Advice on fridges

What should you look for when buying a fridge? Step one is choosing a free-standing or built-in fridge. You can place a freestanding fridge anywhere where you have a socket. A built-in fridge can be integrated in a niche in your kitchen. In this article, we'll tell you which fridge suits you.

Freestanding fridges

You can place a freestanding fridge anywhere you want, like your kitchen, storage, or living room. You don't have to worry about kitchen cabinet sizes and niche dimensions. That saves you a lot of thinking and measuring. Make sure to check whether the dimensions of the fridge correspond with the place you want to put it. Freestanding fridges come in all shapes and sizes. There are fridge freezer combinations, compact fridges, mini fridges, American fridges, and standard fridges.

Built-in fridges

The advantage of a built-in fridge is that you don't see it. Instead of a big plain gray or white appliance in the middle of your kitchen, your fridge will be nicely hidden behind your kitchen cabinets. It's very important to carefully measure the space where you want to place the fridge. You should look at the hinge type. There are 2 types of built-in fridges. These are standard fridges and fridge freezer combinations.
