Description

The refrigerator, colloquially known as fridge, is a common household appliance that
allows the modern family to keep food fresh for longer than before and is found in almost
every home these days. With changing times, it has become a necessity today. Without
it, day-to-day life can come to a stand still. But a fridge is not just a fridge any more. It is
much more. Thus, this research aims to look at the surroundings of a refrigerator instead
of the inside to understand the role of refrigerators in everyday life

Observations - Refrigerator tells the story of a household. - Magnets are properly aligned near the top, to keep them out of children’s reach. - Decorative pieces are again lined up near the top, i.e., at eye level. “Don’t panic - I’m just here for the stuff on your refrigerator”

- Refrigerators are an effective means of communication. - Magnets on the refrigerator have decorative, emotional or aspirational values.

Further Improvements Larger sample size More diversity in samples
