The size of the refrigerator should be based on how large your family is. For example, if it’s just you and your partner, you won’t need a big fridge but if you also have kids then you should consider getting a spacious refrigerator so can fit everything inside. Of course, a single couple that likes to throw parties often might find a large fridge very useful as well.
