Finnish Housing Fair 2009

Finnish Housing Fair 2009 in Valkeakoski
July 10. - August 09.
.
Thursday's program was to visit the annual Housing Fair
.
Trends in housing:
Big terraces,
greenhouses,
large, open entrance halls
instead of cupboards, more walk-in closets
.
Not so big differences between the houses,
most of them almost the same.
Perhaps house number 21
"Lupaus" (="promise")
was the best inside, outside

House 21 Lupaus
.
House number 20 Villa Aurora
looked different and interesting outside,
but the inside solutions were awfull
Villa Aurora
. Covered terrace,
very typical this year
. Many of the houses had a fire place
Here a clean-shaped, simple one
- nice built-in storage for the logs
.
Almost all the kitchens were high-glossed white or black

Many of the kitchens had a narrow window
above the worktop
- liked that solution a lot!
.
Bathrooms were all very similar,
mostly white ones,
rainshowers was a big hit

These 2 toilets had a wallpaper made of a photo/picture
.
A big window made the bathroom look like a room
.
White on white
.
Beautiful black and white sauna/steam room
.
White, of course,
with focus on the metal silver frames and chair
- the frosty looking glass on the right side
looked very interesting

Worth to visit,
even though not so much totally new things and ideas.
.
From the parking place there was a shuttle bus to the fair ground.
On the way back to the parking lot,
the bus driver was telling interesting stories of Valkeakoski town:
history, sights, football...
- excellent idea!
