With so many styles, options, variety, and prices available, buying a new refrigerator is not an easy decision. Here is what you should know to make the right choice.

Configuration: The most in-demand refrigerators are top-freezers, side-by-side, and bottom-freezers. Side-by-side refrigerators occupy less space for the doors to swing open, but you will have to bend down to access the lower or base of the fridge and freezer. Bottom-freezers which are like French-door models place the most-used compartment at eye level.

Top-freezers will cost you less but will require to bend to get into the fridge.

You can decide the type of freezer you want to buy based on the usage, the number of members in the family, how often you eat out, and so on. 

The basic types of freezers available apart from the aforementioned are Cabinet-depth and counter-depth refrigerators, and Four-door refrigerators. Call for IFB Washing Machine Service Center in Hyderabad in case your refrigerator is starting to give trouble. 

Dimensions: Your fridge should fit correctly between the counter space or the designated area, so you will need to match the width to the layout of the kitchen. Built-ins and cabinet-depth models stay flush with counters and cabinets but might cost you more.

Finishes: Stainless steel is the most popular finishing material because it has a sleek and neutral look. However, some people prefer a white or black fridge or a black stainless steel finish that is gaining popularity lately. Built-ins usually offer exterior paneling that matches with your kitchen cabinets. Finishes these days are fingerprint-resistant; hence, you do not have to worry about cleaning them regularly.

Features: Take into consideration the shelving and internal drawers to make sure if they work for your family's eating habits. If you are fond of wine and would like to store a few bottles of wine in the fridge, make sure there is ample height or adjustable shelving. Further, make sure there is enough space to fit in large boxes such as a pizza box. 

Sufficient storage compartments and flexible storage options. Storage is one of the basic and main features of a refrigerator. Therefore, you should not compromise and make sure it includes some features such as split shelves that create room for tall bottles, gallon door bins that free up interior shelf space, flexible bin dividers that make it easier to group items, and adjustable shelves that make room for oversized things. 

  • Humidity-Controlled Compartments. Leafy greens typically need a much higher humidity level than other foods. This feature allows you to store food items at the appropriate humidity levels so they can stay fresh longer.

    Some fridges also are configured with humidity controls on crisper drawers, meat or deli drawers, and other features for keeping foods at the ideal storage temperature.

  • Enhanced Lighting is important. Energy-efficient LED lights placed in the corners and over bins will make it easier to find what you are looking for.

  • Door Alarms. The alarm will beep or chime when the fridge door is not shut properly or fully, which will help you to prevent energy and food waste.

Some of the basic features that you can look for in refrigerators these days are automatic water, ice and beverage dispenser, fast-cooling compartments such as a chiller, and so on. If you want to go for even more high-end models, you can find Wi-Fi option on the fridge which will enable you to operate and control your appliance from a distance.
