The best Refrigerator Buying Guide

French Door or Side-by-Side? Double Door or Single Door? There are endless options available – and a few things you should consider – when buying a new refrigerator. You need to think about the budget, the space available at home, and factor in running costs too. And when it comes to capacity, you should be realistic; think seriously about how much food your refrigerator should hold to properly service the whole household. Sounds complicated, right? Luckily, we’ve put together a comprehensive refrigerator buying guide to help you choose a refrigerator that’s perfect for you and your family.

Refrigerator Types

It’s important that you understand the different features of each type of refrigerator, so you can make an informed decision when buying yours.

French Door Refrigerators

French Door fridges are large capacity units with a multi-door design. Though standard French Door refrigerators are fairly wide (some models come with a capacity of over 800 litres), slim-line styles are available for those with limited space. These models have a contemporary appeal; they suit most modern kitchens, and have been designed with family living in mind.
Some French Door refrigerators come with smart technology – models like the Samsung Family Hub™ range, that can connect wirelessly to your smartphone, allowing families to share schedules and shopping lists. An internal camera lets you see the contents of your refrigerator, anytime you want, so managing food is much simpler. These fridges act as an entertainment system too; you can watch mobile content on the built-in screen, and stream your favourite music whilst cooking.

Side-by-Side Refrigerators

Side-by-Side refrigerators feature a set of double doors that open from the middle outwards; they don’t just have one single-hinged door, like traditional refrigerators. These units are great for big families, with some models having a capacity of up to 700 litres.
