We’re not embarrassed to admit it – we’re starting to get excited about The Royal Wedding.
So when we saw this limited edition The Royal Wedding GE GIU21XGYFKB American style refrigerator we just had to share it with our loyal readers.
This stunning design has been created in response to its Facebook followers’ suggestion that this fridge be adorned with the smiling faces of Prince William and Ms Middleton.
This range of fridge has been designed so that it can be personalized for each customer for a mere a £2,000.
We’re a fan of Kate and Wills – but we’re just not sure we’d want this fridge in our kitchen… would you??
Does the thought of choosing a fridge fill you with dread? What size to buy? Fridge to freezer ratio? Capacity?!
Well here are a few handy tips to consider so that you don’t lose your cool…
The most exciting element when choosing a fridge is the overall style you want to project – there are hundreds of different colours and designs that can be used for inspiration, from uber modern to retro to even having an England flag adorning the fridge!
Editor of Essential Kitchen magazine, Ronnie Whelan says “The fridge is a major element of a kitchen’s design”
And as to where to put your fridge – they can be hidden behind kitchen cupboards which is ideal for a streamlined look that suits open-plan living.
On the other hand, freestanding fridge/freezers use less floor space than built-in units making them perfect for flats. But can, on the other hand, they be less energy efficient and noisier.
Freestanding fridges are ideal for making a statement and can work with most kitchen designs - plus there’s an enormous variety of colourful, retro-styled, black, white or stainless steel designs.
Another key point is to consider is your eating and drinking habits – if you enjoy a cheeky glass of wine every now and again then perhaps a special cooler would be a nice extra. Other special features include open door alarms and ice and chilled water dispensers.
So think outside the box, don’t just go for standard white when you could make your fridge a funky focal point in your kitchen.
If you’re not a Delia in the kitchen and ready meals are the staple of your diet, then the Smart Fridge might just be the gadget for you.
Imagine a world where your fridge is intelligent enough to invent it’s own recipes based on whatever it stocked with – That’s the idea behind the Smart Fridge, designed by Ashely Legg from ASUSDESIGN.
The design features a multi-touch panel mounted to the door where users can enter ingredients as they are placed inside. The fridge can then use the inventory to generate recipes and serving suggestions that the user may not have thought of. The fridge would also include a voice guide to give step-by-step instructions for preparing the meals.
Sounds pretty impressive to us!
