If you already have a particular place you’d like to fit the fridge into, measure it well. Take into consideration the door opening and any space required around the fridge.
Wine fridges can come as under-counter (most commonly), freestanding or tall, and as well they can be double-doored, single doored (able to hold around 5 bottles per row) or slimline (one single bottle per row) and able to sit in those small sections every kitchen needs to fill.
Wine fridges will usually be around the £100 to £300 mark. This all depends on storage capacity, extras (such as defrosting ability, lighting, UV protection etc) and brand.
Some can be found for under £100 which are still great – we have a budget pick on our page – but these will often lack any particularly standout features (although some have surprisingly great capacity).
Wine fridges can reach up to £1,000 and beyond. These are for anyone who would like a proper wine cellar of feels a bit like Frasier Crane when talking about drinks, but who needs to work with the space they have got.
Wine fridges need to be on at all times and therefore, you’re not going to want to buy one which costs over the earth to run annually.
The good news is that like with most modern appliances, they’re usually rated A or above so shouldn’t cost any more than £30 per year – although sizes and temperatures can affect this.
