Do you think a built in refrigerator is a must have?

Hi Everyone -

I'd love your thoughts on a built in fridge vs. a cabinet depth. In my last house I had a sub zero and loved it. For our new house I was planning a 42" Kitchen Aid with panels, but I can save about $3,500 if I go with a counter depth s/s fridge instead.

I'm planning a 48" range and s/s under cabinet awning hood, so I think that serves as a nice upgrade. I like the built in fridge because of how they look, but I can use the savings to spend on some serious trim carpentry upgrades that I think would be a better value.
