An enclosure is required to match up to the trim. To obtain the most integrated look, the cabinet or soffit above the refrigerator should extend out to the same depth as the side panels. The refrigerator opening must have minimum dimensions of 70 1/4" high x 36 1/8" wide x 24 1/2" deep for 23 cu. ft. models and 72 1/4" high x 36 1/8" wide x 24 1/2" deep for 25 cu. ft. models. If there is an overhead cabinet, allow for 1" for cabinet door clearance with the top trim piece so the cabinet doors can be opened without hitting the top trim. If 1/2" side panels are used, then side trim and panel will be even. If 3/4" side panels are used, then some of the side panel will extend beyond the trim and must be finished.
