Compact fridges work well in small areas where every square foot counts and are ideal for apartments or small kitchens. They tend to be slimmer with a width of 24 inches, yet maintain standard heights of 60 to 75 inches. The common capacity for these models range from 11 to 13 cubic feet.

What size is a small fridge with a freezer?

Small refrigerators with a separate freezer compartment are a great option for saving space and keeping frozen foods on hand. You can find models with 3 - 3.5 cubic feet of freezer storage in addition to around 9 - 9.5 cubic feet of refrigerator space.

A mini fridge is a great addition to small space dorm rooms while an apartment sized fridge may be a better option for larger dorm rooms or small shared kitchen spaces.
