So today we went to the house fair to look at check out some things what could be interesting for us. The fair is huge and there is a lot of information for house building, gardens, interior decoration and much more.
We started at the fair at the area with kitchen equipment and asked some offers for the kitchen equipment which we need (fridge, freezer, stove, induction cooker, dishwasher, integrated microwave and hood for above the cooker). We started at Hirvox who where standing at the fair with the UPO collection. UPO is a Finnish brand and is quit known here in Finland for their good and basic quality for a reasonable price. We asked for the offer for the best models which they had standing there. The offer was quit good and is within our budget which is reserved for the kitchen equipment. The offer was based on netto prices.
Then we went to Expert. They where standing there with AEG, Samsung and Festivo collection. The AEG collection looked quit good so an offer was asked for the simular kind of equipment which we where asking the offer from at the Hirvox stand.
Of course AEG is AEG but the price difference of about 2000 Euros between the two offers made it for us quit clear.
After little consideration we went back to Hirvox stand and ordered a nice UPO kitchen equipment package.
Our next goal was to look at some fire places. Because this will be our primary heating source it has to be a very good one which can handle the heating in strong Finnish winters for a big part of the house. We went to the stands of Tulikivi and Nunnauuni and asked for some models the offer. Tulikivi will send us the offer within the next few days and from Nunnauuni we received immediately the offer. We are interested in the following models. Left the Tulikivi KTU1337/91 and right the Nunnauuni Vanessa 6.
After this we went to the garden stands and checked some things like stones for garden. After being for many hours at the house fair we felt it was enough. A busy day but again one step closer.
