This was the perfect size freezer for laundry room ,however it does take up a lot of space.I put up a lot of vegetable's in the summer therefore I need my freezer to be organize because you can't get to the bottom of the freezer to find your foods. This is one thing that I do not like about a chest freezer . The freezer works great always has but you can't keep your foods organize and easily get to everything . So having said that ,I would recommend getting the up right freezer . If I had it to do all over again I would get the upright ..
