Come on do I really need to explain this? Lol. This was another no brainer upgrade for us. I'm always cold so this will be on during the winter. From what I am told even though we didn't get the blower, it still kicks out enough heat for the family room and possibly kitchen.
Those of you that have a fireplace and that have already closed, let me know if this is true.
STORAGE, STORAGE, STORAGE. We finally have enough room for what we need and then some. Although our master bedroom isn't as huge as we would have dreamed(think Rome's floorplan which has an INSANE master), it's bigger than what we've ever had and it's all usable. In addition to our closets in the master all of the other bedrooms have nice size closets as well. Plus we have the linen closet in our bathroom and one for the other bedrooms, and I just covered the first floor. Not to mention the coat closet, which is actually between the front door and the garage (in our old place you walked up stairs and walked through the living and dinette areas to get to the coat closet). Plus the attic. We love that it has steps and not just a crawl space type of thing.
We're so over small apartment fridges. Plus Daniel is a restaurant manager. Sometimes he has to go to the store or another location to pick up items. Previously, he would have to think about what room was left in the fridge to see if he could pick up the item and store it overnight in the warmer months. Now, no problem. Oh and left overs. After a big meal, we finally have room to store everything and not beg people to take it home for fear that we will throw it out. Lastly, we don't have to work about going to the grocery store and not having enough room for our groceries. Believe it or not, this has happened before. We're going to enjoy all of the 28 cubic feet of this bad boy.
So that takes care of the size of the fridge, let's talk about the features. Ours has the slim space saver ice on the door. So we have the complete inner cabinet of the fridge that doesn't take up precious space. The ice bucket is also removable. Although the bucket doesn't store a lot of ice, which is fine with us because we're not big ice people, there's a tray in the freezer that offers more storage for ice. The dispenser is taller than normal so it can accommodate most water bottles. It also has a measured fill control. Add to it the expandable shelf and you can place a small pot or water bottle in the dispenser and walk away to do other things if need be.
