Is There a Refrigerator That I Can Fit Under my Desk?
Our Advice on a Small Under Desk Refrigerator
If you are considering a mini desk refrigerator for your desk at work, you’ll quickly find that there are many options available to choose from. With all the sizes, styles, and colors available, how can you make the right choice? You should be looking for a few key things when you start shopping.
Here is a look at some tips to remember that will help you buy the right option for your work needs.
Tip #1 – Look at the Fridge Size
There are many sizes available when you want a mini refrigerator. Some are as small as 1.7 cubic feet, while others are larger and go up to 2.9 cubic feet. There are even some larger options available. Think about how many drinks you want to keep in the fridge and how much food you plan on storing. By considering what you want to put in it and how much space it takes, you can figure out the inside dimensions and choose the appropriate size for what you need it for.
You’ll also want to think about the size (outside dimensions) you have available for the fridge when making your choice. Measure the space that it’s going to go into. Leave some room in the back and on the top for good air flow.
Tip #2 – Consider the Colors
There are many fun colors you can choose from when you are purchasing your mini desk refrigerator. Some of the bright colors you may enjoy include lime green, neon pink, navy blue, and even cherry red.
If you want to keep your fridge inconspicuous, then go with black – even a matte black if you can find one so that the fridge blends into the shadows and isn’t noticeable. People won’t be tempted to see what you have in your desk fridge.
Tip #3 – Look at Energy Requirements
Another important tip is to look at energy requirements when purchasing a mini desk refrigerator. Look at the Energy Star label to make sure you get an energy efficient option that will be a great investment through the years.
And look at where any available outlets are and then measure how much cord you’ll need to plug it into the wall.
Tip #4 – Check the Door
While some of these refrigerators come with compartments on the door, not all do. If you need a bit of extra area, the mini desk refrigerator with side compartments on the door will definitely give you more room and help you keep the fridge well organized.
The great thing about an under desk refrigerator or desk size refrigerator is that you can keep an eye on your food and there will be room for it – no more fighting for room or having your lunch stolen at work. You can keep soda and refreshments in it, too.
If you get one that’s discreet enough, then it might just look like a computer or something that’s supposed to be there and nobody (your co-workers) might not ever notice it.
Make sure you check with your boss or employer before plugging it in but if you explain your case, they shouldn’t have a problem with it.
