Top-mount refrigerators, which feature the traditional design of having the freezer at the top and a refrigerator compartment below, usually have a measurement of around 65 to 69 inches in height and about 23 to 36 inches in width. Their depth ranges from 24 to 33 inches. Side-by-side refrigerators, which have two vertical doors, range from 67 to 70 inches in height and about 30 to 26 inches in width. Their depth is typically between 29 and 35 inches.

Counter-depth refrigerators typically have a shallower depth compared to other types of refrigerators with an average depth. They look more attractive than other refrigerators as they have a thinner form; however, they have a smaller cubic-foot capacity, making them less suited for large families.
