If you are remodeling a kitchen and going high end, you may be asking yourself: What is a panel ready refrigerator, and are they a good choice? If you want that really modern, high-end integrated look, a panel ready refrigerator may be a good choice for you. (For more tips on choosing a new fridge, check out our refrigerator buying guide!)
Panel ready refrigerators allow you to have your cabinet maker design a panel for the refrigerator doors that will match your cabinets, including the hardware like the handles. Panel ready refrigerators are typically only found in larger side-by-side or French door models and are more expensive than traditional models. They are usually purchased for very expensive homes along with other high-end appliances or as part of a designer kitchen remodel.
