Most important things to consider when buying a new refrigerator


Buying a new refrigerator should not be a fast decision. Most refrigerators have a life span from 10 to 20 years, so in order to avoid inconveniences or extra costs, we have prepared the key things to have in mind when buying it.


Do not go buying a new refrigerator without having a designated place for it and its precise measures. If you are replacing an old refrigerator you can simply measure your old one and buy a refrigerator that is the same size or smaller. When measuring, do not forget your counter depth, which is especially important if you do not want your refrigerator to stand out or be in a way. Hint: Hisense has an excellent range of different models you can choose from. While you are at it do not forget to take opening the doors into consideration and make sure you can open them without anything being in a way. Now before you put that measuring tape away, make sure to precisely measure entry points as well. You will need to get your new refrigerator to your desired place and preferably do it without causing any damage to your home.



There are many different refrigerators on the market, which can be confusing, but it also allows you to choose the one that is the one for you. The first thing to consider is whether you want a built-in or a freestanding one. If you are planning on moving or redoing your kitchen, freestanding is a better option, while on the other hand built-in refrigerators blend in with your kitchen seamlessly and are known for having a longer lifespan. After your needs are being met, you can start thinking about the design that suits you best. Once you start looking at the design aesthetics, keep in mind the style of the room the refrigerator will be placed in and choose accordingly.

Your storage needs

You can find different refrigerators for specific use like wine coolers or mini cosmetics fridges. But what you want and need is important factor to consider when buying a refrigerator for food and drinks as well. While there are many storage hacks available, it is still important to choose the right refrigerator in the first place. A single door refrigerator is a great option for a person living alone or a pair. A double door refrigerator is more practical for households with more members as it provides more storage space. Double door refrigerators come in different variations, like bottom freezer, which is great for households that use the freezer less frequently, and top freezer for those who often use the freezer. A side-by-side refrigerator usually has a lot of capacity and freezer compartments on both sides, while French door refrigerators have two doors for the refrigerator and a freezer drawer on the bottom. The latest trend are smart refrigerators which are connected to your Wi-Fi and provide advanced features.


Your additional wishes

Today refrigerators offer more than just a cold storage for your food. Hisense for instance provides a wide variety of models with water and ice dispensers, that offer a quick refreshment right away. They also include special compartments for meat or produce, intelligent Moisture Control pantry and an innovative My Fresh Choice drawer that enables you to change its temperature according to the needs of your favourite food. Another great function is the Fast Cooling and Freezing which takes a lot less time and makes sure you get your items cold or frozen by the time you need them.

Think about the future

Refrigerators are a long-term investment so keep in mind how your life might change in the future. If you are planning on starting or expanding your family take into consideration that a single-person household needs a refrigerator with around 100 litres capacity, while estimated capacity needed for every additional member is 50 litres.
