Eight Narrow, Counter-Depth Refrigerators

You know how some refrigerators are so deep that they stick out past the counter? Well, there is a whole genre of the appliance out there that is made to fit flush with the depth of the counter, eliminating those awkward ins-and-outs in the kitchen. Problem is, most of them are at least 36" wide:

A counter-depth fridge is shallower than normal, but generally makes up for storage capacity in its width. Most counter-depth models are 36" wide and up. However, a few manufacturers have narrow models for smaller kitchens, as you'll see in the list below.

A shallow refrigerator makes not only for a smooth fit with countertops, its proportions also allow you to see everything in the fridge with greater ease so you're less likely to "lose" or forget items that are stowed deep in the back of a shelf.

Let's take a look at a few of the narrower counter-depth refrigerators that are available. They tend to be more expensive than their full-depth counterparts, but it can be worth it for a few extra inches in a small kitchen. Plus, they help create a sleeker appearance without the even higher cost of a built-in model.
