Fino has been producing kitchens since 1935 when the first Fino carpenter started his own carpentry business – one that was to grow and expand in an unimaginable way. The company moved on with the times so that it invested heavily in machinery to start mass producing kitchens. Some 10 years ago the company introduced Veneta Cucine to Malta at a time when it had to
stop producing domestic furniture locally due to the lifting of all importation tax, a move which led the market to be flooded with foreign-made furniture. To accommodate such a change, Fino also changed its factory production process from domestic to commercial production.
Veneta Cucine kitchens enjoy the same characteristics Fino carpenters used to produce their own kitchens and so the company could keep confidently offering the same good quality it was renowned for in the past. In fact Veneta Cucine kitchens offer superior quality, fine finishes and flexibility – a perfect combination of stylish factors that keep the Fino name going strong.
The Italian brand of kitchens operates from Biancade, the Treviso area within the Veneto region. Veneta Cucine produces over 100 models with prices for a basic kitchen starting from €4,000. Presently the most popular model within the range is called ‘Start’ and comes in wood or lacquer finishes, with or without handles. Handle-less kitchens are all the rage at the moment whilst the inclusion of the latest state-of-the-art electronic gadgets is something most clients vie for. Whilst all kitchens are modular and fully customizable, Fino’s professionally trained designers make sure all kitchens are designed specifically to fit each client’s individual requirements and requests.
On the other hand the most dashing model on show at the moment at Fino’s furniture showroom in Mriehel is definitely the RIFLEX model. What renders it so staggering? Perhaps it’s the fact that its doors are made of glass and or perhaps the fact that it is completely frameless. The Veneta Cucine designer decided to exhibit this kitchen in the Fino showroom showcasing it with a touch of classical units, the mix of modern dimensions and the timeless allure of classic, rendering it simply amazing.
