Best Refrigerators for Tiny Houses

During the process of building a tiny house there is a lot of research that goes into each part! Living with one of the best refrigerators can make your life so much better. Tiny house refrigerator options can range anywhere from a small “dorm” size fridge that fits underneath a counter, all the way up to a full size fridge.


However, the big thing to consider when choosing one of the best refrigerators is how much food you actively want to be able to store. In addition to that, you’ll want to consider if having a freezer is necessary.

Read about our Tiny House Fridge – Engel

In our case, we opted out of having a dedicated freezer as we chose the Engel 34 Qt. Portable Fridge / Freezer. The Engel can be a fridge or a freezer, but only one at a time. We chose not to have a dedicated freezer because we wanted to focus on having more fresh food. This currently requires us to go to the store more often and eat fresh food instead of relying on highly processed food.

Here are some of the Best Refrigerators for Tiny Houses.
