LEARN THE BENEFITS OF COLUMN FREEZERS AND COLUMN REFRIGERATORS

Column freezers and column refrigerators have a sleek appearance in addition to several noteworthy benefits.

Where to InstallThe 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. 

Popular Features for Column Refrigerators

AMPLE AND CONVENIENT STORAGE CAPACITY

Column refrigerators offer a useful amount of storage space. Column units come in a variety of widths, providing you with the flexibility to choose the capacity that best suits your needs. 

LOCATION

Columns don’t need to be installed together. You can opt to install your refrigerator in one location and your freezer somewhere else in your kitchen. 

PREMIUM FEATURES

Soft-close-doors, shelves, gliding crispers and sturdy bins offer functionality and a ton of appeal. Certain manufacturers may even offer additional features, like a stainless interior, LED lighting and multiple temperature zones.

CONNECTED

Some column refrigerator units are WiFi enabled, allowing them to be connected to a smart device. The benefits may include monitoring and adjusting refrigerator and freezer temperatures, tracking the life of your water filter and receiving various alerts and notifications.

SEAMLESS DESIGN

Handle-free columns can be opened with ease and contribute to a seamless kitchen design.

SOLUTION FOR SMALL SPACES

Galley kitchens and many urban kitchens won’t have the space to fit the 48” side-by-side fridge you want. Don’t fret, though, because column refrigerators offer various cabinet-depth options for smaller kitchens.
