Upgrading to a larger-capacity home refrigerator gives you more cubic feet of storage for family-favorite fresh foods like meat, dairy and produce, as well as prepared foods and leftovers. If you have a large family, this extra storage space can help ensure that you have plenty for everyone while storing more essentials. With a large capacity refrigerator, you can stock up on food and cut down on trips to the grocery store.

How big is a “large” or “extra large” refrigerator?

While there’s no official threshold that defines a refrigerator as “large” or “extra large,” when your current refrigerator no longer stores enough to meet your family’s needs, that’s a pretty good indication that it’s time to upgrade to a larger fridge.

The largest-capacity refrigerators from Whirlpool measure up to 36 inches wide and over 70 inches high, so you’ll need to be sure you have adequate room available to install a larger appliance. Depth is also a consideration; some kitchens lack the space for a deeper refrigerator. Whirlpool offers some counter-depth refrigerator options that will still allow you to get a lot of cubic foot storage from your available footprint.
