Hello all! Piping in here … there’s no one perfect solution. What food do you keep in the refrigerator? I’ve been to communities that have PACKED refrigerators — packed w/ leftover food mostly. At Takoma Village, we keep very little in the refrigerator or the freezer. Leftover food from meals is distributed immediately — not stored —no science projects in our refrigerator. So a freezer on top may make sense. A pull out drawer bottom freezer (with racks so you can see to the bottom) may not work because there’s no space in our kitchen. But it may work for you. A side by side is an excellent for power wheelchair riders (and short folks) to access —but it needs more room. Freezer on the top means bending down to access the refrigerator section which is accessed more frequently than the freezer. I do echo the caution to look for appliances that are QUIET. A little noise goes a long way in our CH.
