So, it’s time to buy a new refrigerator. Maybe you just want a new one or maybe yours just konked out. Either way, here are 5 things you need to think about before you leap to the first thing that fits your budget.
One — Figure out what style you want. Top-mount freezer. The most basic option with freezer on the top and fresh food section on the bottom. Bottom-mount freezer. Now the fresh food is at eye level — so you can spot those leftovers faster.Side-by-side. Just like the name says — gives you more freezer space so you can store everything from pizzas to peas to popsicles! The shelves won’t be as wide as a top or bottom-mount option so you might want to think about adjustable shelves.
Two — think about capacity. Not only how much you want… but what can fit your space. It’s a great idea to measure your space before your start shopping, including your front door.
Three — now for the fun part — the features. Adjustable, configurable shelves Ice maker with removable ice bucket. Temperature controlled drawers. A root beer tap? Well, maybe not the root beer tap…
Four — all about brand. If you like one over another, go with your gut. If you want to know more, just ask an associate. Five — delivery! Lowe’s offers free, next-day delivery and haul away so you’ll be ready for dinner tomorrow night, and your dinner party next month.
So what are you waiting for? The sooner you start planning, the sooner you get the perfect fridge!
