Measure the Delivery Path
The narrowest pathway must be at least 1 inch wider than the width or depth (whichever is smaller) of your refrigerator.
Measure every doorway your new refrigerator will have to fit through, including the front door and elevator (if applicable).
Measure the Final Location
Be sure to account for decorative features such as baseboard moulding, crown moulding, trim, etc.
Ventilation and Cleaning Room
Measure for at least 1 inch of extra room at the top and back so it has proper ventilation and you can slide it out easily to clean dust.
Door Opening Clearance
Measure for refrigerator door clearance + 1 inch to ensure doors will be able to swing fully open.
Divide the width of the refrigerator by 2 and measure each side.
If your refrigerator is in front of an island, be sure you have enough space to open the doors.
Door Hinge Room
If there isn’t 2 inches of space on the door hinge side(s), the refrigerator will need to be pulled out about 2 inches so the door can open.
