style summary

The finer points on Integrated, Built-in and Column Refrigerators.
Integrated refrigerator with wood paneling
  • Integrated refrigerators come in a myriad of styles, shapes and sizes.
  • Designed to have custom cabinet or stainless steel panels installed on their face fronts, integrated units blend seamlessly into any kitchen design.
  • Lining up perfectly with cabinetry and having no visible vents or hinges means that integrated refrigerators create a clean, streamlined look. Some models even offer handle-free opening.
  • That seamless styling provides the kitchen, wet bar, wine room or any other space in need of luxury refrigeration with a chic, custom feel.
Built in stainless steel refrigerator
  • Never contained within a shiny box, built-in units provide the freedom to mix and match styles and create the perfect refrigeration combination.
  • Built-in refrigerators come in a variety of sizes and layouts, including all-refrigerator, all-freezer, bottom freezer, and French-door models.
  • A built-in refrigerator is either finished on the front or ready to accept custom cabinet panels.
  • Designed to fit into a cabinet depth of 24 to 27 inches, these units can install flush or proud, depending on the kitchen cabinets.

What are columns? They are all-refrigerator, all-freezer or wine preservation towers that can be installed together or separately.

How do they benefit the homeowner? Columns can be mixed and matched based on design, space and capacity needs for fresh and frozen foods as well as wine.

Why are columns so popular with wine lovers? Columns allow wine lovers to proudly display their bottles in a custom arrangement.

Why are columns recommended for small spaces? Delivering a large refrigerator/freezer to a small space can be challenging. Because columns ship separately and install either together or apart—depending on your design—they provide an elegant and efficient solution.

smart design

Pioneering technology and thoughtful engineering make today’s luxury refrigerators ingenious, economical and environmentally friendly.
First introduced to the consumer market in 1927, the refrigerator went on to become the heart of the family kitchen over the next century. But it wasn’t until recently that this all-important appliance began its amazing evolution from a latter-day icebox to a resourceful and innovative tool that assists us in our quest to live better, eat healthier and lead more sustainable lives.

Thanks to advanced engineering, today’s luxury refrigerators and freezers offer a myriad functions such as dual refrigeration, humidity and climate control and air filtration systems that reduce food waste by creating ideal conditions for preserving the shelf-life and flavors of specific foods. There are also water filtration systems that provide pure drinking water and crystal clear ice, as well as Energy Star-rated models that go above and beyond federally mandated standards to help save energy and money.

Meanwhile, the latest smart technology has turned the family fridge into a high-tech helper and information hub. Able to communicate with our phones, tablets and home automation devices, refrigerators equipped with smart systems allows us to instantly control temperature, monitor performance and diagnostics, keep an eye on the freshness and integrity of our food, and audit our inventory so that we can plan meals and order what we want and need, all with the touch of a button.

star quality

To earn the ENERGY STAR® title, a refrigerator or freezer must use a minimum of 10-percent less energy than the federally-mandated standards. To achieve this, ENERGY STAR®-certified units contain high-efficiency compressors that create less heat and are more energy efficient, enhanced insulation that retains cold and preserves food, tightly sealed gaskets that keep cold air in and warm air out, and temperature and defrost mechanisms that ensure maximum operating performance.

cool factor

Luckily for today’s homeowners, there is a wide-range of luxury makes and models to suit every specific space and particular refrigeration need. And there are also a number of customizable features that provide tailor-made refrigeration for every taste and desire. Whether you’re looking to take advantage of the mix-and-match freedom of column refrigerators and freezers, display a perfectly preserved wine collection, or enjoy a favorite vintage, beer or spirits on tap—the possibilities are endless.

the wine list

Five things to consider about wine refrigeration.
  1. Most wine refrigerators have one or two temperature zones, while taller wine columns can have up to three. Finding a unit with the right number of zones is the key to keeping your reds, whites, roses and sparkling wines at their optimal temperature.
  2. Because sunlight can cause wine to age prematurely, it is best to purchase a wine refrigerator with UV-protected glass.
  3. Storing wine at a consistent temperature is another way to stop premature aging, so look for models with reliable temperature controls.
  4. Wine refrigerators with humidity controls keep corks from drying out, which helps preserve the flavor and composition of wines.
  5. Vibration can negatively affect the tannins in wine, so consider models that offer the greatest stability.

small, but mighty

Under-counter refrigerators bring big function to small spaces.
While counter-depth and column refrigerators are optimal in a small kitchen, compact condo or snug cottage, under-counter units can be the perfect choice for a wet bar, guest house, in-law suite or home office. Not only do they free up space in the main refrigerator, but they allow guests easy access to snacks, cool drinks and ice. And the fact that under-counter refrigerators, wine coolers, ice makers and drawer units combine forward-thinking features with low-key design means that they make a big impact while conserving space and preserving the view.
