    Choosing the Right Refrigerator Style for Your Home

    Last updated 7 days ago

    The kitchen is the heart of the home, and the refrigerator is one of the most important elements of the kitchen. In addition to having a refrigerator that looks good, it’s essential that you choose an appliance that meets your family’s food storage needs. Here are a few tips to help you select the right refrigerator style when you head to the appliance store.

    Get the Right Fit

    Before you begin looking at every refrigerator at your local appliance store, it’s important to narrow down your options by size. Carefully measure the area you have available in your kitchen to ensure your refrigerator will fit without extending beyond the countertops. In addition to measuring the spot where you will set the refrigerator, be sure to also measure the space between where the refrigerator will sit and the counter or cabinets across the way to ensure you’ll be able to open the refrigerator door completely. Don’t forget to measure the height to ensure you don’t purchase a model that’s too tall!

    Evaluate Your Storage Needs

    Once you have determined what size refrigerator you can fit in your kitchen, consider what style will work best with your storage needs. If you keep a lot of frozen items on hand, having a side-by-side model will be ideal. If the freezer is little used, consider a refrigerator option that has the freezer on the top or bottom. Refrigerators that have shelves which you can remove and rearrange can be helpful if you often store large items or entertain on a regular basis.

    Look for Style

    Modern refrigerators come in a variety of looks to fit any home design. Stainless steel options look great in everything from modern to traditional kitchens, but may not be ideal for homes with young children due to their tendency to show fingerprints. Refrigerators with coated metal exteriors can be a great alternative. If you enjoy a minimalist look, consider purchasing a model that can be integrated into your kitchen design with an exterior that matches your cabinets.

    Reasons to Choose an Energy Star Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

    Last updated 18 days ago

    Are you shopping for a new refrigerator for your home? Consider an Energy Star-certified model with a bottom freezer. When you purchase an Energy Star appliance, you can be certain that it meets high standards for efficiency. This means you’ll save money on your utility bills and lower your household’s environmental footprint. Choosing a refrigerator model that has a bottom freezer also offers numerous advantages. With a bottom freezer, you’ll never have to stand on your tiptoes trying to see what is at the back of the freezer—all items will be easily visible and accessible. This also means that you won’t have to worry about several items tumbling out of the freezer when you reach into the back for your favorite tub of ice cream. If you have children who often prepare their own snacks, choosing a refrigerator with a bottom freezer will make it easy for them to safely access the frozen items they need. You can even find freezers that offer a storage basket on the bottom shelf so you can easily store items that may be difficult to stack.
