The problem isn't the fridge sticking out beyond the counter per se. The problem is that our architect doesn't seem to have designed with this depth refrigerator in mind. There are units where you can't open the dishwasher or you hit the cabinets on the opposite side of a U when you open the refrigerator door. And one person in a wheelchair can't get her fridge door open even with a side-by-side refrigerator.
Ooops. That is a problem. When I moved into Doyle Street, I couldn't open my oven door because it banged into the closed dishwasher door handle. An architect would never design a door between rooms so it couldn't open. You'd think they'd have the same sort of sensibility about clearance for the doors of standard size kitchen appliances.
