Eight-cubic-foot refrigerators are usually between 50 and 60 inches in height. Fridges with these dimensions are generally considered to be compact models. They are often referred to as apartment fridges.
Eight-cubic-foot refrigerators are smaller than most standard-size refrigerators. Standard refrigerators can have a total capacity of 10 to more than 30 cubic feet, including the freezer. They are usually over 60 inches tall and can be more than 80 inches in height.
Fridges that are around 8 cubic feet in capacity tend to have the freezer directly above or below the refrigerator compartment, and they typically do not come in a side-by-side configuration.
