Your kitchen refrigerator can be both functional and beautiful. Refrigerators by Brama are available in a wide range of finishes and styles. Whether you need a double-door refrigerator that can hold enough food for a large family or a smaller refrigerator to complement a small space, Brama has options that will work for you. Here is what to look for when shopping for a refrigerator.
How to Choose the Right Fridge for Your Kitchen
Before purchasing your new kitchen refrigerator, you should gather some key details to ensure you are making a wise investment. First, determine your budget and be sure to allocate part of the money to shipping and installation. Next, measure the space where you would like to install the refrigerator, measuring multiple times for accuracy. You will need to know the counter depth, width, and height. You should also find out the door swing to make sure you can open the doors of your refrigerator fully without any obstruction. Some refrigerators are designed for freestanding use only, so they should not be recessed into existing cabinetry. Built-in refrigerators can be recessed into existing cabinetry but still require a certain amount of clearance to ensure they exhaust properly. Lastly, determine the electrical requirements of your new fridge. As with any major appliance, your refrigerator will need a dedicated electrical outlet.
Different Refrigerator Styles
Shopping for a new refrigerator can be intimidating as there are so many different styles to choose from. The good news is, there is something for everyone. Here is a breakdown of the different styles of refrigerators available.
● French Door: French door refrigerators have two doors. The refrigerator is positioned at chest height with the freezer at the bottom. Fridges with a french door have versatile storage options. Not only are the drawers deeper and the shelves wider, but the shelves are split down the middle allowing for many different configurations. More cool air stays inside the refrigerator because it is possible to keep one door closed while the other is opened. Lastly, refrigerators with french doors are stylish and add beauty to any kitchen.
● Side-by-Side: The side-by-side fridge has two doors and two separate compartments. The refrigerator is typically on the right side, while the freezer is on the left. The side-by-side refrigerator is great for those who like to organize from top to bottom. Some advantages of the side-by-side fridge include more freezer space, less space needed to accommodate door swing, and you do not need to bend down to access the refrigerator as you do with french door models.
● Single Door: Fridges with a single door are perfect for small spaces. Some advantages of single-door refrigerators are greater energy efficiency, compact size, and budget-friendly pricing. The freezer on the single-door units is typically inside the main refrigerator compartment.
● Pantry Refrigerator: The pantry refrigerator is designed for use in the pantry or garage but is attractive enough to be used inside the kitchen. Pantry refrigerators can withstand higher ambient temperatures and greater temperature swings than a standard refrigerator. A pantry refrigerator is perfect for entertaining when the room inside the main refrigerator is not enough.

Single-door retro refrigerators are available in bold colors, letting you make a fun statement in your home.
