Your fridge should be in the food storage zone. Fridges should never be placed directly next to a heat source or in locations affected by direct sunlight for long durations. The refrigerator should always be close to a bench, a kitchen island, or a table with ample space. Wall niches or built-in kitchen cabinets are excellent places for fridges in ergonomic and modern kitchens.

However, your refrigerator does not have to be in the kitchen. It is up to you where you place it in your home, as long as the placement is comfortable and does not obstruct the traffic. Many homeowners have two refrigerators plus a separate freezer in utilities, basements, and garages. You want your refrigerator to be in a convenient place for you and your family while fitting with your overall kitchen design and lifestyle.
