Apart from a working TV, a refrigerator is your staycation best friend. Bored? Let’s see what’s in the fridge. Hungry? Let’s open the fridge to check. Confused? Fridge again. Be it water or diet coke, leftover pizza or fresh ice cream, a refrigerator hold the key to your gluttonous needs. And so, we thought, if one appliance holds so much of your life together, why not put together a guide that will help you choose one that will be the best fit for you?
If you have ever gone refrigerator-shopping you would know that there are only two poles of opinion- “Eh, I don’t really care!” and “God, each one is as different as they come!”
What should you look for when you are out buying a refrigerator that will feed you and your family for the next couple of years? It’s not just about food, but over time, it becomes the centre of the entire living space. It takes upon itself to remember important dates, keep track of appointments and proudly show off a scribbled drawing of a dinosaur.
We have come up with a brief guide on the criteria that should be in your consideration when you go out shopping for a refrigerator.
- Ballpark Budget
Going blindly into buying a refrigerator, without setting a prior budget, can become a lot more confusing than having a ballpark Budget in mind. We can promise you that the final price will be of your liking.
There are two ways this practice can work in your favour. First, it can show you an exact picture of what you can expect in the price you have in mind. Second, it can provide you with a leeway to plan your budget according to your choice.
- Size Matters
Kitchens come in all shapes and sizes and they all have their unique set of requirements. A large, built-in, double door refrigerator will not be the first practical choice for a cabin. Similarly, a small capacity refrigerator will not work for a mansion. The need of the kitchen shall be the voice that dictates what model and make you should be looking for.
- Aesthetics Are Kind Of Permanent
Aesthetics might not be THAT important, but they are quite important, after all. Any kitchen that has a mismatching refrigerator will look unkempt and out of place. When you are buying a new refrigerator, keep in mind the overall look of your kitchen and how the new appliance would look in it.
- Smart Fridge Is Smart buy
Energy efficiency is cool and so is a built-in Bluetooth connection. Refrigerators these days are built with smart features and come with an energy efficiency quotient. Gone are the days when the basic models came with really basic, primary features. Nowadays, even the basic models have these smart features. Weigh your pros and cons carefully.
- Look Into The Details
The details are everything. They lie in the degree of cooling, the design, the compartments and the availability of flexible spacing inside the refrigerator. You might find the biggest bonus in the little extra space for fruits and vegetables, or maybe you would really appreciate the minutest changes in the temperature settings.
