There’s never any shortage of drama during a bathroom reveal on The Block, but it all came out in the wash in the end! Which was your favourite bathroom from Sunday night’s room reveals?
Spence and Kerrie
A grand entrance, knockout execution, and plenty of storage hallmarked Spence and Kerrie’s bathroom, which was light, bright, spacious, and functional. Meticulous but for the misaligned floor and wall tiling which caught my eye… And not in a good way!
Courtney and Hans
Courtney and Hans’ terazzo tiles and drop ceiling were major talking points on Sunday night. Their hard working bathroom had plenty of storage, and a great vanity which works in harmony with the space, honours the Art Deco heritage of the building, and elevated the room. What let them down this week was their unfinished paint, and plaster, and their badly finished LED lighting.
Hayden and Sarah
Hayden and Sarah seemed to have put little strategic thought into their bathroom this week, and the space didn’t come close to hitting the contemporary, high-end mark we’ve come to expect from The Block. There were simply too many heroes in the room. Mirrors, tiles, brass fittings. This couple needs to have a think about the buyer demographic they are targeting because their bathroom on Sunday had an identity crisis!
Norm and Jess
Towering ceilings… a Japanese maple… backlit marble niches… Norm and Jess sure know how to make a great first impression. What they showed us on Sunday was a totally original take on a Block bathroom, and it made an impression on us. Their design was light on storage, and they need to rethink the positioning of that towel rail next to the hand basin, but they totally got away with the stone-look plastic bathtub. What a clever, budget-beating solution and the fact they are on the penthouse meant there was less structural work needed.
Bianca and Carla
Getting that stone feature wall up to Bianca and Carla’s apartment was a weighty challenge, but in situ it packed a punch and I’m sure the girls would agree it was worth its weight in gold come judging time. Their timber ceiling added to the wow factor, and their breathtaking choice of vanity softens the space beautifully. They need to think about face level storage, which was non-existent, and completely rethink those frosted windows, which were totally out of kilter with the rest of the space. They sure whet our appetites for the rest of their apartment though.
