Prices of 24-inch fridges and full-size fridges can vary greatly, but in many cases a smaller refrigerator is less expensive than a larger one. Exact prices are generally based upon a refrigerator's quality, manufacturer and special features.
Fridge capacity is measured in cubic feet. Because smaller fridges are less common they can sometimes cost more per cubic foot than a larger fridge. Smaller fridges may also need to be special-ordered, which can mean they are not on sale as often, further increasing the cost per cubic foot. Commercial-grade 24-inch fridges can also be more expensive than some consumer-level full-size fridges.
