Here are some factors you should consider before buying a built in refrigerator.

● Check if you have the right space in your kitchen to accommodate the built in refrigerator, you have been eyeing in the market. Measure the space required to get its cabinet built, taking into account the dimensions of the appliance and the ventilation space needed for it.

● As built in refrigerators come in different high end price ranges, it may be worth your while to estimate your budget. Look for a built in refrigerator that will give you the needed features, longer service life, and fits within your decided budget. Do not forget to factor in the costs that may be incurred for installation and building cabinetry.

● Check if the depth of the refrigerator will satisfy your specific storage needs. As these tend to come with lesser room than freestanding models, it would be beneficial to check if the size and capacity of the refrigerator will work for your family, before you purchase one.

● Consider the energy rating of the model as the better rating  and the kind of compressor it has, as this will determine how energy efficient it will turn out for you in the long run. 

Yes, depending on the size of your built in refrigerator, you may have to make changes to your kitchen layout. Since a built-in refrigerator cannot be moved after it is placed - it is important to assess the changes that need to be made before you purchase a built-in refrigerator. 

If your built in refrigerator is to be fixed in a wall, then you may have to make certain changes to your current kitchen layout to create space for it. Factors such as adjusting the opening width and depth for the refrigerator to fit in well also come into play here. However, if you already have space for building the cabinet for it, then you may not have to make any changes.
