Gorenje Combining function and eco-friendliness, this fridge from Gorenje, with an A+ energy rating, would make a cheaper alternative to the Smeg for those who enjoy Fifties style. The only downside is that the freezer compartment is also rather retro, being on the small side. Price: £592.95 Greenandeasy.co.uk
Smeg Most people buy a Smeg for its smart retro style rather than its spec. But the covetable classic has evolved over the years into a highly functional and eco-friendly machine with an A+ energy rating, while still retaining its good looks. Price: £1,358.95 Coopelectrical shop.co.uk
AEG A modern twist on the traditional fridgefreezer, with sleek lines and a stainless steel finish, and boasting a generous 340 litres of storage. Inside, there are no gimmicks or surprises, but this is about as handsome a fridge as you'll find in this price range. Price: £649.99 Currys.co.uk
Hotpoint Stylish, functional and clever, this four-door fridge-freezer offers a happy medium between US styles and traditional small designs. Full of energy-saving settings, it is the ideal family fridge. Price: £599 Johnlewis.com
Maytag With double doors, contourededge detail and a stainless steel look, this is the quintessential American-style fridge for those for whom nothing else will do. It even comes with a dispenser for chilled water and two kinds of ice ? crushed and cubes. Very cool. Price: £1,229.99 Electricshop.com
The Corner Fridge Company You'd be forgiven for mistaking this futuristic freestanding fridge for a Tardis; in a square metre of kitchen space you have the capacity of several standard fridges, nestling neatly between your kitchen units. It does, however, come with a hefty price tag. Price from: £3,400 Cornerfridge.com
Whirlpool A practical but relatively new design, the fridge drawer from Whirlpool definitely has the ?why haven't they thought of this before?? factor. With space-saving compartments and designed to fit easily under worktops, it has the same capacity as a normal fridge. Price: £1,019 Appliancecity.co.uk
Beko Reliable, affordable, easy on the eye and with practical shelving, this fridge ticks all the boxes without being flashy. It also comes with a chilled water dispenser for an instant refreshing drink, and a space for storing wine. Price: £349.97 Tesco.com
Samsung Here's a fridge that manages to accommodate wardrobe-like storage ? a massive total capacity of 565 litres ? in a sleek and modern facade. In chic black and with a digital LED display control panel, it's reasonably priced for such a monster machine. Price: £649.99 Hispek.com
