What Is a Professional Refrigerator?

A professional-style refrigerator will generally be a bit larger than a standard-sized refrigerator. This means that the refrigerator's interior will be larger in cubic space, thus providing you with more room for your various foods, ingredients and beverages.

The look of your professional-style refrigerator for your home will still fit with the aesthetic of an upscale kitchen, with clean lines and durable stainless steel handles, but be inspired by the functionality of professional refrigerators found in restaurants.

What Are Standard Refrigerator Sizes?

Before going into detail about professional-style refrigerator sizes, it's essential to know the difference between the two and how much space a standard-sized refrigerator offers you. Typically, a standard, economical freestanding refrigerator falls within these dimensions:

  • 24 to 48 inches in width

  • 62 to 70 inches in height

  • 29 to 36 inches in depth

This sizing is typical and can commonly be found by many lower-end brands and manufacturers on the market. Similarly, builders and developers will often plan for standard refrigerator height and sizes when not opting for customized cabinetry or entryways. This is due to the ease of installation through different doorways in homes and the need to remodel an existing space in your kitchen designated for your refrigerator.

What are Professional-Style Refrigerator Sizes?

Professional-style refrigerator sizes will typically be larger than standard-sized and low-end refrigerators. Their inherent design is to accommodate more food items in your kitchen and allows for more flexibility in the interior configurations when it comes to different bins and shelving.

Width

A professional refrigerator will often be 30 inches to 60 inches wide. These oversized options will have larger shelves to include bulk amounts of ingredients, meats and beverages inside the refrigerator.

Height

You can find professional refrigerator heights similar to those of the standard-sized models. However, professional refrigerators can be 80 inches or higher. These larger options allow for more flexibility with shelf heights, so you can arrange your refrigerator based on the ingredients you frequently use, like larger beverage containers or different sauces.

Depth

The depth of a professional refrigerator will not be too far off from a standard-sized refrigerator, ranging from 26 to 33 inches.

How to Measure a Refrigerator for Your Kitchen

As every home is unique, so is the type of refrigerator you can install in your home. Many upscale kitchens allow consumers to go beyond the standard sizes and choose refrigerators customized to their lifestyles. However, it is essential to measure your space and see what professional refrigerator sizes are right for you and your lifestyle.

Measuring your entryways

First, measure the various entryways in your home to see what your space allows to be brought into your home. Standard homes will often be smaller than custom homes, so it's important to be aware of the available width of your entryways for installation before purchasing your new professional refrigerator. 

The different points you should measure should include the entryways into your kitchen, your front door or exterior door and any other doorways that will be used when installing the appliance into your space.

Measuring your cabinetry

It's also good to be aware of the space available for the professional-style refrigerator width within your cabinetry. Just because you know the size of your old refrigerator does not mean you shouldn't measure the allotted space again. The standard size of a cabinet opening is usually 36 inches wide. 

If you opt for customized cabinetry, there are endless possibilities and configurations you can choose from. This also includes getting a panel-ready unit that can accept custom-made panels to match your cabinetry.

Finding the Right Refrigerator Size

Before upgrading or purchasing a professional-style refrigerator, a good thing to consider is the size. If you are not remodeling your space, you have to consider the entryways and whether the refrigerator can fit into your existing kitchen.

These larger professional-style refrigerator sizes will often be designed wider than the standard size, so you must also consider the space you have to install the refrigerator or if you want to take on a remodeling project in your kitchen.
