There’s a certain luxury you can’t achieve with the standard refrigerators you find in most retail stores. High-end refrigerators offer better features, sleeker styles, and more options to fit your lifestyle. So what is it that makes these refrigerators stand out from the rest? Let’s take a look at the top 4 high-end refrigerator brands.
When you think of luxury appliances, you probably think of Sub-Zero. If you’re looking for the best in residential refrigeration, a Sub-Zero refrigerator should be on the top of your list. Most Sub-Zero refrigerators are built-in, meaning that the unit lies flush with your kitchen cabinets. You can even choose a model that is panel ready so that the refrigerator integrates seamlessly with your cabinetry. Sub-Zero refrigerators come in several different configuration options that can fit any kitchen design including sizes ranging from 30″- 48″, undercounter refrigeration, refrigerator only or freezer only units, and wine refrigerators. The Sub-Zero brand is all about delivering the best product for the very best kitchens. Their website says it the best: “The world’s finest kitchens and most discerning people choose Sub-Zero.” Find more information about Sub-Zero refrigerators here.
