Information on standard refrigerator sizes can be found on several websites including Appliance Sizes, Rempros.com and Cnet. Refrigerator sizes vary based on manufacturer, model and style, so the sizes given are approximate.
A traditional-style refrigerator, with the freezer compartment on top, averages 29 inches wide, 31 inches deep and 66 inches tall. Top-freezer refrigerators are not the most stylish and usually don’t contain many advanced features, but they are a good choice for a basic refrigerator and freezer.
Bottom-freezer refrigerators are a little larger than top-freezer models, with an average width of 29 inches, a 32-inch depth and a height of 67 inches. By switching the refrigerator and freezer locations, the refrigerator, which is used more often, is easier to reach.
Side-by-side models have an average width of 35 inches, a depth of 30 inches and stand 71 inches tall. With the split configuration, the doors do not open as wide, making this style ideal for saving space in small kitchens. These models often contain more features, such as in-door ice and water dispensers.
French-door models, which combine a split refrigerator above a freezer compartment, average 35 inches in width, 29 inches in depth and 68 inches in height. Many of the more advanced features are found in these refrigerators.
