College time is closing in. Are you one of the new college students thinking about how to organize your new dorm room? Switzerland back in my student times had not college system like we have it here. There were though a handful shared apartments for the out-of-town students. I like how college is organized here in the U.S.
But living in a dorm requires some organization ahead of time. You will need to decide what you want to bring with you into the tight space of a dorm room. The thought about a well-sized low-footprint refrigerator will inevitably arise too. I found a good compact all refrigerator for you.
At first glance you wouldn’t think that you can get a tiny refrigerator of about 2.6 cubic feet for your tiny house, small RV, Camper or houseboat and be happy with it. It seems to be too small to hold your necessary food and drinks. To be honest, it isn’t.
Well, let me tell you that a compact refrigerator of 2.6 cubic feet works perfectly fine for your tiny place. It changes the way you look at getting and keeping food, no doubt about that. And there are things you can do with your compact mini refrigerator you wouldn’t be able to do with a bigger size refrigerator. Let’s take a look at compact mini refrigerators and their advantages.
Small kitchens often don’t have an inbuilt microwave. At least this was my experience back in Switzerland. Also partially solar powered houses don’t come with microwaves.
Countertop microwave models get more and more popular. You just plug it in and start cooking, no complicated installation is required. They have their controls on the door in order to create more capacity in a smaller footprint. Having a countertop Microwave has so many advantages. If you choose a small-sized microwave it doesn’t use a lot of space and you can move it around as you wish.
There are refrigerators available in almost every size to suit nearly every need. Below is a list of the measurements of the interior space and the exterior size of the most popular classes:
- Large refrigerators: 26 cubic feet, 70” tall, 36” wide and 34” deep
- Full-size refrigerators: 20 cubic feet, 60-69” tall, 30” wide and 27-30” deep
- Apartment-size refrigerators: 10-15 cubic feet, 50-75” high, 20-23” wide and 20-23” deep
- Mid-sized refrigerators: 6-10 cubic feet, 30-60” high, 18-20” wide and 20” deep
- Compact mini refrigerators: 2-3 cubic feet, 20-25” high, 20” wide and 20” deep
The perfect refrigerator for a tiny kitchen or small household is either the compact mini refrigerator or the mid-sized refrigerator.
Dishwashers were once considered to be luxury kitchen appliances. Now they are must-have, time-saving appliances – even if you live in a small apartment or tiny house.
Here’s a list of the Top 3 Compact Portable Dishwashers. Basically, there are two classes of compact dishwashers, countertop dishwashers and portable ones. This list will give you some tips and information about portable dishwashers. Whereas the advantage of countertop dishwashers is that they fit on every countertop, the big advantage of portable dishwashers is that you can roll them around wherever you want, freeing your countertop for other kitchen work.
