If you live in an apartment, you know how much every square foot counts. That’s why the best small space refrigerators fit in full-sized features and maximize flexibility to help keep food visible and organized. This article will help you find the answers to your apartment refrigerator questions:
What is an apartment refrigerator?
Designed to fit into small kitchens, 24" wide apartment refrigerators are slimmer than a 30–36" wide standard refrigerator, but are usually in the same 60–75" height range. This means that apartment fridges have more storage than a dorm or mini refrigerator, with interiors similar to a full-size fridge. To see if a small space refrigerator works for you, learn what to consider when measuring to fit a refrigerator.
What should I consider when shopping?
Look for exterior features that help you easily navigate a small kitchen, like reversible doors and counter-depth models. On the inside, shelves that slide back to make room for tall items help you use the same space for different purposes.
Style and Layout

Where else can I use a small space refrigerator?
Apartment refrigerators aren’t just for city apartments. If you have a condo, mother-in-law suite, vacation rental, tiny home, accessory dwelling unit (ADU) or entertainment space, a smaller refrigerator might be right for you.
