7. Dimensions for refrigeratorRefrigerators are available in multiple models and sizes. Hence, it is practical to finalise the refrigerator model first and make a note of the width, depth and height of the refrigerator. Make sure there’s a clearance of at least 2 inches between the fridge and the wall and of 2 inches above the refrigerator, to allow adequate ventilation and dissipation of waste heat that will be produced while it is working.
