Appliances In Your College Years

Moving away from home for the first time is certainly rife with a variety of challenges, including being responsible for attending all your college classes. Picking out a place to live can be a struggle if you do not have the luxury of staying in the dorm. Regardless, however, picking out great appliances that will fit in your apartment can seem like a tough task.

The good news?


There are quite a few options when it comes to the kind of appliances you can fit into your new, smaller lifestyle. A popular choice for the vast majority of college students is, of course, the microwave. Not only is it easy to fit in your apartment, even if it’s a bachelor style one, but it also makes cooking extremely convenient.

However, the key to any great student apartment is a quality refrigerator. While many of them are large and could cramp your dorm room, there are a number of smaller options available, from the compact variety to refrigerators specifically made to be apartment-sized.

So what is the best small fridge for students? This depends in large part on the size you have available in your place to put the fridge in, as well as how many people will need to store food and drinks in there. A good rule when choosing the best fridge, is to get one with at least a small freezer section. This can allow you to store a tray of ice for drinks or even one or two frozen meals for when your student life gets too busy to cook anything.

So when you are looking for a great fridge or other appliance to fit in your apartment, consider this: What functions do you need these appliances to perform? Can any of them do more than one thing for you? How much space do you have available? Are there mini versions of appliances other than refrigerators? Evaluate your requirements and you will certainly find the best appliances to fit in your apartment.
