Built-In refrigerators have a great look, but it doesn’t come cheap. The extra cooling issue with a built-in fridge, and need for exacting dimensions, contributes to this cost. But when comparing to freestanding refrigerators with similar features and specifications, it becomes clear there is a large “luxury” cost associated with these refrigerators.
Still, that’s not enough to scare everyone away. The look is so beautiful that this extra cost can be justified in many situations. KitchenAid’s line of built-in refrigerators is actually one of the less expensive that you’ll find. They come in stainless steel or custom panel looks. (You’re responsible for supplying the panels, which means you can match your kitchen cabinets perfectly.)
