Some people like to add a beverage-only refrigerator to their media room or their garage. Such units as the EdgeStar 84-can beverage cooler stand just over 2 feet high with a width and depth of about 18 inches. These are designed to be much less bulky than a standard kitchen refrigerator, while offering the convenience of drinks at hand without having to make the trek to the kitchen.

Adding a second full-size refrigerator, particularly in a garage, often uses up so much electricity that the effects on the power bill are significant. A lot of the full-size refrigerators that people use in these situations are older, and therefore less energy-efficient, so they tend to end up costing more than the enjoyment is worth.
