Typical Refrigerator Height


In order to figure out what the typical refrigerator height is you need to understand that there are different types of refrigerators. In order to capture the “typical refrigerator height” I analyzed the most common types of fridges, the most popular brands of these fridge categories, and then captured the heights of the highest rated fridges under these brands and categories.

The typical refrigerator height is 68.5″.

The five brands of refrigerators that we chose to analyze the typical refrigerator height are:

  1. LG
  2. Samsung
  3. Frigidaire
  4. Whirpool
  5. GE

The categories of refrigerators that we chose to analyze the height of are:

  1. Top freezer refrigerators
  2. Side-by-side refrigerators
  3. French door refrigerators
  4. Bottom freezer refrigerators

Important Note:

Note that all of the heights are the fully assembled height of the refrigerator. This means that it takes the height from the ground (bottom of the fridge feet) to the top of the cover of the fridge door hinge.
