Fridge Types – Choosing the Right Fridge for your Kitchen
Sometimes we choose fridges according to the space we have. But if you have the space how do go about picking the right style? What are the pros and cons of different fridge types? Here’s a couple pointers, pros and cons to help you choose the right fridge for your kitchen…
Single Freezer Top Fridge
- Traditional fridge has the freezer up top and fridge down the bottom
- Come in various sizes
- Plenty models to choose From
- Freezer is usually small
- You’ll have to bend down to get to the fridge part
Single Freezer Bottom Fridge
- Food is at eye level when fridge is on top
- Generally the freezer is larger when it’s at the bottom
- Comes in loads of various styles
- Typically more expensive than freezer top fridges
- Bending down to get things out the freezer (which are usually heavier)
- Freezer drawers can be tricky to sort out on your haunches!
Double Door Fridge
- Loads of space!
- Freezer and fridge both at eye level so minimal bending down to get stuff!
- This style often comes with a tap too
- They take up space, but of course if you have it – use it!
- More expensive but you get a lot more space
French Door Fridge (fancy fridge type!)
- This fridge is amazing. Lots of space; shelves, drawers and pull out drawers at the bottom
- Lots of door storage
- They are a lot more expensive than most fridges due to the sheer size
- Not easy to get into your home if you have narrow door frames
- You’ll have to bend down to freezer drawers
- Takes up a lot of space
Large and Compact Fridge Types
Pigeon pairs and larder style fridges are excessively big and not very common in most homes unless you have loads of space. There generally isn’t a huge choice of models either. Compact fridges are ideal for apartment living. They’re usually pretty inexpensive, but can be limited and you usually have to bend down to access it if you don’t have it on something.
