Yes, refrigerators need to breathe. If they are entirely boxed in, then there's not much room for ventilation. When you measure the space required in your kitchen for the refrigerator and compare it to the appliance size, it is advisable to leave at least 1 inch of extra room for the back and the top of the refrigerator for proper ventilation. On the sides, you may generally leave around half an inch each. 

However, often a refrigerator already comes with a set of instructions on the required ventilation space for it. You must ideally use the ventilation measurements given by the brand.

A family of 4 members will need a refrigerator that can accommodate an average capacity of 250 to 330 litres. One must also carefully consider if the size of the fridge fits their kitchen space well enough. Most of the Hafele premium built-in refrigerators come in a capacity of 300 Litres with their standard size dimensions being 555mm X 545mm X 1772mm (W X D X H - 21 x 21 x 69 inches)

Yes, any fridge can be made built in if your kitchen layout and cabinet sizes allow for it! Here are some tips on how you can make any fridge look integrated and give a seamless design to your kitchen.  

Built-in refrigerators usually come with lesser depth as they need to sit “flush” with the cabinets, giving a modern well-fitted look to your kitchen. If your regular refrigerator has more depth, you can simply build a larger cabinet for the fridge which matches its extra deep depth.  

Another way is to use the wall spaces well in your kitchen design. For example, if you own a freestanding refrigerator, you can simply recess it a few inches into the wall to get that "built-in look". You can also have your entire refrigerator actually built into a wall, if your kitchen design allows for it.
