Small Space Scribes on June 29, 2020 0 Comments If you live in an RV, small apartment or tiny home, there are certain limitations you will have. The obvious one is space. With limited space, you have to face some restrictions and make certain sacrifices. For example, when it comes to a tight kitchen in a tiny home, you cannot cram in all the equipment and appliances you want. You have to choose only the most essential and those that can perform multiple tasks. The same is true for staying cool in warmer weather. You have to be selective with what you bring into your home. Check out the list of small appliances below that will help you to stay cool this summer and enjoy your tiny home lifestyle to the fullest. Mini Wine Coolers Modernize your wine experience this summer with a compact wine refrigerator. If you are a true wine lover, you need this mini cooler in your kitchen to keep your wine at the recommended temperatures until you are ready to open it. Most mini wine coolers are energy-efficient, quiet, and are designed to accommodate standard 750ml wine bottles. Ice Makers The ice maker is a great addition to any kitchen, especially in summer. If you love cool drinks, but your refrigerator is not equipped with an ice maker, this compact kitchen appliance is what you need. There are two types of ice makes that are good for small kitchens — portable and undercounter. Portable ice makers are very affordable, small, and can be used anywhere that has a power outlet. They are convenient machines that are easy to operate. Undercounter ice makers are more expensive and are designed to fit underneath countertops. Air Conditioner On hot summer days and nights, an air conditioner is a must, especially if you live in a small space. If there are certain design limitations or building restrictions of your residence, which do not allow you to install a traditional air conditioner, the best option will be a portable one. Typically, most portable air conditioners sit on the floor and are also equipped with wheels, so you can easily move them to other rooms if necessary. This makes compact air conditioners a great alternative to window units. Air Circulator An air circulator is actually a fan. Even though the term “air circulator” is more commonly used for industrial fans, it can also refer to a smaller household fan. Air circulators are perfect for smaller spaces and are a more affordable alternative to air conditioners. There are several types of air circulators available. The smallest one is a table fan that is portable, lightweight, and easy to carry. You can place it on your desk, table, or counter. There are also floor, pedestal, and tower air circulators. They all take up a very small space, complement the design of your house and cool the air. Travel Cooler If you spend a lot of time out of your house or travel in your RV, you may need a travel cooler — a convenient and portable fridge. You can use it as an additional small refrigerator in the kitchen or as a cooler on picnics and outdoor trips. Made of durable hard plastic, travel coolers are designed to withstand the hottest weather and the toughest elements of traveling. Single Tap Kegerator The kitchen appliance that all beer lovers should have in their house is a kegerator. It’s similar to a regular refrigerator but with one significant difference — it was made to store and dispense kegs. It is a must-have appliance for those who like throwing parties, entertaining friends and family, or who just want a cold beer on a warm day. Whether you are traveling and living in your RV, or you just have a tiny kitchen in your apartment, these small appliances will help to make your home more convenient and a better-equipped place to live, especially on hot summer days.
