More and more clients are using column refrigerators in their kitchen designs. A column refrigerator is a stand alone all refrigerator and/or freezer.

The best design advantage of column refrigerators is that you have the freedom to place them wherever you would like. They do not need to be installed side by side. A column refrigerator and freezer can be separated by a tabletop and bar pantry. This makes it easy for the homeowner to go directly from the refrigerator to the table with everything they need.

The size and shape of column refrigerators are easily customized. They come in counter depth and other custom sizes such as 18″, 30″, and 36″. They can also be finished in your cabinet style, sit flush with your cabinetry, and blend into your overall design. Even if you would like to maintain a stainless steel or open glass finish on the door panels, they are always sharp, and achieve a luxurious high-end look.

Some designs may place the freezer column further away from the main traffic area as it is used less frequently. Other designs may integrate a butler’s pantry with shelving or a beverage center between the columns which is favorable for food and beverage prep.

With today’s design standards, they are also incredibly efficient. Additionally, food tends to last longer which means less waste and fewer trips to the grocery store.
