Choosing a new appliance can be a daunting task. The amount of choice can be overwhelming and sometimes you just don’t know where to start. At Home Feeling, we have a great range of fridge freezers to choose from. So, if you don’t know which fridge freezer will suit you and your kitchen the best, we’ve put together this handy guide.

How do I know which fridge freezer I should choose?

Freestanding Fridge Freezers

Freestanding fridge freezers should easily fit into most kitchens. As long as there’s a plug socket nearby and enough space, you can place the fridge freezer wherever you like. You should always double check the measurements to ensure you have sufficient space. You'll also need to ensure that there is enough space around the fridge freezer for air to circulate.

Benefits of freestanding fridge freezers:

  • They can be placed anywhere in a standard kitchen.
  • All you need is a plug socket.
  • You can choose between models that have the freezer at the top or the bottom.

Integrated Fridge Freezers

If you’re having a full renovation of your kitchen, then you may choose to go for an integrated fridge freezer. This can limit your choice of models as you will have to ensure that it will fit inside a standard sized cupboard. Integrated fridge freezers are becoming more popular in modern kitchens.

Benefits of integrated fridge freezers:

  • You can coordinate your fridge freezer with the rest of your kitchen
  • Your appliance will be hidden from view, sitting inside a cupboard.

American Style Fridge Freezers

American style fridge freezers, also sometimes referred to as ‘side by side fridge freezers’ feature double doors that open from the middle outwards. They are the biggest style of fridge freezer that we have on offer and are very popular amongst those who have more modern kitchens.

We currently have two different styles of American style fridge freezers in our range: one with a water dispenser and one without. If the idea of a glass of ice cold water on tap takes your fancy, then you should consider the Willow WSBS84FDS.

Benefits of the American style fridge freezers

  • Large capacity, ideal for big families.
  • Sleek and stylish, they fit in seamlessly with modern kitchens.
  • Water dispensers on some models allowing you to have ice cold water whenever you please.
  • Latest food freshness technology.

Retro Style Fridge Freezers

Retro style fridge freezers are both timeless and the perfect balance of both function and style. With their unique style, they help to give your kitchen a contemporary vintage look without compromising on technology.

Benefits of the retro style fridge freezers:

  • Large capacity, ideal for a medium sized family.
  • Great retro design that will be an eye-catching focal point in your kitchen.
  • Modern technology and energy efficiency combined with vintage style.

If you're looking for a fridge freezer that will add a pop of colour and also be a focal point, then you should consider the Willow WR55FF. This model comes in four great colours - black, white, red and cream so you'll be able to find one to suit your kitchen. The 250L capacity offers plenty of space to store enough groceries to feed a family.

Standalone fridges and freezers

If you already have a fridge freezer but are looking for more fridge or freezer space, then a standalone model could be the right choice for you. You could opt for a chest freezer that you can place in your garage or pantry. There’s also undercounter fridges and freezers, which will slot underneath your kitchen counter. Or, if you only need a small capacity, you can choose a table top model which takes up barely any space. You could also consider a chest freezer.

Benefits of standalone fridges and freezers:

  • You can choose either a fridge or a freezer depending on which one you need.
  • The smaller appliances are easy to fit in your kitchen/garage.
  • If you only need a small amount of space, then you can opt for a tabletop model which will fit on any counter top.
