Refrigerators with integrated freezers are positioned on top of custom cabinets for an aesthetically seamless appearance. They can also have an extra drawer in the middle, perfect for storing wine or the charcuterie board prior to a visit from friends.
However, there are some downsides to this design choice. One of the downsides is that they may reduce your home’s resale price should you decide to sell.

This Bosch fridge is built to last and offers the high-quality and smart storage space of a built-in refrigerator for a much lower price. It’s ideal if you don’t have a plenty of storage space in your kitchen. It includes multiple shelves on the doors as well as an egg rack, a large salad crisper, and an elegant wine rack that can meet all your chilled food needs. The LED lights are a new concept in lighting for fridges. They provide glare-free illumination, even the interior lighting. They also consume less electricity and last longer than standard fridge lights.
The Bosch Serie 2 fridge uses innovative technologies that keep your food fresher for longer. It also puts emphasis on health and convenience. The Dual Compressor and dual Evaporator configuration of the Bosch Serie 2 refrigerator is more advanced than any conventional refrigerator. It offers the ideal environment for food preservation.

This model is the top of the line one, featuring dual compressors and VitaFreshPro advanced settings to keep food fresher for longer. It also features a translucent MultiBox drawer with an elongated base that helps to keep veggies and fruits safe from wilting, as well being equipped with an Auto Defrost system that instantly evaporates condensation and helps keep your fridge tidy. The doors are reversible, which means you can set them to open from either the left or right depending on the layout of your kitchen. The capacity of 133 litres in this fridge is enough for the majority of families. It comes with three shelves and a variety of compartments within the doors to store your food items. The hinges on the door can be adjusted to adjust the height of your fridge to the cabinetry.

If you prefer a counter-depth fridge look but still need plenty of storage space Samsung’s RF29A967512 has got you covered. Its flat panel doors blend seamlessly with cabinetry to create a a modern built-in look, and you’ll appreciate the independent refrigerator and freezer controls that help keep food fresher longer. You can also control your fridge remotely using the SmartThings App.
The stainless steel finish looks sleek and durable. You can choose from different door colors that match your kitchen or your home’s decor. This Cotta Sky Blue model, for instance, is a striking design and a great alternative to the black or silver models that most refrigerators come in. It is possible to combine this model with Samsung’s other Bespoke appliances to create a collection that is matched.
Inside there’s an enormous 387 liters of grocery capacity–enough to store 19 bags of 20-litre groceries. Samsung’s “SpaceMax” technology that makes the cabinet’s walls as light and thin as it is possible to maximize space, is the reason for this. There are four shelves in the cabinet, plus the top shelf that is used for vegetables. A wine rack made of metal is fitted with five grooves for bottles. The middle drawer can be used to hold deli items, wine, beverages, meat or soft-freeze. The fridge has two drawers with crispers, and a clever slide-back part of the middle shelf enables you to fit tall items.
Other features include an elegant stainless steel water dispenser with a digital control and three drinking modes. Each mode can be adjusted to an individual temperature. The RF29A967512 comes with Wi-Fi connectivity which means you can connect it to the internet at home and use SmartThings to monitor and manage it. You can also set an alarm on your refrigerator which is handy when you’re working late and need to grab breakfast on the way to work.
The RF29A967512 is available in counter-depth and standard models. You’ll have to decide which one best fits your space. The smaller model is smaller, with a smaller capacity of 23 cubic feet, and less refrigerator and freezer space than the bigger model. Also, the counter-depth fridge is quite deep at 73 inches, which is higher than the majority of fridges we’ve tested. However, it may be too much of a step for some people to open comfortably. The handles are flat that are ADA certified, are easy to reach and grip. They’re more comfortable than the tube-shaped handles that are found on the majority of refrigerators, so we award Samsung an extra few points for the handles.
