Benchmarx Kitchens and Joinery invite West Norfolk youngsters to enter competition with top prize worth £500
A kitchen and joinery chain is calling on West Norfolk youngsters to get creative and design their dream kitchen in a competition with a top prize of family days out worth £500.
Benchmarx Kitchens, which has a branch on Hamlin Way, Hardwick Narrows, Lynn, is looking for a ideas to create the company’s first child-inspired ideal kitchen.
Benchmarx wants to let children's imaginations run riot – the kitchen might have liquid chocolate pouring from the kitchen tap, glitter cabinets in every rainbow shade or an ice-cream dispenser that can create infinite flavours.
As well as being paid in £500 worth of family days out, the winner will also see their kitchen vision brought to life for them and their friends to enjoy.
Shortlisted designer candidates will have the chance to explain the thinking behind their idea before the successful kitchen is chosen by Benchmarx Kitchens’ team of expert judges to be recreated life-size.
As the ‘Kid-chen Designer’ in charge of the project, the successful entrant will then play a key role in selecting the materials from their local Benchmarx Kitchens branch, to help create the finished article.
Matt Aitken, from Benchmarx Kitchens, said: “The kitchen continues to secure its position as the heart of the home, often because it provides an ideal backdrop to come together as a family – be it over a spot of messy baking, creating a culinary masterpiece, doing a spot of homework or even just catching up on the day.
“Good design is the backbone to making this work, and what better way to encourage children into the kitchen than by asking them what they would like to see there.
“It may be as simple as a stool that makes it easier to reach the mixing bowl or bold colours that cannot help but set your day off to a good start. Or, it could be more elaborate in the shape of treat dispensers built into the cupboard fronts or a slide at the end of the kitchen table, the choice is theirs.
Entrants must be aged between four and 11 years old.
To apply visit www.benchmarxkitchens.co.uk/kid-chen to download a form, and email the finished design back before 11.59pm on Sunday, July 21.
Forms can also be collected from one of Benchmarx Kitchens 180 branches across the country.
