A vast open plan room where space was plentiful made designing Sonais a pleasure. The question was not “where do we put?” but “how many do we put?”
In close conjunction with the client throughout their build, Declan Sexton & Sons were able to advise on features that the client wished to include, such as a large island with services and windowsill height to allow the worktop to meet seamlessly with the window frame.
As with many designs, symmetry played a part in the design at both the overmantle and display areas, while a fabulous antiqued mirror behind the overmantle reflects this already spacious room.
Integration and symmetry, key to the design of the display wall, allowed for extensive food storage with a large pantry and side-by-side integrated fridge and freezer.
Bespoke Glassware & Drinks Cabinet
While these attractive cabinets facilitate the function, the form is then enhanced by a centre display area to house glassware and a hidden drinks cabinet.
A tremendous island which this kitchen surrounds, pushes the limits of both wood and stone fabrication, measuring 3.1m in length x 1.4m in width.
Everyone, and I mean everyone, who has come into our home has been taken aback with the kitchen. You could not be in better hands with Declan Sexton and Sons. - Claire & Kieran
Bespoke Navy Contrast
Reeded pillars suitably dress the end panels while each side is a mix of function and leisure with the task side facing the range and ample space for an audience on the seating side. A bespoke navy paint, exclusive to Declan Sexton & Sons, provides a stunning contrast to Cosentino’s White Storm worktop.
The panoramic kitchen window, from which a vast worktop stretches, is home to a double Belfast sink. That is flanked by bespoke dovetailed walnut serving trays and compact chopping boards providing both purpose and aesthetic enhancement.
