An immaculate fridge

If your kitchen is white and you want to retain a sleek design, choose a model in the same color as your kitchen elements, which you will install between two storage spaces.

To prevent the refrigerator from overloading your kitchen, choose a two door or three-door model, which will require less space on opening the door. Modern and design, it will be perfect to intersect a work plan.

A visual separation

You can also place your refrigerator right next to the door so that you need not to walk inside the kitchen entirely to access the stuff.

At the intersection
