The Best Fridges to buy guide for 2021

It’s become even more common nowadays for many households to have their fridge freezer and then a spare in the garage or utility room or even another under counter sitting in the kitchen. As Brits we can’t get enough of keeping our grocery shopping cool and fresh for as long as possible.

Modern fridges now come with a wide range of additional features including temperature adjustment, easy maintenance of frost as well as easily adjustable shelving and fancy lights inside too. Although that’s all well and good and very fancy you really need to consider the essentials and what exactly you’re buying the fridge for.

Think about size and where you’re going to put it, fridges nowadays come in a range of sizes from tall fridges to under counter fridges, wine fridges and even fridges with a tiny freezer on top. You also have to consider your kitchen or garage size, your budget and how much you’d ideally like to spend on a new refrigerator as well as the capacity and how much you’d ideally like to store inside the unit itself.

There are literally hundreds of fridges out there nowadays and choosing the right one for you isn’t always a straightforward task which is why we’ve gone out and researched and reviewed the very best fridges in 2021 with all of their features, pricing and best place to buy! So sit back, relax, read the article and enjoy us taking some stress of your hands.

We’d recommend measuring the space before purchasing though!. Tall refrigerators have a good amount of space with shelving and inside door space that you’d find in a standard fridge freezer so if it’s space you’re looking for them a tall fridge is what you need.

Are integrated Fridges worth it?

Clearly the main benefit of an integrated fridge is you save space, typically a freestanding refrigerator takes up  As they only take up a lot of room in the kitchen so saving space in the home is always a win. This is an even bigger when you’re home or kitchen is small. 

Integrated fridges work in the same way as a normal refrigerator and the only difference is it’s hidden behind a cupboard, so before diving in and purchasing one just think about if you actually need one as they tend to be a bit more expensive.

How long does a fridge last?

Fridges tend to last anywhere between 10-18 years with 14 years being the average, however smaller compact refrigerators tend to have a shorter life of around 5-10 years with 8 years being the average. Usually an appliance’s lifespan  depends on how it’s maintained as well as what brand you choose.
