These are Australia's most-wanted French door and side-by-side fridges
Discover five of the top larger-sized family-friendly fridges in Australia for 2019.
Although every home needs a fridge, for those living with larger families, with huge kitchens, or simply a strong cooking habit, you’ll be wanting something a little larger. Brands like Samsung, Westinghouse, LG and more are known for making some of the more premium fridges, including French door refrigerators that have their two primary doors that open side-by-side, often with some further drawer compartments.
While we've discussed some of the regular kitchen fridges under 600 litres in capacity in a separate article, this page is dedicated to picking some of the most popular large (over 600 litre) and French door refrigerators in Australia. Once you’ve found what you’re looking for, you can compare prices on the latest models or check out other options in the category.

If the above Samsung is a little too expensive, the 668-litre side-by-side fridge from LG offers a lot of the same convenience for a reduced price.

Standing 1,790mm tall, measuring 912mm wide and 738mm deep, this stunning side-by-side will soon be the centrepiece of your kitchen.

While this Samsung 714L fridge is much the same as the first one on our list, it comes at a considerably lower cost (roughly $700 or so on the street) by sacrificing the water and ice dispensing functionality. It still boasts four main door compartments, one of which can be converted from a freezer to a refrigeration area, and other modular options (like folding shelves to make room for tall bottles). It has the same dimensions as the Samsung SRF717CDBLS, above.

With a total of five ergonomic compartments, this premium 743L multi-drawer French door fridge is ideal for larger families and kitchen extraordinaires alike.

Available in brown, white or silver colours, the MR-WX743C stands 1,821mm tall and measures 800mm wide and 748mm deep.
RRP: $3,199 | More info: Official LG product page
