Thinking about making your next refrigerator purchase a side by side? Side by side refrigerators keep your favorite, often-needed items in the fridge and freezer at the ideal height. No need to bend over like with top or bottom freezer refrigerators! 

In this article, we compare two amazing options from powerhouse brands LG and Samsung to help you find the best side by side refrigerator for your needs. 




The LG LSXS22423S is a 22 cubic foot side by side refrigerator that fits 33’’ openings. Six temperature sensors maintain an even interior temperature, and a door alarm plus auto door-closing hinge help you keep your food fresh and conserve energy. The fridge is available in stainless at $1,699, black at $1,599, and white at $1,599.

Spill Protector tempered glass shelves help make cleanup a breeze, and this side-by-side also incorporates an ice maker into the inside door to maximize storage space while still offering an ice and water dispenser option. It’s also one of the narrower side by side models available, making it one of the best side by side refrigerator options for kitchens with limited space.



  • 22 cu. ft. capacity

  • SpacePlus Ice System in-door ice dispenser frees up shelf space

  • LED lighting

  • Spill Protector tempered glass shelves
  • ENERGY STAR Certified

 The Samsung RH25H5611SG is a high-end model with tech-savvy features that make it an obvious option for the best side by side refrigerator! Choose from classic black or white at $1,999, sleek stainless at $2,099, or try out the newer color option of black stainless (pictured below) at $2,299. 

Every time you open your refrigerator, you’re letting in warm air - that means your fridge has to work harder to keep your items cool. Samsung’s Food ShowCase design helps you reduce temperature fluctuations and improve energy efficiency by adding a second layer to your refrigerator door.  To learn more about how door in door refrigerators work, read our full article on that topic. The OuterCase offers narrow bins for storing condiments, drinks, and other frequently used items while keeping the InnerCase (the main fridge area) cool.
