Interior design help - under bench fridge/freezer options
Wife and I are now thinking about how best to renovate the new apartment that we have bought in Hong Kong.
It is, as all apartments are in HK, very small. So we are looking for ways to make it as efficient as possible.
One idea we have had to keep the kitchen open feeling and to maximise bench space, is to do away with the traditional tall fridge. Due to the layout of the place (and a number of alternate layouts we've sketched) the space needed by a tall fridge would create a pretty tall barrier - even without the common tall cupboard space that is often built above the fridge 'alcove'. It would also reduce the available bench space we could have.
My bright idea was to look for under bench fridges. One company makes a drawer style fridge (Fisher and Paykel) and Westinghouse has matching 'bar' fridges and freezers that could make a short pigeon pair. There are plenty of small fridges out there, but many manufacturers don't have matching freezers.
Can anyone think of any other options or ideas for us? Has anyone gone this route before?
