Smart Kitchen Upgrade with LG
Experiencing new things is something we love to do as the Never Have I Ever Guys (or NHIE Guys for short)! Our latest adventure has been moving to our new house! One of the coolest parts of the move to our new house has been figuring out the amazing brands that would make our new house our home. Cue The Home Depot. One of the first things we needed to take care of was appliances. We had LG appliances in our last house, and we absolutely LOVED them, so it was a no-brainer that we would go the LG route in this house, too! Our goal in this house was to make it more of a smart home.
A Smart App for a Smart Fridge
We partnered with The Home Depot to hook us up with some goodies for the kitchen – first, the fridge. We opted for this sleek LG French Door Smart Refrigerator! We love having smart devices to make some of our everyday tasks a little easier, and this fridge is great for that! Also, we downloaded the LG SmartThinQ app on our phone for added support. If you leave the door open for too long, it will not only beep from the fridge, but you can set a notification to be sent to your phone, too. Energy-efficient, and it keeps food lasting longer.
The fridge also works with Google Home Assistant for a feature called Ice Plus. When we know we will be having a party, we can tell our Google Home Mini to make extra ice! How cool is that?
The Perfect Fit
When we were shopping for fridges, we didn’t realize the difference between counter depth and standard depth refrigerators. With the help of an associate at our local Home Depot, we learned that counter depth fridges are a bit more narrow than standard, making them a great fit for running flush with the counter. With this in mind, we decided counter depth would be best fitting for our space. We are so glad we went that way because it fits nice and snug in its spot.
We love having an open floor plan in our house, which is great for our lifestyle and entertaining. It also means our appliances are always on display. We have noticed, luckily enough, that this fridge runs really quietly, making it great for our space. After some research, we learned that our fridge has an air pump that makes it run more quietly. It’s an innovation that we never thought we needed, but when you are watching TV in the living room (we’ve all been there), it’s nice to not hear the fridge running in the background.
It’s Party Time
And we can’t forget quite possibly our favorite feature of all…we chose this fridge because of its French doors with a pull out drawer, perfect for pizzas and party platters. If you know us well, you know we love a good party, and there’s always extra pizza saved for leftovers or a midnight snack. With all of the hosting we do at home, we can’t wait to prepare some delicious appetizers and have some friends over for game night or a wine and cheese party.
