Refrigeration Built into Cabinetry vs. Freestanding


  • What is the difference between a freestanding unit and a unit built in to cabinetry?
  • Freestanding vs. built-in units
  • Can Sub-Zero units be installed freestanding?


Most Sub-Zero units are designed to be built into a run of cabinetry and to integrate seamlessly into the kitchen.

  • Freestanding units are installed on their own, without cabinets surrounding the unit.
  • All Sub-Zero units may be installed in a freestanding application. Refer to Sub-Zero Freestanding Installation for more information.

Refer to the product Installation Guide for further installation information.
