The preference between top mount and bottom mount fridges largely depends on individual needs and kitchen layout. Top mount fridges generally offer more freezer space and are often more budget-friendly. On the other hand, bottom mount fridges provide easier access to fresh foods at eye level, reducing the need for bending or stooping. Consider your storage priorities and kitchen space when deciding which option is better suited for your needs.
