Tis the season for porches filled with spider webs, skeleton-lined driveways and jack-o-lanterns on the steps. As a child trick-or-treating on Halloween, nothing is more exciting than venturing up to an extravagantly decorated house. Well… maybe one thing: visiting a home featuring a spooky walk-through complete with “pop up” ghosts, goblins and ghouls.
Americans rank Halloween as their third favorite holiday, just behind Christmas and Thanksgiving. In 2016, Halloween retail spending hit a record high of $8.4 billion. Consumers spent money on costumes for all members of the family – kids, parents (and even pets) – along with candy and, of course, decorations.
As an adult, Halloween provides the perfect excuse to let loose and express ourselves differently than we do every other day of the year. There’s just something about dressing up and decorating the house, however crazily, spookily or just plain old differently, that provides an intriguing release from reality… seemingly what makes the holiday a favorite among Americans both young and old.
For those seeking to elevate their Halloween decor to the next level, the Northstar line from Elmira Stove Works offers a full range of customizable vintage refrigerators. Just in time for Halloween, the vintage-inspired Skulls and Flames design features an orange, airbrushed skull on a sleek black fridge that is sure to give anyone “the chills.”
Popular among motorcycle owners and vintage car aficionados alike, this visually striking fridge can even be tailored to be a draft beer dispenser, making it the ultimate man cave masterpiece.
Skulls not your thing? Fear not! Northstar fridges come in a variety of colors and can be airbrushed with a design of your choosing. These functional pieces of art are ideal for adding a pop of color to the kitchen or evoking masculine charm in a garage or man cave. If you happen to prefer the look of a solid color fridge, Elmira offers orange and black versions of its Northstar appliances – perfect for Halloween, and all year round.
Retro, colored appliances are not frequently found in kitchens nowadays, making these pieces all the more extravagant and gushworthy. With Elmira Stove Works, it’s easy to get the desired retro or antique look, without sacrificing the convenience of modern, high-tech appliances.
So, whether you’re seeking to up your Halloween decor and host a top-notch haunted house, or add a flare of self-expression to an otherwise generic kitchen or man cave, Elmira Stove Works has got you covered.
