[tweetmeme source=”plassappliance”]So you’ve purchased a brand new Built-In Refrigerator and are looking to add your own Panels. Here are 4 unique Panel options for your brand new Built-In.

Custom Wood: Custom Wood Panels are by far the most popular panel choice when it comes to choosing to add panels to a built-in. Creating custom panels to match your cabinets gives your kitchen a seemless and clean  look. Given the specifications provided by the appliance manufacturer, your cabinet-maker can simply create custom panels that match your cabinet design and look. Take note that there are three different types of Refrigerator models that accept Custom Wood Panels; Framed, Overlay, and Flush Inset. Each provides a different look and feel which you’ll need to notate to your cabinet-maker in order for them to create panels the right size and shape. Framed models accept wood panels that will sit inside of the exterior stainless steel frame of the Refrigerator unit. Overlay panels adhere to the doors of the Refrigerator and will cover the entire front of the Refrigerator matching your cabinets. Flush Inset Panels will also adhere to the doors of the Refrigerator however the look of the panels will allow Refrigerator to hide amongst the cabinets creating a kitchen where the Refrigerator is undetectable. Once you figure out which front custom panels you need for your new Built-In work with your cabinet-maker and be sure to provide all specifications. Custom wood panels add elegance and sophistication to your kitchen and are certainly a nice touch to consider for your new Built-In Refrigerator. See the example below of a Framed Sub Zero Built-In Refrigerator featuring Custom Wood Panels that match the Kitchen Cabinets.
