Which type of refrigerator is right for your family?

Refrigerators may just be the most essential part of any kitchen. They help us to keep our food fresh and healthy while keeping bacteria from growing and allow us to enjoy all kinds of cold treats.

When you’re looking to buy a family fridge, there are three main things to keep in mind: Size, type and other features and considerations.

Choosing the right fridge size

The most important choice to make for a new refrigerator is which size you need. Fridges come in a wide range of sizes, from single door fridges to colossal double door, side by side and 4-door refrigerators.

Consider your household size when making such a choice, since you will need more space to store food for more people. Here are some guidelines for which refrigerator size you may need:

  • 1 - 2 people in household: 200 - 380-liter fridges
  • 3 - 4 people in household: 350 - 530-liter fridges
  • 5 and more people in household: 450-liter and more fridges

Note that it’s a good idea to have some extra space for when you have guests or are preparing for a certain time of year, so when in doubt, lean on the side of more space rather than less.

Choosing the right refrigerator type

Fridges come in different types, such as:

  • Side-by-side refrigerator: Fridge and freezer side by side, which makes the freezer more accessible
  • 4-door and 3-door refrigerator (also known as French door refrigerator): Can be combined in different ways, usually with two fridge doors on top and one or two freezer doors or compartments at the bottom
  • 2-door refrigerators (or double door refrigerators) are sub-categorized into:
    • Top freezer refrigerator: Has a freezer compartment at the top
    • Bottom freezer refrigerator: Has a freezer compartment at the bottom, which means your fridge shelves are higher up and easier to reach

Installation cost and effort don’t vary much between different refrigerator types, but size of course affects the installation. If you buy a fridge that can be connected to a water line, keep the availability of a connection in mind as well.


Energy efficiency


How many watts a refrigerator consumes is a common concern of many buyers. The more energy a fridge can save, the better for our environment.
