While all refrigerators provide the same service, not all of them are created equal. Over the years, refrigerators have morphed into all different shapes and sizes to provide homeowners with a unique look. Let’s take a deeper look into the refrigerator options on the market and go through some of their advantages and disadvantages:
This is the refrigerator model that graces most American kitchens. The freezer takes up about ⅓ of the total volume and it is positioned on top of the refrigerator section.
- Advantages- Price, easy to use, space-friendly
- Disadvantages- Unorganized freezer, swinging doors, less efficient
Take a top-freezer, flip it upside down and you have a DIY bottom freezer unit. Totally kidding, but you get the point. A bottom-freezer is configured the same way a top-freezer is but the ice box is underneath the refrigerator section.
- Advantages- Price, easy access to fresh foods
- Disadvantages- Swinging doors, difficult to assess frozen foods
This model provides an even amount of refrigerator and freezer space. They are narrower than classic refrigerators and they come with more shelves and compartments for organization. Most new side-by-side models also come with a water dispenser that will provide your family with fresh, filtered water.
- Advantages- Convenient access, freezer capacity, space-friendly
- Disadvantages- Less fridge space, price
This style combines the advantages of both side-by-side and bottom-freezer configurations. The refrigerator section features swinging doors that provide ample room for all platters, Tupperware and groceries. The bottom freezer section works the same way it would on a top or bottom freezer.
- Advantages- Elegant design, versatility, efficiency
- Disadvantages- You get what you pay for, and you’re going to pay a lot.
