French door refrigerator wall clearance

In planning my new kitchen, the best place to put my fridge is pretty close to a wall. Looking at the 22-ish cubic foot models, they're about 32 to 33 inches wide.

How far out from the wall do I need it to rest so that I'll be able to open the doors fully enough to open the drawers all the way? Will a foot (doable) be enough?

    Talk to your appliance dealer. They will have that info.

      You can also google your model online and review the technical specs - it will show open door clearances.

        And -- DUH -- so it is, right on the specs sheet. I was sure I'd checked that over and over.

        On the GE I am going for, it's just 12 3/8". Good news for those of us with a fridge in the corner.
