Showcase cover image for Refrigerator enclosure

Project Information

This is a project I did over the winter with nothing by a circular saw and a router. I needed to build an enclosure for a new refrigerator (built in) that we were getting form my work.

I had to cut back the counter to ¾" and put a panel on top of that to get the proper width for the refrigerator. I also had to cut the panel around the upper cabinets with a tight fit as there was not room to add trim to hide the gap. In the end the fit was very good and was approved by my wife.

The stainless steel doors are a panel that can be removed, I plane to make wood panels when we redo the kitchen to match the rest of the cabinets.

The last picture is of my parent's refrigerator that I got for them at xmas time. The panels are not my work but a good example of what can be done.

Alex, You did a great job, especially using nothing but a circular saw and router. Looks like the refg. fits like a glove. Thanks for posting.

You sure did a great job with the limited tools that you have! Can you switch the door hinges to the left so you can open the door the other way? Some fridges allow you to do that.

You have to order it with the swing you want and that is the direction the wife wanted it to swing, if it was the other way it would open into the wall. They want an 1/8" reveal on the fit of the unit and i ended up with about a 1/16" I thought that was pretty good considering I didnt have the unit when I built the enclosure.
