If space is a problem for you then what it is recommended that you get is a compact refrigerator for your kitchen or even office, if the place matches with a fridge. One type of compact refrigerators come in cubical form, so you can imagine how little space they actually take up. They can come in a wide range of colors. Some of them can provide a very good design on the inside offering space you would not think that it can be found inside judging by the size on the outside.
Some come with separate chilling compartments that are meant for storing things cold on a short-term basis. Some are more silent than others as manufacturers have used a system in which vibrations have been taken out of the picture. Some of them are more environment-friendly consuming less energy than others. And this kind of compact refrigerator may also come with door hinges that are reversible depending on whether you would like to open your door to the left or to the right.
Another type of compact refrigerator is a little bigger in size than the cubic ones, but then it is not as big as a flat fridge either. Its size is somewhere in between, that is why they call it midsize compact refrigerator. Although the size allows it, not all these fridges come with a freezer, yet most of them have door storage meant for storing bottles with drinks or yoghurt containers. Some of them may have slide glass or plastic shelves especially designed to be easily cleaned. Others may come with a locking system too.
The compact refrigerator may turn out indeed useful if you want to have one in your dorm during your university years. It will surely hold your snacks and not eat up a lot of space; it will do you the favor of keeping your drinks cold and most of them have shelves that may slide out completely allowing you to accommodate bottles or containers of even bigger sizes than usual. Most of these offers are good value for money taking into account how useful they are and how convenient they are for students or for those living in very small flats. All of them come with warranty of at least one year. The only thing that needs to be done is to read the maintenance and installation instructions for your compact refrigerator.
