Whirlpool's CoolVox Hi-Fi Fridge

The kitchen should be a place of relaxation. It is a space for cooking and not for clutter. Unfortunately, extra counter space is usually hard to come by in many kitchens. Hoping to help solve this, a new invention will be hitting the appliance market sometime in the not-so-distant future. Made by Whirlpool, the new CoolVox fridge answers the question of counter space vs. music. Available so far in stainless steel and white ice color, this refrigerator places speakers inside the doors.

Especially in kitchens, consumers want to make the most of the space they have, and often times that means choosing between counter space and other electronics. With this fridge, the need for speakers or an iPod dock while cooking is eliminated. Listening to recipe podcasts has never been easier.

With the wireless Bluetooth connection the fridge includes, consumers can sync smartphones with the fridge, as well as stream from a computer or a tablet.

According to Whirlpool, the idea was created to let you “play what you want, when you want – helping you to create the moments that matter most”.

 Although it is still in its concept phase, this innovation could pave the way for other appliances like it, and start a new range of devices with music.

Another item that always seems to take up counter space is a coffee-maker. With the new Black Luk wall-mounted coffee maker, there is even more space available! 

This unique design is mounted on the wall and dispenses coffee through a small opening. It is perfect design for a modern home.
