Topic tags/keywords: kitchen appliance cabinet walls planning remodeling

Hello, I am remodelling a kitchen in an old home an need to know how wide the space should be for the refrigerator. I have seen modern grudges vary in width from 32 to 36 inches but was wondering if there is a standard size to make the hole. Any help is appreciated.

My instincts said to tell you 1/2”, I googled your question and got the same answer. Pick out your model first if it is for you.

I agree with jstegall….pick out your frig first….then go about 1 – 2 inches bigger, this will make it easier to get in and out of the space…......just a thought…..

Whenever I do installs I leave 1-2 inches. You can look at my site
