If you’re like most families, you probably moved your old refrigerator to another room when you upgraded to a new one. If you live in a smaller home, two freestanding refrigerators can take up a lot of space and energy.

Today, we’re taking a look at how a beautiful stainless steel undercounter refrigerators save space and energy.

How Stainless Steel Undercounter Refrigerators Save Space

It is fun to be different. Individuals who think outside the box are often viewed as being more full of joy and having a tighter embrace on life. Whether it is in the classroom, in the boardroom, or while decorating the home. This outside of the box way of thinking can be reflected everywhere. It’s a way of thinking, creating, and imagining – and it doesn’t have an on/off switch.

So, it is no wonder that this unique way of thought has poured over into kitchen designing. And, guess what? When it comes to designing a kitchen, it is ok to think outside the box, too. In fact, many individuals have been using a new idea that is both functional and design-savvy: undercounter refrigerators.

Now that we know they are a winning choice, how can stainless steel undercounter refrigerators save you space in your kitchen? Let’s talk about it.

You Don’t Need Just One

That’s right – you don’t need just one refrigerator. Think about it. Many people have more than one full-size freestanding refrigerators. Therefore, it is surely okay to have more than one undercounter refrigerators, right?

You can decide to have two in your kitchen. Space them out, based on your cooking flow or the way you use your kitchen. Or, keep them in a straight line. Add a third or a fourth, even. Because that fits directly in the cabinet space and don’t require a huge bulky space like a full-size refrigerator does, having more than one in your kitchen just, well, flows well.

And, the best part is that you can organize them however you choose!

Talk About Better Organization

How many times have you tried to organize your full-size refrigerator? When you do, this is usually what happens: You clean out and organize your refrigerator on a Sunday after doing your weekly grocery shopping. Monday is always a rough start to the week, but you are feeling good and keep your organization. By about Tuesday night, there is a good chance there is a little clutter and de-organizing going on. And, but Wednesday night, forget about it. All hopes of maintaining the neatly organized fridge for weeks to come has officially flown out the window.

Face it- a full-size refrigerator is big and bulky and it can swallow up food items in its deep, dark corners that you won’t notice until a stench starts filling the air.

But, now, you have an idea to use undercounter refrigerators – and you won’t ever have to worry about that again.

By having more than one undercounter refrigerators, you can organize yourself accordingly. For example, you can have one for drinks, one for produce, and another for meats. Or, perhaps you want one for snacks. You get the idea. While it may take you time to remember what is behind door 1, 2, and 3 – you will eventually remember and it will become second nature.

And, the best part, is that you won’t have to worry about maintaining the organization ever again.

Undercounter Refrigerators Increase Available Space

Initially, you may think that having smaller, undercounter refrigerators would only benefit smaller kitchens. However, this is not true. Believe it or not, by choosing to give up the large, freestanding refrigerator, you are creating a more open space – and this is welcome in kitchens of all sizes, big and small.

Consider how removing the full-size refrigerator can free up space. First, the space itself would be freed up. But, what about those doors? They require a space in your kitchen that allows you to open and close them freely, without disrupting the flow of the area. This always requires so much room. Imagine if you didn’t have to worry about it? Your kitchen would be more spacious and be more open.

Gives Your Kitchen a Flowing, Streamlined Appearance

Nobody lines hard lines. Nobody likes big things that stand out and disrupt the contented flow of a space. Nobody likes bulk. The common theme these days is maintaining a minimal approach to kitchens, whether that is a streamlined appearance or small, less noticeable appliances, it is what is trending.

Why waste space on something so big when you can get the same thing from something smaller? Besides, there is a good chance that it requires less energy, too. Which is better for the environment – and better for your bank account.

By placing these small refrigerators under your countertops, you are allowing yourself to have open space flowing throughout your kitchen without anything to get in the way. This allows for a very streamlined cooking experience.
