Are you wondering what’s the difference between integrated vs built-in refrigerators? At first glance, they may seem like the same thing, but there are some little-known key differences between the two types:
1. An integrated refrigerator is installed inside an enclosure so it sits completely flush with its surroundings and the counter.
2. Built-in refrigerators don’t sit flush with their enclosure or the counter, protruding outward by 1-2 inches.
3. Both are panel-ready so they can blend better with your cabinetry, but each will look different due to the difference in installation.
