Refrigerators are ubiquitous these days. Leftover meals are as delicious, if not more, due to refrigerators. They have evolved over time to give us the best cooling experience at reasonable prices. Some of the top brands offer the best refrigerators under 20000 rupees. When making a first-time purchase for your refrigerator, there are a lot of things to keep in mind, such as its capacity, type, and most importantly size. With the numerous models and brands available in the market today, this can be a daunting task. It is difficult to pick the right refrigerator that will fit perfectly in your home space. To make it easier, we have listed the two most important things you need to keep in mind while purchasing the ideal refrigerator for your home.
There are four types of refrigerators: bottom freezer, top freezer, French door and side-by-side. Depending on the size of the kitchen, you must measure the depth, i.e., make sure the refrigerator doors can open and close easily without getting dinged, and the width of the refrigerator. You must make sure to add a little breathing room to ensure that you don’t make the kitchen space look cramped.
Depending on the number of people in the house, you can choose the capacity of the refrigerator. Picking a single door refrigerator for a family of 3 or 4 can lead to inefficient cooling, and the food may turn stale quicker. Taking a very big one may take up unnecessary space. Thus, the capacity of a refrigerator must always be kept in mind. Here is an easy method to remember what capacity refrigerator you should buy.
- Couples/Bachelors: 50-200 liters
- Family of 3 or 4: 250-300 liters
- Family of 4-5: 300-350 liters
- Family of 6 or more: 400-500 liters
You can pick the best model depending on your needs and requirements. There are many top brands offering cost-effective and long-lasting refrigerators like Haier, LG, Samsung, and Whirlpool. Out of them, Haier fridge reviews have been amongst the best. Their products are consistently rated top-notch on Snapdeal and other platforms.
The best model is the Haier 195 Litre Top Freezer Refrigerator (HRD-1954BS-R), a single door fridge available for under Rs. 20,000. The other top refrigerator brand is Samsung. Its best single door model is the Samsung 192 Litre Top Freezer Refrigerator (RR20R182XU8). Priced at Rs. 15,990 this refrigerator is perfect for a couple or bachelors living together. It does not take up much room in the kitchen, and can efficiently cool food stored for two or three people. Its width is approximately 54cms with a depth of 64cms. So if you have a small kitchen, this fridge would be perfect for your needs and requirements.
Households with three or four members would require a double door refrigerator. The Whirlpool 245 Litre Double Door Refrigerator (NEO FR258 CLS PLUS 2S), priced at Rs. 17,740 makes it one of the best refrigerators under 20,000 INR. Any capacity higher than this would require substantial kitchen space to accommodate the fridge. Having a refrigerator that takes up most of the space in your kitchen while opening and closing can be tedious, and most important of all, create kitchen mobility problems. It is thus imperative to find a refrigerator that fits your home space.
