Top Freezer Refrigerator vs. Side-by-Side Refrigerator

When it comes to deciding on a refrigerator for your kitchen, it’s reasonably likely that you’ll be choosing between two popular types: a top freezer refrigerator or a side-by-side refrigerator. With so much choice out there, though, it’s important to thoroughly analyze the differences so you can make the right selection for your home and needs.


In a nutshell, a top freezer refrigerator has a freezer compartment on top. This fridge option fits comfortably in most homes, so this might be a natural choice for you. Alternatively, the side-by-side refrigerator usually has a more ‘deluxe’ feel, with two doors/sides – one being a fridge, the other, a freezer. It’s likely that this type of fridge will have more features, which we’ll explore below. Let’s look at the pros and cons of each in more detail.
