When it comes to design and quality not all kitchens are created equal - producing a room that fits both the individual person and the particular shape of room takes talent, skill and experience.
There’s also a bewildering array of materials and brands to negotiate when it comes to units and appliances, meaning that expert advice is a must.
For the lucky reader who wins our fantastic kitchen competition all this will come as standard - as the Herald have teamed up with design gurus Homeworld who promise to create a dream £10,000 kitchen to the winners’ exact specifications.
Homeworld, who have showrooms in Kirkintilloch and Falkirk, only stock the best quality kitchen furniture and appliances.
Indeed, they’re so confident of all their selected products that everything - from the taps to the cupboard doors - comes with a 10 year guarantee and a pledge that no other company will beat them on price when it comes to the same quality.
For your chance to win, make sure you get your copy of this week’s Milngavie and Bearsden Herald, which is out on Thursday.
Five finalists will be chosen and invited to a special prize draw in the Homeworld showroom.
