The smart way to find your Tradie


Find a Supplier

When building or renovating a house there a couple of things you need to consider about your fridge. Make sure that it will fit in the recess provided, bear in mind that the measurement shown on the plan is the brick set out, these walls will then need to be plastered so you must reduce

 the measurement by a minimum of 10mm per wall (if you have brick on both sides allow a minimum of 30mm). In order to allow the fridge to operate most effectively leave a recess at the back to allows air flow around the fridge. If you have overhead cupboards create a void behind

 the cupboards to allow increased airflow. By allowing air flow you will increase the life of your appliance and reduce the energy consumption.

The Facts

If your fridge has an inbuilt cold water outlet or an automated ice maker you will need a cold water tap in the recess itself. You may also like to check if the fridge has a built in water filter.
If you want your fridge to look like it is a cupboard, this is called being integrated. You need to ensure that the fridge you buy is suitable for this type of installation. This can look very effective by ‘hiding’ the fridge and giving a seamless look to the kitchen cabinetry. Remember once again to allow adequate ventilation to the space.

You may need to have the fridge delivered to the cabinetmaker in order to have the door made
The fridge recess will need a GPO (power point) which normally sits at 1600mm above floor level.
