We are in process of moving house at moment and we need to buy a fridge/freezer for the first time. Both our rented flat and current house have had built in fridge freezers in the kitchen so we've not needed a separate one until now. Current one is a tall one with fridge on top and a 3 door freezer underneath. There isn't enough freezer space so priority is bigger freezer next time.
New house currently belongs to friends of the family and they are leaving a small chest freezer in the utility room. Kitchen is a galley one and at the moment she has a fridge freezer in utility too. There isn't space for a tall fridge freezer in kitchen at moment.
So options are as follows
1. Get a half height under counter fridge for kitchen and use existing freezer. Cheapest option i guess.
2. Get a fridge freezer for utility but have to go out there everytime i want milk or something.
3. Take out end counter unit in kitchen, have a tall fridge freezer in kitchen and chest in utility. This would still leave plenty of workspace in kitchen.
4. H wants to get rid of chest one and have a huge american firdge/freezer thingy in utility. Seems like an unnecessary expense to me plus annoying ot have to into next room for fridge. Hess not at home as much so i guess not as much as an issue for him. Least practical and sensible option i think!!
WWYD? I'm leaning towards option 3 i think.
Need to start having a look around at good deals on them i think. Also need a washing machine as again we've always had built in ones.

Option 4 huge american jobbie. I'd love one and if money allows I'd go with that. You've no idea how old the chest is either so that may well give up the ghost which means you're left with a small fridge and no freezer.
If you're really not keen on the American double fronted all singing all dancing beast of a firdge / freezer go for option 3.
