And of those who are aiming high, 25 per cent said it was down to watching home improvement TV shows such as Grand Designs or DIY SOS. Unsurprisingly home influencers – such as Stacey Solomon and Mrs Hinch – also played a big part in this who are amongst the 10 celebs responsible for our fridge envy.

Wanting to impress friends, neighbours and family (22 per cent); feeling ashamed with the current state of their fridge (20 per cent); and seeing celebrities on social media (19 per cent) rounded off the list of the top five reasons people strive to have an ‘Instagrammable’ fridge in their home.

It is clear that fridges have long been a kitchen essential and a staple appliance for people in their homes. But now we are seeing this go one step further as people are striving to have an Instagrammable fridge and the research highlights the ways people are getting this look with this appliance, be that by labelling food or having matching storage jars.
