Counter-Depth vs. Proud Installation
Another factor to keep in mind when selecting a refrigerator is taking into account how you’d like the refrigerator to look when installed into your home. You can select between having the refrigerator flush with your cabinetry with a Counter-Depth unit or a Proud refrigerator whose depth will be greater than your counter.
If you want a sleek, built-in appearance, then a Counter-Depth will be perfect for you. Counter-Depth refrigerators have a standard depth of 24 inches, matching the depth of your counters. However, these refrigerators typically have less capacity than their Proud counterparts and may be taller to make up for the smaller depth. If you don’t mind the refrigerator’s depth exceeding that of your counters, then a Proud refrigerator will work for you.
