What Type of Fridge Should You Get?

Are you wondering what type of new fridge you should buy? Here is some information that can help you in your search!


The First Thing You Need to Consider is the Size of Your Kitchen

If you have a large family, then it’s likely that you will want a larger fridge. How big, though? That depends on how much food your family goes through each week. If you only have a small family, then a smaller fridge will suffice just fine! Keep this in mind when selecting a type of fridge.

Side by Side Refrigerator

A side-by-side refrigerator gets its name from one side being a fridge and the other being a freezer. Some of the latest models have glass doors, so you can see inside easily without opening them up. Side-by-side refrigerators are great for small spaces and kitchens that aren’t very large. However, they tend to be a bit more challenging to organize since the shelves are thin.

Traditional Refrigerator

A traditional fridge usually has a fridge door on the bottom and a freezer door on top. The refrigeration section is typically the lower two-thirds, and the freezer is the remaining upper portion.  Compared to side-by-side refrigerators, traditional refrigerators offer a substantial amount of additional storage space.

Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

The freezer is typically a drawer on the bottom two-thirds of this type of fridge. The refrigeration section is in the upper two-thirds. This layout makes it very easy to organize and provides a lot of space. In most cases, it can store more items easily than comparable sizes of other fridge types.
