Refrigerators have undergone a massive change in the past few years. New styles and features can even turn your kitchen into an entertainment center, so how are you supposed to find what’s right for you? Asking the right questions, and figuring out your specific needs can go a long way in making a decision.
There are many styles out there, but two of the most common are the ‘top-freezer’ style, and the ‘side-by-side’ style. Choosing a format is the first step in narrowing down the field.
This style is probably what most people think of when they think of a generic refrigerator. It has been around for a very long time, and while technology and style have moved forward since then, it is still a common style found in many apartments and homes. They are still available in a wide variety of choices. Top freezer’s offer the best bang for the buck, if you aren’t in the market for the most technology or features.
The side-by-side design does just as the name suggests, splits your refrigerator and freezer space down the middle vertically. Depending on the specific model, it may be a 50/50 split on the space, or there may be an extra couple of inches given to the refrigerator side. These models come packed with more technology than a top freezer style, but can be difficult to fit oversized items in, such as a pizza box. An advantage of a side-by-side is that the door require much less room to open, which is great for a narrow kitchen.
These are two of the more common styles of refrigerators on the market, and Buddy’s stocks many different models of each style to suit any space and budget. It is largely a personal choice about which style you prefer, but if you have any questions about the refrigerators we offer, don’t hesitate to call us at 1-866-779-5058 today.
