The Silver Hairline finish is a silver-grey faux brushed metal finish. Its door features Vinyl Coated Material (VCM) finish that uses a unique gravure printing method with transparent ink that enables multi-layering. It looks attractive and the colour pops because of the gloss.
There is no break in the brushed-metal pattern anywhere on the body. The handle is molded into the body and is painted a dark Gray colour to make it stand out. The visual cues express the purpose of the dark strip over the top edge of the door. At the back, the cooling coils are hidden behind a plastic panel, but the compressor lies exposed for better air circulation around the compressor. On the inside, there is a temperature control knob beside the freezer compartment.
There is one bottle rack and two utility racks one of them has the egg tray. There are two wire shelves inside the body which can be arranged into various combinations. The top of the vegetable tray at the bottom forms the third shelf. The refrigerator door features a lock. The Videocon VC090P stands on four rubber feet which give it stability and grounding.
