Column freezers and column refrigerators have a sleek appearance in addition to several noteworthy benefits.
Where to Install: The installation of columns is based on the dimensions of a kitchen space. Generally, though, they are considered to be easy to install.
Units can be installed side by side for a more traditional look or you can install them separately in different areas of your kitchen.
PRO TIP: Columns, such as those from JennAir, often allow for up to 3 units to be installed side by side.
Customizable Size: Compared to standard side by side refrigerators, columns are highly customizable. You can choose both the size of your refrigerator and your freezer.
PRO TIP: If you’re considering JennAir® columns, remember that their column refrigerators are available in 24”, 30”, 36” and their freezers are available in 18”, 24” and 30”.
Flush Installation: Units can be built into existing cabinetry so that they sit flush with them to provide one seamless look.
Feel and Finish: These are typically higher-end units and can be rather costly. When shopping for a column, focus on features like multiple temperature zones, gliding crispers, sturdy bins, internal water dispenser, soft close doors and shelves. We recommend deciding early in the process what features are important to you and to set a realistic budget.
