Sub Zero Refrigerator Installation Options

Options for Installing your Sub-Zero Built-In Refrigerator

It's no surprise that you want your Sub-Zero refrigerator to have a stunning appearance in your new kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of your home, and the new Sub-Zero refrigerator you are purchasing is the cornerstone of your kitchen.

Here are some of the choices you may need to make regarding the configuration of your refrigerator that will determine how it looks in your kitchen.

  1. Perhaps you are buying one of the very popular standard Sub-Zero Built-Ins with a stainless steel front, such as the BI42SD. You may elect to have it installed (by Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center) in a standard 24″ deep cabinet. The refrigerator cabinet itself is 24″ deep. The doors will not be flush with the cabinet and stick out a couple of inches. Most of the time this is not a big issue, and the stainless version is by far the most common configuration of a standard built-in refrigerator. There are some more custom options with this model, however.
  2. It is possible to have a flush inset installation if the refrigerator is recessed or with deeper cabinets.
  3. You may also want custom wood panels that match the cabinets. In that case you can order the refrigerator without the stainless steel doors so that it will accept custom panels. You may elect to have the custom panels fit into a frame for a framed installation, or you could have them installed as custom overlay panels which would be configured without a frame. Even with custom panels, you would have the ability to have the refrigerator installed in a standard depth configuration with the wood doors sticking out a couple of inches, or in a recessed installation for a flush fit. So you can see that as you start to combine these options the possibilities multiply. But we're not done yet.
  4. SubZero makes column refrigerators and wine cabinets that can be installed as integrated units so that they are not only flush inset, but that they are totally integrated with the surrounding cabinets revealing no hinges and disappearing into the surrounding decor.
