    Hey all, just wondering how flexible a fridge is when fitting into a tighter space? It's 2mm though can make a big difference. Has anyone managed to fit a fridge in a smaller width space like this? Otherwise will have to go with a 55cm one. cheers

    Take a tape measure when you go shopping- that 600mm is nominal- shouldn't be greater than, might be less than. The most rigid bit of the fridge is the top trim. And measure the door & make sure it opens inside the frame width as well :)

    Spray furniture polish onto the floor and it should slide in. :sneaky:

    cheers guys. Yeah I think I will need to measure up in store if I can as not sure how accurate their measurments are. I am imagining the sides being panels to have a little flex in them. Trouble is most of the fridges I'm eyeing up are on ebay and not easy to track down in store
