Side by Side Refrigerators FAQ

Side-by-side refrigerators pair a full-height freezer next to a full-height refrigerator. This can be a big advantage for organization since items are less likely to get “lost” in the back of either compartment. Since the doors aren’t full-width they are easier to use in tight spaces as well.

In a side-by-side refrigerator, the freezer is next to the heat-producing compressor, which may slightly impact efficiency. However, they are great for efficient organization, leading to less food waste.

Side-by-side refrigerators are generally wider than standard “stacked” units. They usually range from 32 to 36 inches wide, with some models pushing the 60-inch mark.
