RTÉ DIY SOS SONAS Bathroom Renovation

In a recent episode of DIY SOS on RTÉ, an incredible and heartwarming story unfolded. The dedicated team took on a challenging project in Coolaney, Co. Sligo, where they worked tirelessly to transform the family home of Claire Carpenter. Claire, who is on the path to recovery after a stroke, received a remarkable adaptation to support her journeyThroughout the episode, the Sligo volunteers demonstrated an exceptional work ethic and a true sense of community spirit. Despite the obstacles they faced, their dedication and determination shone through, leaving a lasting impact on everyone involved.

SONAS Bathrooms supplied their sanitaryware for the three bathrooms in the renovated home. The main upstairs family bathroom truly delivered on Claire's desire for bling. By replacing the bath with the ASPECT Wetroom Panel and providing a walk-in ALITA Brushed Gold Shower with no steps on the SLATE White Shower Trays, which ensured easier maneuverability for Claire.

The downstairs black & white bathroom features the SIGMA wall-hung basin that ensures easy maneuverability. This bathroom boasts style and functionality which were important to Claire.

Designed to be accessible for Claire's needs, the bathroom downstairs serves as her main bathroom, complete with a strategically placed alarm string in the shower for added safety. The inclusion of a SONAS grab rail in Claire's shower enhances accessibility and convenience in this bathroom.

Barry Sheerin, SONAS' Retail Area sales manager, played a significant role in this project by working closely with renowned interior designer Kerry Hiddleston to select the perfect SONAS products for the job.

We express immense pride in supplying the sanitaryware and extends gratitude to everyone involved in making it a reality. The power of a community coming together to support those in need is truly heartwarming.
