I want to have the built in look for my fridge, but I am not so big on the shallow depth models. If I build my countertop a few inches deeper, is there a way to use a standard ref. with the cabinet panels to get the look without the expense or limited selection? Are there any ways to have an unfitted look without the standard sub-zero appproach? Is a ref. closet a dumb idea? Can you screw into a ref. door without destroying the appliance, efficiency, mfr. warr.? thanks

You should be able to. If you get a model with any kind of 'through the door' dispenser, you'll likely have a much harder time putting anything on the door.

If the model you want to purchase doesn't have a trim kit for panels available for it, you should be able to have one made to size by the company at the following link:

BTW. Before building any kind of enclosure for it, be sure to read the manufacturer's installation instructions as most require at least some open space surrounding them.

Be careful to pay attention to how the door opens. What space does the corner of the door require when it opens.
