One of the most important items in any kitchen is the fridge. However, many people may also want to purchase one for other areas of the house, such as a garage, a spare room or a home office. In this case, a slim line fridge is often the ideal choice, as it will be able to slot in almost anywhere, and will certainly be more versatile in size terms than many other fridges.
It's obviously important to settle on the right budget before purchasing the fridge. Fortunately, slim line models are usually not quite as expensive as their bigger cousins. What's more, anyone prepared to take the second hand approach to things will often be able to get as much as 50% off the RRP. As long as the item is in perfect working order, this is often well worth it: even if the fridge is a little dirty, it can usually be cleaned right up again.
As is the case with buying all sorts of different household items, it's important to measure up before spending the money. Normally, the manufacturers will have the relevant size information. If the item is second hand, simply ask the seller to check the specific model so that the necessary research can be carried out in terms of whether the fridge will fit in the space thatâs planned for it.
It's also worth checking whether or not any second hand fridges are still under guarantee - an item that's ten years old under no guarantee isn't going to offer the value of one that's six months old and is!
