Your refrigerator is the Holy Grail on a hot summer day. You get home from the scorching heat outside, open your fridge, take out a cold bottle of water and have a sip as the water trickles down your throat soothing your body and mind. Well, summertime is here and while many people need to replace their old refrigerators, some need to get one for their new house.
But choosing the perfect fridge for your home is not always easy. If you go to an electronic appliance store, you see a number of refrigerators lined up with many of them looking similar. But a number of factors need to be kept in mind while choosing the fridge that’s the most suitable for your family. Let’s find out what they are.
First and foremost, you should pick a spot in your house where you would want to keep your fridge. Whether it’s in the kitchen or in some other room, measure the dimensions of the space so you know how much space you have available for the fridge.
This way, when you go looking for a fridge, you can choose from the ones that will fit comfortably into the space you’ve measured. This becomes especially important if you have a modular kitchen.
The size of your family is an important factor to consider while selecting your new refrigerator. This determines the storage space you would require for food and other edible items.
- When it comes to a small home with a single person, a single door fridge with a capacity of around 100-190 liters would suffice, depending on your food storage needs. A good option in this category is the LG 185 L 2 Star Direct Cool Single Door Refrigerator (GL-B181RPDC).
This LG fridge has a Direct Cool feature, which delivers optimum cooling through a natural convection process from cooled surfaces in the insulated compartment that gets cooled. It also has toughened glass shelves; these shelves have high strength, and do not break even if they’re dropped on the ground.
- If you are 2-3 people living in the house, a single door fridge with a capacity of around 200 liters would be a good choice. The LG 215 L 4 Star Direct Cool Single Door Refrigerator (GL-B221ASPX) is a great option in this category.
This LG fridge comes with a Smart Inverter Compressor, which makes it energy-efficient and highly durable. It also produces less noise in the fridge. This fridge comes with toughened glass shelves.
- If your family consists of 4 or more people, you would need a fridge with more than 250 liters of capacity. In this case, you could either go for a single door fridge or a double door one, depending on your space and preference. We suggest buying a double door fridge as they come with frost-free technology, which doesn’t require manual defrosting of ice on a regular basis.
Besides, the extra freezer compartment in these refrigerators offers a lot of convenience at just a little extra cost. In this category, you can consider the Samsung 253L 2-Star Frost-Free Double Door Refrigerator (RT28T30226U/HL). It is a top freezer model with a Digital Inverter Compressor, which uses 40+% less energy and is also quieter.
This Samsung fridge is frost-free, and maintains the temperature consistently throughout the compartments by circulating cooling air, which prevents the build-up of ice in the freezer chamber.
An obvious factor to consider while choosing a fridge for a small home is the cost. Make an estimate of how much you would want to spend on the fridge, and then choose a model that fits that estimate. Nevertheless, with discounts and offers, you can buy a refrigerator with more features within your budget.
A store that offers amazing discounts on a large variety of refrigerators is the Bajaj Finserv EMI Store. Another benefit of shopping from this store is that if you like a model that costs more than your budget, you can also use the Bajaj Finserv EMI Network Card to buy it on no-cost EMIs.

The last factor to consider is the appearance of the refrigerator. Modern refrigerators come in exciting colour schemes, patterns, finishes and designs. Go for a fridge with a nice, sleek appearance that complements the interiors of the room that you want to keep it in. When it comes to the build, a stainless steel finish is quite popular in refrigerators these days.
Lastly, choose a fridge with toughened glass shelves as they are sturdy and durable.
