Design of the day – Personalise your own fridge freezer!

 

You can now create your own funky fridge design to set your kitchen apart from the rest.  You can have any design you fancy printed onto panels which cover the front of the fridge –  you could go crazy with family photos, your favourite celebrity or even your own print! I’d have a certain Mr David Beckham on mine. Available from GE Appliances, the  535 ltr American side-by-side fridge freezer is A+ rated and has a combined water and ice dispenser. To grab yourself a personalised fridge freezer go to www.geappliances.com , they cost £1850 with the panels an additional £200.
