Fixtures and Appliances: Refrigeration

An under-counter fridge, ice-maker, or wine cooler (shown) put food, supplies, or drinks within reach where guests and family members gather. Choose a swing-out door or a slide-out drawer based on how much floor space you have around your island. Appliances that vent out the front take up less room inside the island than ones with coils in the back, which require at least 2½ inches of space around the sides and back to stay cool.
