Need recs for a small wine fridge for NYC apartment
November 14, 2012
Hi - I'm renovating my NYC apartment which has a small kitchen. I'm going with the Liebherr 24" fridge and Miele for everything else (still debating between the 18" or 24" dishwater).

The only appliance i need to finalize is a small wine fridge. I want to do built in. Given that my kitchen is small and I live solo, I don't need anything too big. I considered the Liebherr and Miele wine fridges that are 24" wide, but I think they are too big for the space - I don't need something that holds 40 bottles of wine. I've also considered the Liebherr 17" wine cabinet but haven't been able to find any reveiws on this. The next item I found is the U-Line 15". My worry is will my kitchen look too matchy if I have three different appliance brands? I'm tempted to go with the Liebherr just to be consistent. Any thoughts or ideas of other brands to consider would be appreciated.

Don't worry about being matchy. Choose a wine fridge that works in the space, has the capacity you need, and allows easy access to the wine. In the case of appliances, I've found that utility trumps match or not match. Made a big mistake once with a wine fridge that held 40 bottles - if you didn't ever want to access them!! Good luck.
