If you live in a smaller space, it can be discouraging to walk through your average appliance store because hardly anything there seems made for you. “Bigger is Better” is the mantra most every retailer uses and the thought behind this is simple: a large appliance can look very powerful and dominate its surroundings, making it tough for consumers to pass by without taking a look. Also, in most every case, the larger the appliance, the larger the price, and the larger the profit.
However, a good percentage of us out here don’t have the money or the space for a large freezer. Or maybe we do already have a good-sized unit and want a second, smaller one for the garage or basement. Fortunately, a small upright freezer for home can take care of any food storage needs you have, while also fitting both your budget and home layout.
This also applies to refrigerators. Let’s say you would like a unit for your apartment or a fridge for craft beer. Small refrigerators are perfect for these needs and there are a number of different colours and designs to choose from. Separating your beer and other alcohol from the large fridge in the kitchen will also help keep it away from those not old enough to drink.
Another great thing about this size is that the unit is portable. Tired of having the fridge in the basement and would prefer it in the garage? You won’t need four people to help you move it there. These are also perfect for workplaces, cottages, and other places where there is really no need for a full-sized refrigerator.
Finally, a mini fridge won’t set you back nearly as much. They also use less electricity and many also offer other energy saving features as well. Don’t let the small size fool you: a well-maintained and cleaned mini fridge can provide many years of usage.
