  • Come in various sizes
  • Economic

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.
