5 Best Counter Depth Refrigerators Under $1500

by The Experts at Johnnies Appliance

top counter depth fridges

If you are looking for a refrigerator that will integrate with your kitchen design and proportions, then a counter-depth refrigerator might be the best choice for you. In contrast to full-sized refrigerators, these refrigerators usually measure about 30 inches long and give you more floor space at the cost of less storage space. And hence are best for a smaller kitchen.

However, not all counter-depth refrigerators are created equal. There are counter-depth refrigerators that will come with premium features that can cost $5000+. But, if you're tight on a budget - worry not. You can still get the best counter-depth refrigerators for under $1500.

Before we share the best counter-dept refrigerators - you need to know a few things about these refrigerators that might help you to make your buying decision easier!

Styles of Counter-Depth Refrigerators

There are four major types of counter-depth refrigerators - French doors, side-by-side, top freezers, and bottom freezers.

  • French door counter-depth refrigerators: A refrigerator with this style features a freezer below it as well as two doors above it. The refrigerator opens outwards, revealing its large interior space. Since French-door refrigerators require little space, they are more space-efficient than conventional refrigerators. Hence, they are ideal for kitchens with limited space.
  • Side-by-side counter-depth refrigerators: There are two doors on this refrigerator that extend to the very top of the unit. In side-by-side counter-depth refrigerators, there is a refrigerator on the right side, and the freezer is on the left side.
  • Top-Freezer counter-depth refrigerators: In this style, there is a freezer on top, followed by the remaining refrigerator. For refrigerators and freezers, the doors can differ depending on the model.
  • Bottom-freezer counter-depth refrigerators: Refrigerators of this type have freezer drawers as doors. However, instead of two refrigerator doors, it has one, making it the same as French door refrigerators.
