That being said we are going to be discussing well known types of refrigerators so that it will be easier for you to decide on the type of refrigerator you want.
These are French door refrigerators, side-by-side refrigerators, cabinet-depth refrigerators, top freezer refrigerators, bottom freezer refrigerators, compact refrigerators and finally Smart refrigerators. Their prices will also be discussed.
French Door Refrigerators
This the first type of refrigerator that we will be discussing. They are those refrigerators that have two side-by-side mini doors.
Although some might confuse this with the side-by-side refrigerators they are not the same and when we have discussed the side-by-side refrigerators, the differences will be clear.
French door refrigerators are called so because their door takes after the architectural design of French doors used in buildings.
An advantage of the French door refrigerators is that you can open one of the doors to get what you want while the other half of the door remains closed. This means that only a smaller portion of cool air will escape. This gives you better energy efficiency.
You might be wondering where the freezer compartment for a French door refrigerator is located. You will find it on the bottom and there is usually one or two bottom freezer drawers.
The bottom doors can be either the same side-by-side style or you’ll have one door on top of the other. This means that a French door refrigerator has a total of three or four doors. Some also come fitted with a water dispenser.
A French door refrigerator usually has transparent compartments so it is not difficult to find whatever you are looking for.
But some people are not satisfied with the drawer design of the freezer because when the freezer is fully loaded, it will not be so easy to find what you need.
French door refrigerators are more expensive than the top freezer and bottom freezer refrigerators. They are sold within the range of 570,000 NGN and 900,000 NGN.
There are still some of the French door refrigerators that cost over 1,000,000 million NGN, these ones provide you with a symmetrical cabinet-depth experience.
French door refrigerators are very good refrigerators to have especially if you want your kitchen to have a classy and fashionable vibe.
This is yet another wonderful refrigerator for those who want their kitchen to have a fashionable ambience and still have enough room to store frozen foods as well as fresh foods.
With the Side-by-side refrigerators you don’t need to worry about having more space for frozen food and less for fresh food or vice versa as the freezer section and the refrigerator are side by side.
The freezer is on one side and the refrigerator is on the other side. There is room for all the food you wish to store whether fresh or frozen. Some of the Side-by-side refrigerators come with a water and ice dispenser or just one between the two.
The Side-by-side refrigerators are not as expensive as the French Door refrigerators and can be purchased for about 250,000 NGN up to 1,200,000 NGN.
Moving on let us talk about the Top freezer fridge which is also known as the top mount refrigerator. This is a very popular type of refrigerator that most people are used to.
It is the type of refrigerator that has a freezer at the top and the refrigerator compartment below with one or more bottom drawers for fresh food that you don’t plan on using immediately.
Although there has been a lot of technological improvements and other types of refrigerators such as French door refrigerators and side-to-side refrigerators, the top-freezer refrigerators are still very much in style and highly sought after.
Another reason why the top-freezer refrigerator is still in high demand is because it is more compact than the French door refrigerators, side-by-side refrigerators, and cabinet-depth refrigerators. The top-freezer refrigerators save you money as they do not hike up your energy bill.
The Top freezer refrigerators can be purchased within the range of 47,000 NGN to 450,000 NGN. The storage capacity of the refrigerator is a huge determinant to how much you can get the refrigerator for.
A very important factor in life is the concept of choice. If there is a Top freezer refrigerator, there is no reason why there shouldn’t be a bottom freezer refrigerator.
Some people prefer these types of refrigerators because it is better for them. It is equally a very good option for parents who love having a quality time with their children in the kitchen, as it will be easier for them to reach the freezer and fetch whatever you need.
However, bottom freezer refrigerators can pose some challenge for people with some health conditions such as back pain, arthritis, etc. You can get bottom freezer refrigerators within the range of 110,000 NGN to 450,000 NGN.
Let us look take a look at the Compact Refrigerators. They make an excellent choice for those who just want a small yet efficient refrigerator for home, office or personal use. It is often a first option for most bachelors, spinsters, and students.
Compact refrigerators are also popularly known as single-door refrigerators because of obvious reasons. The freezer and refrigerator compartments can be reached through the same door. Although sometimes they can come with two doors, that is not usually the case.
The Compact refrigerators are very affordable and can be gotten within the range of 27,000 NGN to 150,000 NGN.
Cabinet-depth refrigerators are not as technical as some people would assume. They are just regular refrigerators designed to match and fit in to your kitchen cabinets.
They could be of any design, side-by-side or French door style, only that the come slimmer than normal. It’ll just be the refrigerator door that won’t be in the cabinet so that it can be opened easily.
People go for this type of refrigerator because they want something that will fit with their kitchen cabinets and match the design of the kitchen.
So you can go ahead and design your kitchen the way you want knowing fully well that you can always go for a Cabinet-depth refrigerator and your design or kitchen theme will remain intact.
They are also fitted with foldable and adjustable shelves so that you can expand and reduce the size of the shelves to meet your needs.
It is no surprise to find that Cabinet-depth refrigerators are more expensive than other refrigerators already mentioned.
Smart refrigerators provide you with so much more than you can get from the other types of refrigerators that we have discussed earlier in this article.
They come with a lot of amazing features that will leave you wowed. Examples of these features are Wi-Fi, speakers, barcode/RFID scanners, LCD touchscreens, etc.
Some will notify you when you are running out of some food such as milk as well as letting you know when they are about to expire, notify you when you didn’t close the door properly or when there is a power outage to your fridge.
Some models of smart refrigerators let you know if your refrigerator develops some issues and will troubleshoot it to the manufacturers so you know the issue on time, exactly what the issue is and get it resolved as soon as possible.
Some can even be your virtual assistant and will notify you when food is ready or when your favorite TV show is about to come up.
Just one glance to your refrigerator display and you are aware of a lot of things around you. Some can literally double as your smartphone as you can watch TV, stream movies and songs, play games, post on your social media accounts etc. They have spill-proof shelves, LED lighting, energy notifications and so much more.
Yes, smart refrigerators are very amazing but they are very expensive and with their features and functionalities, it is very expected.
Now you are aware of the types of refrigerators and their prices, you will find it easier to decide on the type of refrigerator that is best for you and won’t be too much for your pocket.
