Choosing the Right Refrigerator When Remodeling Your Kitchen

Ehrler after (7) - compressed

Remodeling a kitchen is exciting—the work can be tough, but the finished product is well worth the time and energy. More and more people are opting to purchase houses that need a few updates, or even just deciding to remodel their own spaces rather than buy a new home. One of the most common rooms that give homeowners grief is the kitchen. A bad kitchen can take a fabulous home and turn it into an unwelcoming shell. Simply remodeling your kitchen and modernizing with custom kitchen cabinets, a great backsplash or a fresh coat of paint can go a long way. The magic that a few easy touches can do might surprise you!

An additional eyesore that bothers homeowners are outdated appliances, specifically the refrigerator. Old refrigerators look just as they are—old. Yours might not be very functional, it might stick out like an ugly sore thumb or it might have just seen some much better years. Whatever your reasons for not liking your fridge, it is time to purchase a new one. Here are some tips for choosing the right refrigerator for your kitchen.

Meeting the Needs of Your Family

If this is your first time buying a refrigerator, you might be overwhelmed with all the choices that are on the market. You would think that a fridge would be a simple, straightforward appliance—that might have been true in the past. Modern refrigerators come in all shapes and sizes, so there are many ways to customize your fridge, including adding some awesome modern technology. Since most people are not in the market for a fridge that has Bluetooth connectivity capabilities, stick to the basics and find an appliance that will function well in your home. Some factors to keep in mind include:

  • The size of your kitchen, and the space that the fridge fits into
  • The size of refrigerator that you would like to have to meet your food storage needs
  • The freezer space that your family needs
  • Your budget
  • Exterior design

Be sure to make a list of your wants and needs, and bring it with you while you are shopping. Your sales technician should be able to help you to find a refrigerator that best matches your list and budget.

Modern Features

The modern refrigerator is pretty impressive. You will be delighted to find that there are a variety of features and options available to make life in your remodeled kitchen easier. While some features are important, others are luxuries. These features often include energy efficiency, adjustable shelves and drawers, temperature control, ice makers, water dispensers, and much more. Once again, make sure that you go shopping with your list of wants and needs!
