Making room for the fridge

I am getting my cabinets refaced and have a problem with the cabinets above the fridge. The space is 69 1/4 and I need 69 3/4 in order for the fridge to fit. Is it possible for them to cut an inch off the bottom of the cabinet before refacing it in order for the fridge to fit.

Depending on the manufacturer but i would say an inch would be to much to cut off.
You may be able to take a 1/2" off but 1" would be cutting in to the actual bottom of the cabinet.

Maybe you can take the legs off the fridge ,that will give you an extra 1/2" ...

Is it possible to move that particular cabinet up?

if you are refacing the cabinets are you also replacing the doors?
if you are just get a 36x12 cabinet for over the fridge and let them reface it to match. i just replaced my kitchen cabinets but checked to see how high new fridges are. i went with a 12 inch high cabinet instead of a 15 and put a 3 inch filler under it so when our old fridge goes i can adjust it to the new height.
