You don't want to leave the basement when the TV is screening that important game. But that won't be necessary when you buy a mini fridge for the family room. A mini fridge or bar fridge provides enough space for a few cans or bottles. There are even some mini fridges that come with a freezer, allowing you to keep ice at the ready too.
Consider a bar fridge with a glass door that reveals what's on tap without having to open it. A lockable one is a good choice if there are kids in the house. The convenience of a compact fridge makes them well worth buying. If you want lots of extra storage space, go with the largest mini fridge available. Be sure to pick a mini fridge with shelving that will suit your storage needs.
