Apartment Size Refrigerator
An apartment refrigerator may or may not be included when you rent and if you buy an apartment or a condo as it
is called here in the States you definitely will need to find the right apartment size refrigerator when you move
When you think of the phrase apartment size refrigerator you tend to lean toward smaller refrigerator freezers
but in truth they usually fall into the medium sized refrigerator classification. If you have a small
apartment like a studio or dorm smaller compact refrigerators should be part of your research before you choose
between apartment sized refrigerators.
Some of the harder to find features in apartment sized refrigerators usually revolve around a few points.
The first is whether the models and brands that you like come with an ice maker. The second are the options
for the freezer location. Apartment size refrigerators with a bottom freezer are usually harder to find
since that feature usually comes with larger cubic feet models. The same can be said for whether your
apartment refrigerator will come with an ice maker or not. Though a variety of colors have become more
available for fridges stainless apartment refrigerators are usually not that standard since they usually cost
more. People who live in apartments usually want to spend less on their appliances than say someone who has
bought a larger house.That being said if you do a quick search on Amazon you can see that Summit and
Danby have stainless refrigerators in apartment sizes. Some only include a stainless door so make sure you
buy the right one if you care about having it be all stainless.
An apartment size refrigerator can sometimes cause problems depending on the size. Smaller refrigerators
sometimes do not get cold as quickly as you would like because of the size of the cooling unit. Make sure to
do some research on which models have bad reviews so that you avoid the ones with obvious problems.
Besides the normal space considerations to keep in mind when choosing an apartment size refrigerator you
need to understand 2 specific challenges. The amount of space needed for the swinging of the doors may be
more important to some smaller apartment dwellers. I used to live in an apartment with a very small kitchen
that had wall that had an opening to a dining room living room setup. The wall was maybe 3 feet away
from the beginning of the refrigerator and the refrigerator door would bump into that wall regularly. Because
of this it was also hard to take out and put in big items. Make sure you understand both how much space you
are going to need for your apartment size refrigerator but also how you will need to use the space.
The second specific challenge is being able to move your new apartment refrigerator
into both the building and your specific unit. Many city apartments especially older ones do not have
elevators and have steep, narrow stairs to boot. Whether you are moving it yourself or not you may find
yourself over your head in terms of moving expertise. Though professional appliance movers have their
tricks(like removing doors...) there may be cases when the apartment sized refrigerator involved just won't get
through. That would be a costly and irritating experience so make sure to measure the entry way, stairs and
your apartment door too.
