The days of the space-hogging fridge may be numbered. Under-the-counter refrigerator drawers—almost all of which come with a choice of stainless steel or custom panel ready fronts—are offering a discreet new way to keep things cool.
The hitch: These designs currently come at a steep cost (that’s an understatement). Most often they’re used as fridge supplements that hold drinks and produce, and allow the main fridge to be a bit less monstrous.
Two fridge drawer challenges to keep in mind: Arranging the contents, can, as one of our readers put it, “require a Tetris-like approach.” And most necessitate bending down, making them less than ideal for those with knee or back issues.
