Narrow refrigerator 40 cm wide
When the kitchen space is small, the most comfortable and compact furniture is selected, including household appliances. An important item of a compact kitchen interior is a narrow fridge up to 40 cm wide. It fits comfortably into a small space, while retaining all its functionality. About what kind of "slim" refrigeration unit can be purchased, you should talk separately.
It is worth making a reservation right away: in the appliance stores, the choice of narrow refrigerators is not very large. For the most part, home appliance manufacturers are guided by standard models. But compact technology up to 40 cm wide and with a certain depth is produced much less often and in smaller quantities. Not to say that they have some special price levels. A narrow refrigeration unit, if cheaper than usual, standard in size, then very little.
At the same time, the thinness of refrigeration equipment is compensated by other dimensional indicators. It can be higher than normal or deeper. In any case, the buyer should not worry that a narrower model would not be good enough to store food or that there is not enough room for pots, containers and other dishes with food. Shelves in it are already standard for ten, and sometimes for fifteen centimeters. But this area is enough for everything to fit.
Most models of narrow refrigerators have one chamber and one door. Externally, it is a kind of rack with narrow shelves, the distance between which can be adjusted at its discretion. Such household appliances are produced by many well-known companies in Russia and abroad, for example, Ardo, Samsung, Atlant, Veko, Bosh and others. In any home appliance store, consultants can easily explain the features of the unit, the device, defrosting and self-cleaning procedure, quality assurance conditions.
The absence of a freezer in such models can be compensated by a separate purchase of the freezer.
They are also freely available in trade enterprises. The freezer is chosen according to the size of the area in which it will be installed. Some potential buyers claim that the freezer will be installed in the pantry or kitchen niche. This even has its advantages - in fact, in a dwelling there can be two refrigeration equipment of different capacities at once with cooling and freezing possibilities.
Its main difference from the stationary one is that such a unit will not take up much space. For small kitchens this is the most ideal option. Narrow technique can be placed near the window, placed in the opening between the wall and the dining table. He can take his place even in the hallway leading to the kitchen area. Standard sizes of conventional refrigeration equipment such manipulations with the installation to allow definitely can not.
Models of narrow options are very modern, they are developed with the latest technologies.
They have excellent consumer properties. In the compartment, you can adjust the cooling temperature, there are trays, compartments and containers. You can store various foods in them - eggs, fruits, vegetables, canned goods. There are compartments for bottles. That is, the special dimensions of such units do not create large differences from standard household appliances.
"Slender" two-chamber model
In some specialized retail stores for sale you can find two-chamber refrigeration units of "slender type". Mostly they are produced under the brand name Shivaki and Samsung. In models whose width does not exceed forty centimeters, the lower chamber is usually occupied by a freezer. An incredibly convenient and practical thing has a separate door, several convenient compartments and drawers. In each, you can independently store certain products.
Certain temperature and humidity conditions are created for them.. Manufacturers take into account these features. For example, chilled meat is stored in one compartment, and vegetables and fruits in the dry freezing mode in the other. Such variants of refrigeration equipment differ in cost from single-chamber ones and are much more expensive. But they will allow buyers to avoid the cost of purchasing an additional freezer for the kitchen in the house.
