Bathroom design award success sinks in for Ava



Ratoath women, Ava Mulready was highly commended at the SONAS Bathrooms and TU-D (Technological University Dublin) 2022 SONAS Bathroom Design of the Year.

In a competition held in association with the Interiors Association of Ireland, students of the Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interior Design, led by one of Ireland’s best known Interior Designers Neville Knott, were tasked to create a luxury bathroom for a contemporary hotel. Third year student, Ava Mulready was highly commended by the judges for her stunning design.

Neville Knott said: “This has been a really exciting competition for our students. As SONAS Bathrooms are the largest supplier of bathroom products in Ireland, there has been great opportunities to explore a variety of themes and styles in bathroom design with products from their extensive range. Working on real life projects is always a great experience for tomorrow’s designers and these students have really risen to the occasion with a wide range of amazing designs. I extend my congratulations to Ava.”

Richard Sloan, MD of SONAS Bathrooms said “There has been an extraordinarily high standard in entries to the competition and we really enjoyed the creativity of these students. SONAS Bathrooms are proud to support the next generation of designers. Sustainability, wellness, and technology all have a role to play in the modern bathroom. It will be wonderful to bring the winning bathroom to life in our showrooms.”

Jackie Carton, President of the Interiors Association of Ireland (IA) said” “It is wonderful to see Irish companies, like SONAS Bathrooms investing in the designers of the future. And what a future that is – I have been blown away by the design talent I witnessed as part of the judging panel. The Interiors Association also appreciates SONAS Bathrooms sponsoring student membership for this entire class.”

Ava, a former pupil of Ratoath College, speaking about her design said: “A monochromatic scheme can be used to create an impactful style and black and gold used in tandem is the most straightforward way to make an eye-catching effect. Stylish, sophisticated and so easy to match with other shades, black is the trending colour. Stone tiles are a great choice for black bathroom floors and walls. Durable and water resistant, black stone can also add plenty of character to the bathroom. Providing a classic look that also makes you feel like you’re entering a secret cave.

Black has been making waves in the design world for some time now, as an aesthetically elite colour.

Black and gold is an all-sufficient colour scheme to rock – these two colours work perfectly together, gold or brass accents the timeless elegance of black.

Perfection is a chic black and gold bathroom with matte black walls, polished gold vanity, gold fixtures and lamps and a Stone slate floor
