How To Build Your Very Own Keg Fridge

Everyone has several things that they have in their home that they can’t imagine living without. Some have a huge bed, some have a big pool in the backyard, but how many of you have a Kegerator? If you are wondering what is a Kegerator, then by the end of this article you will probably want one in your home.

A Kegerator is basically a refrigerator that was converted into a beer holding and cooling unit. If you have dreamt of having a small fridge just for yourself so you can serve cold beer at any given time of the day or night, then the little Kegerator is just the thing you need.

However, you must be wondering how exactly should you build your own keg fridge? Well, don’t stress so much is actually not that hard and we will explain in a few simple steps below.

Get a small fridge

Any kind is good and the fridge does not need to be new. Just don’t be in a rush to start building as you will need more components than one refrigerator.

Conversion kit

This step will vary depending on the conversion kit that you bought, but in short, this step should have one serving tower that is made up of one or multiple faucets, a CO2 tank with an additional regulator, this will serve as the main pressure adjustment so the beer can flow effortlessly, gas and beer lines, the disconnects, tailpiece for the shank, and one or two beer kegs of the desired size.

Read the instructions

This is one of the parts where you can’t just skin over. You need to actually read all the fine details of how the cylinders and the CO2 tanks work. If you skip this you will have problems with the beer and foam later down the line.

Measure twice cut once

This is the only part that if you screw up you will need another fridge. So, make sure to measure two times where you want to make that hole where the beer lines will flow to the outside part of the fridge and cut once.

Get busy drinking

Once everything is connected as per the instructions and the holes have been made and the beer is flowing it’s time to enjoy the hard labors of making a Kegerator. Congratulations you are now officially a beer lover and a Kegerator owner.

Make your entrance special

EntranceFirst thing is first when somebody is coming to visit your home the first thing that they subconsciously see is the entrance to your home. If this part is not inviting the rest of the house will lose in style points. To make your entrance more inviting you just have to add a bit more color to it and a few simple sitting places. For instance, you can paint your door a nice red, or cherry color that will complement the small black light you can install above your doors ceiling. Another great addition can be a small bench where people can sit to put on their shoes.

Plant up your garden

Most of the homes don’t spend enough love in their garden. Some install a pool and just forget that anything else can be a big boost to their esthetic. If you want to improve your garden a bit installs some plants all over the place. You can do a quick addition by buying potted plants, but if you want to take the longer and more beautiful route you can designate a spot where you can plant flowers and other garden plants.

Get a few built-in shelves

Shelves

Where there is room for storage there is room for some built-in shelves. This does not necessarily mean that you should start drilling holes in your walls but you can definitely find places where you can install a few shelves that will complement the wall. Books and potted plants will look amazing on them, but they can also be used to store some blankets and other non-table material.

Get a hanging medicine cabinet for the bathroom


If you are not big on remodeling your whole bathroom, you can just make your life easier by putting a medicine cabinet behind the mirror. In fact, pair them up and store all your needed things inside the medicine cabinet such as deodorant, perfume, and toothbrushes. Freeing up space inside the bathroom will never look more elegant than with a medicine cabinet behind the mirror.

Put dimmers on your inside lights

This is a small improvement but one that will definitely be loved by anyone. Instead of placing 10 small light sources around the room just get a dimmer for your ceiling lights and watch the romantic light compliment your evenings.
