Showcase #1: Refrigerators


For our new showcase series, starting Nov 2nd, 2019, we’ll be talking about refrigerators. In the future this showcase series will touch on everything from chairs, couches, washing machines, paintings, candle holders, etc, but today the topic is fridges.

The whole purpose of this showcase series is to talk about the object in ways people usually don’t talk about them. So today we’re going to talk about how a fridge can be a decorative piece in the home.

How Can a Fridge be a Decorative Piece?

To answer this, let’s start with a list of cool ways a fridge can be decorative and then conclude with a broad statement.

  1. If a fridge’s color matches the color of all your other appliances in the kitchen, then it could be considered stylish and add to the beauty of your home.
  2. If a fridge has magnets on it and you post drawings and post cards on it, then this could look very nice in the kitchen.
  3. Older vintage fridges can add a rustic feel to your kitchen, especially if it matches the rest of your kitchen.
  4. Simply deciding where to put a fridge in your home can have decorative consequences. For example, if you put a black mini fridge beside your black couch, and you have a black and white themed living room, this could look very nice.

Now to conclude, let’s ask the question “what could you do to your fridge to make it more decorative in the home?” Could you paint it? Put more magnets on it? Move it to a spot where it looks better? Maybe touch up the scratches on it. Heck, could you seen clean it’s exterior surface to make it more pretty?

After thinking about home refrigerators for a while now I have come to the conclusion that fridges are amazing not only because they provide a great function for the home but also because they are a decorative piece that compliments the environment of your household. Having a red fridge speaks volumes as opposed to having a white one, and it’s always possible to paint them any color you want. Just make sure you use the right kind of paint depending on the material your fridge is made out of.

This has been our first showcase, and we hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to stay tuned and read our update on plans for the future. Thanks for being here!
