Placing home appliances in a small kitchen is quite a difficult operation, requiring a lot of effort and patience. Owners solve this problem in different ways, but one of the best options is to use compact equipment, including a narrow refrigerator.
Correctly pick up this product can be, focusing only on the specific dimensions of the room and the requirements of the owner of the house.
To minimize the volume occupied by the refrigerator, the developers reduce one of the values of its dimensions. In most cases, this is the width, since it is she who plays the main role in placing the structure in the kitchen. The size of the narrow models differ only by a few centimeters, which is enough to save space.
These non-standard products in most cases are single-chamber, but there are also high models, equipped with several separate cameras.
Such a refrigerator is technically no different from the usual system, as it is equipped with all the necessary functionality. The narrow models are produced by several well-known manufacturers:
Among all these brands should highlight the company's products. Samsung. It produces a wide range of narrow freezer refrigerators. Their width can vary from 45 to 55 cm. The units are equipped with modern functions that allow to preserve the freshness of products for a long time.
We evaluate the practicality
To understand how convenient narrow refrigerators are, you should compare them with stationary models:
- Spaciousness. The volume of the chambers of a standard refrigerator is much larger than its narrow counterpart. This allows you to conveniently arrange all the products without worrying about the place. In turn, small devices are perfect for small families. They can be used as ordinary units, and as mini-bars.
- Functional. Narrow models are manufactured using the same technology as all other modifications. There are both single-chamber and two-chamber systems, equipped with a drip system or "No Frost" defrost.
- Design. Refrigerators are designed by modern designers who create convenient systems. The color of the units varies and here you can find both classic white and nice beige models.
Therefore, it is impossible to say which of the lines of refrigerators is better. Each of these types is used to solve specific problems, on which you need to be guided when choosing them.
