Buying a Refrigerator

The two biggest factors in any kitchen are the stove and refrigerator. Making sure you pick the perfect one to fit your needs is essential.

Although we are often driven by our emotions during the purchasing process, we also need to think in practical terms.

First, take a good look at your current fridge.

  1. How does it fit your needs?
  2. What would make it better fit your needs?
  3. Which features do you like and cannot go without?
  4. Are there features you wished it had?
  5. Is it large enough to hold the food you and your family need each week?

Starting with how the new refrigerator needs to realistically serve your needs will help you make a better buying decision.

Here are things to consider when buying a refrigerator:


Measure the space you have for the refrigerator. Check not only the height and width but the depth as well.

This measurement often goes overlooked and can make a big difference in how things work out.

If you have a recessed area for the fridge, full-depth is a great option offering more cubic storage space.

Otherwise, counter-depth refrigerators give a more built-in, seamless look — and can still provide plenty of space.


You can find refrigerators with features from the very basic to helping you run your home. Since we’re talking practical, let’s start there.

For example, the Samsung French Door Refrigerator offers a FlexZone drawer and Food ShowCase door.

The FlexZone offers 4 temperature settings and a Smart Divider ensures your groceries stay at the proper temperature. And the Food ShowCase door helps to keep stored items visible and within easy reach.

Not to mention, the CoolTight door helps prevent cool air from escaping, and metal cooling technology maintains a consistent temperature to maintain freshness.


Stainless steel may be all the rage for most, but what looks best in your kitchen? What will fit your design style? Have you thought about Black Stainless Steel?

The Samsung French Door Refrigerator not only comes in Black Stainless Steel and Stainless Steel, but it also comes in Stainless Platinum, Black, and White.

Oh, and if you’re looking to update the stove as well, here is a great option that will perfectly match the French Door Refrigerator in Black Stainless Steel: the Samsung Self-Cleaning Freestanding Gas Convection Range.

You can bake and broil with better results. The fan system distributes heat throughout the oven, so your dishes cook faster and more evenly every time.
