When buying a cheap fridge, start by looking at the size of the kitchen including where the fridge is likely to be positioned and how big a fridge you can purchase.
Then look at height, depth and width as these are the dimensions that will help decide whether or not the fridge can be taken into the required area to avoid damage along the way (under door frames or past staircases).
The style of the fridge can now be considered depending on the look and feel of the kitchen and the main purpose of the fridge. For example, there are many styles of the fridge’s available including but not limited to wine cabinets, under cabinet fridges, tall fridges or even fridge-freezer combos. These need to then be linked with other things such as color schemes to match the overall appearance of the house as well as the type of look and feel you are trying to give to the kitchen whether it’s a plain modern, contemporary or Victorian-style look and feel.
You can then look at the different models available and the features that they have, including internal compartments for bottles, eggs, and dairy products as well as deep door storage for milk gallons or medication.
In order to be energy efficient, you then need to consider energy consumption levels, holiday settings, as well as adjustable thermostats and automatic fridge, defrost features.
Additional things that can be considered are insurance for breakages and minor repairs if the fridges switch off due to extreme weather conditions.
Finally, you then need to look at the manufactures and the different retailers that sell these products in order to determine where you can get the best possible deal from. Some retailers also provide kitchen designing software to help build the virtual kitchen and plan how the kitchen would look once the appliances have been put in so if it’s a new move with complete re-decoration then maybe this is a service that can be considered when looking at the different retailers and their products and prices.
As an example, you may want to consider buying a large American style fridge-freezer combo as they have a very large capacity (which is very much suitable if you have a very busy and large family). The main feature of the American style fridge-freezers is that they have ice dispensing compartments which are very useful for any busy household, especially in the spring and summer months. However, they can appear deceptively large from the outside so always open it to make sure that it contains everything you want it to contain in terms of size and features such as ice dispensing or even a TV at the front of the door to keep you entertained whilst you are cooking!
