Advice on built-in fridges

When looking for a new built-in fridge, you need to ask yourself 2 things: Which niche sizes does my built-in fridge need to be, and which door hinge system do I need? Are you afraid of installing and removing the fridge ? Use the Coolblue build-in service. We'll send someone over to remove the fridge. Your new fridge will be placed in the niche. You'll only need to know the correct niche dimensions and door hinge system.

Niche dimensions

niche dimensions

Before buying a built-in fridge, it's important to know where you want to place the appliance. It's also important to properly measure the niche dimensions. This way, you'll know for sure that your new fridge fits into your kitchen. How to do this exactly depends on the type of fridge you choose. You can choose from built-in fridge freezer combinations, built-in 1-door fridges, or under-counter fridges.

Hinge system

hinge system

There are two types of hinge systems for built-in fridges. With a door-on-door system, the cabinet door is mounted to the fridge directly, while a slider door system has 2 hinges. We recommend choosing the same hinge system. If you have a door-on-door system, you can't transfer to a fridge with a slider door system.

Build quality

Build quality fridges

The build quality says something about the sturdiness and lifespan of the fridge. To determine this, we look at various specifications, which we all give a score. The higher the score, the higher the class of the product. We make a distinction between basic, mid-range, and high-end fridges.

Cooling quality

Cool quality fridges

Cool quality says something about the way the fridge cools and how long you can store your groceries. A fridge with high-end cool quality has more than 70% of the relevant specifications. We distinguish between 3 classes to compare fridges. These classes are basic, mid-range, and high-end.

Extra functions
