Looking for kitchen appliances like a toaster, coffee maker, or microwave can be difficult, but searching for a new fridge is a whole other beast! That's because this is something you use every single day and you rely on it more than anything else in your home. It is supposed to keep your food fresh and, in turn, keep your family happy and safe. That's why it's important to study up before making a decision on which refrigerator to buy.

First off, think about what you want most in a fridge. Do you cook with a lot of ingredients and require a lot of storage space? Do you need uniquely-sized shelving for entertaining purposes? Or perhaps you're looking to cut your power bill in half and need an appliance that doesn't require a lot of energy. Lucky for you, there are more than a handful of fridges on the market that meet at least one of these requirements — and many even meet them all!

No matter what your needs are, there are certain features that everyone can benefit from — like easy-to-clean, adjustable shelving, for example. For this, you'll want to pay attention to shelving that has a lip on the end, catching accidental spills. And being able to move shelves around makes them easy to clean as well as able to accommodate the many things you want to store in there.

Another feature you'll definitely want to look out for is aesthetics. Today, many refrigerators are designed to sit perfectly flush with your countertops, creating a customized "built-in" look, which is pretty popular these days. You'll also want to think about the fridge's finish. Stainless steel has proved very popular in recent years thanks to the fact that it's resistant to fingerprints and goes well with most kitchen designs.

You'll also want to ensure your fridge is energy efficient — unless of course, you don't mind high energy bills. Many refrigerators currently on the market boast great energy-saving benefits including LED lighting. This type of lighting is incredibly bright, helping you to see everything in your fridge. It also emits less heat, keeping everything in your fridge nice and cool.

Deciding if you want on-demand water and ice is another deciding factor when picking out a new fridge. If you love having cold, filtered water on-demand, picking a refrigerator with a water dispenser and filtration system is a great option. Many of these fridges also boast on-demand ice, crushed or cubed, which is about as convenient as it gets. You'll also want to think about what kind of vessels you'll be using to collect this water of yours. If you like to fill up large pitchers, be sure to find a dispenser that can accommodate this size.

If you're still feeling a little overwhelmed by all the choices of refrigerators out there, it's okay. Just be sure to narrow things down to what you need most in your day-to-day refrigerator needs and pick from those. But picking a fridge is an expensive investment, so be sure to give it some thought before forking over the cash.
