ½ to 70 ⅛ inches in height and 29 ⅜ to 34 ⅝ inches in depth.

Step 2: Measure Refrigerator Depth



Refrigerators come in two depths: they’re either virtually flush with your countertops or they extend past them.


Does your kitchen have an island?
Measure the space in front of the refrigerator so doors and drawers can open without getting dinged.

Step 3: Measure refrigerator width



Measure from wall to counter, cabinet to cabinet or whatever may be on either side of your refrigerator space.
NOTE: If your refrigerator is located next to a wall, leave 2½ inches between the wall and the hinge side of the door so it can swing open.

Step 4: Measure refrigerator height



Cabinets above your cutout? Measure from the floor to the bottom of the cabinets.

Step 5: Add a little breathing room



Now that you’ve got your refrigerator measurements, add a half inch on all sides for proper ventilation so it can cool things down without overheating.

Step 6: Map out a path



It fits your needs and fits your space, but how’s it getting there? From the nearest entrance to your kitchen, measure the width of every hallway and doorway to ensure your new fridge can make it through.

Tight squeeze? Remove the doors for extra wiggle room.
