Food (and wine) storage requires a commitment. The big appliances that house our food and drink often do so with little regard for their surroundings. Considering that these appliances dominate the kitchen landscape, it should be easy to make them act and look like we want them too. The Thermador 2012 Freedom Collection would agree.

The ability to customize the kitchen according to how we see fit is an achievable goal thanks to the modular styling of the collection. The built-in appliances include customizable refrigerators, freezers, and wine-storage units with a host of improvements that have been applied to the collection for 2012. New features include LED theater sidewall lighting with automatic dimming, a full-width customizable ice drawer, and stainless-steel exterior ice and water dispensers.

The collection not only highlights the ability to mold the functionality of the appliances to individual preferences, but also how they look. While the classic refrigerator/freezer combination appliance is tried and true, that doesn't mean it always has to be that way. Options exist within the collection for dedicated functionality; the wine fridges, freezers and refrigerators are available in a variety of widths that also include column units that allow for them to be installed in separate locations. As a final touch, the paneling is adjustable in three dimensions for flush installation, making it easy to create a seamless environment in the kitchen--one in which the landscape is exactly to your own liking.
