    If you have a side-by-side refrigerator, which side is the freezer on?

    I watched a cooking show yesterday, the cook was British, and the freezer was on the right side, the regular refrigerator portion on the left side. Exactly the opposite as it is here! I know the UK drives on the right side of the road and now wonder...are refrigerators likewise on opposite sides?

    Thanks!!! Looking forward to finding out....:)

    i think most of the ones usa style here sold in the uk have left side freezers
    otherwise we have the other style where the fridge is the top and freezer at the bottom

    I'm not sure it is a cultural issue though - just what is available to buy!

    We were looking at American style fridges in Currys and all of them had the freezer on the left :)

    PS: we drive on the left in the UK:)

    it'd be so different to have them changed, weve always had freezer on the left
