This is prolly true :) One more thought... The Stainless looks great - WHEN IT"S CLEAN. It smudges easily and is a nuisance to clean. If a painted fridge would work, you will save your self some work (and cash). We almost put in black.... Magnets don't stick to stainless either.

My partner uses a ton of ice, and he would be annoyed with the bottom freezer. I did like the fridge being elevated, that seems like it would be a cool feature. I just couldn't get past a comparable sized bottom freezer model was hundreds more for the single door and over double for the french door! We may use the freezer more than the average person though.

If we didn't have a deep freeze the icemaker would definitely get in the way, it does take up about a 1/4 of the freezer.

My main thought would be do not get a side by side. Things do get lost in the back because you can't see in that well. My sister just had a new house built and her fridge is the french door freezer on the bottom. you can see EVERYTHING in there. The one thing I don't like about them is having to open the door for cold water. Someone is always getting water from our fridge and that wouldn't be a good thing to open the door each time.
