Nowadays, there are all kinds of ways to make kitchen appliances look more stylish, such as the one above with the painted panels. Or the one below.
However, many families would greatly benefit from having specialty appliances in their kitchen and throughout their homes. These additional appliances can save time and be placed in garages, family rooms, dens or even dorm rooms.
A separate freezer is an excellent choice for large families or for someone with a garden who freezes produce. Freezers help people eat more healthfully because they can freeze vegetables for up to a year.
Families can also save money by purchasing large quantities of meat and frozen foods when they are on sale. Chest freezers are often cheaper and usually keep items colder than upright freezers do. However, many prefer uprights because they provide easier access to the food.
Those who need a little extra freezer space in their kitchens may want to consider an under-counter freezer, which can typically hold between 2.5 and five cubic feet of food. This would also work for those living in tiny homes, which are becoming more and more popular.
Another creative refrigeration option for the home is a beverage center or a wine cooler placed in a family gathering spot such as a den or game room. These small beverage center refrigerators make it easy to grab a soda or water without leaving the excitement. They can also hold small snacks.
Most of them are quite compact and are designed to fit easily under a counter or wet bar. A wine cooler keeps wine at the perfect temperature, and is a great option for those living in smaller homes without wine cellars.
Purchasing all refrigeration appliances from the same store or dealer can save frustration and time. It is important to find a store that one can trust to offer excellent prices and discount refrigerators.
It is also important to speak with a friendly, knowledgeable customer service representative about purchases and deliveries.
Average refrigerator capacity ranges between 9 and 30 cubic feet. As a rule of thumb, a family of two needs 8 to 10 cubic feet of fresh-food space. Add an extra cubic foot for each additional family member.
Freezer space: A family of two needs 4 cubic feet of freezer space. Add 2 cubic feet for each additional person. Increase the freezer space if you stock frozen products or shop infrequently. Top and bottom freezers offer the most storage flexibility. Side-by-side models may offer more total storage space, but sometimes it's difficult to store large or wide items in them.
Families are sure to be pleased when they outfit their homes with convenient and stylish appliances that both fit their own unique needs and look attractive as well.
