The Block 2017: Bathroom Reveal

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]Hi there! Thanks for stopping by today. It was Bathroom week this week on The Block and the contestants delivered the goods! I was pretty happy with some of these show-stoppers. The houses are no doubt going to be good quality. I don’t care too much for all the hoo-ha that comes about with the drama during the week, so my favourite thing is to just look at the final results and drool over them.

Come and check them out in order of points this week…[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]

Josh & Elyse

ROUND BATH. What the? I love it. It’s pretty special. I’m pretty sure my boys would think it’s a swimming pool though. I loved the mirror too. The tiles were pretty basic, and I was surprised the vanity was only a single. I would have thought a double was more appropriate for this space. So therefore I am also not sold on the actual configuration of the space. There seems to be a wasted area which they filled with a planter box. I do love the recessed niches through the shower area too.

Josh and Elyse were the winners this week with a score of 27/30 and added a $10,000 cash prize to their budget.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48512″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Mirror[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48513″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Light[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48514″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Vanity[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Sticks & Wombat

Sticks and Wombat scored 26.5/30 which put them in 2nd place this week. The judges were very impressed with their style. The feature in the shower really wowed Shaynna and Neil. The boys had some lovely finishing touches. I think their style will be more classic don’t you think? I’m not in love with it myself, but it is nice.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48515″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Light[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48516″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Feature Tile[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48517″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Toilet roll holder[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Georgia & Ronnie

Black and white always looks nice in a bathroom. This one will age well with the classic bath too. I really did like this bathroom produced by Georgia and Ronnie. They scored 25.5/30 this week. I was gobsmacked at the $1,500 gold speaker on the floor in the bathroom.

Sarah & Jason

Jason and Sarah scored 4th place with 24/30. This was a nice bathroom overall. It was way over-accessorised though. I love the double vanity! I can’t quite tell from the proportions in the room if that door will open properly or will it be tight to get in to? They look like they had a smaller space to work with than some of the others.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48521″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Pendant[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48522″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Bath Caddy[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48523″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Mirror[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Hannah & Clint

What a shame Hannah and Clint didn’t get a chance to fully finish their bathroom. I think this looks great and could have been in the top couple of places this week had it been complete. They scored last with 16/30 which was harsh![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48374″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Pendant[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48524″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Stool[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”48525″ onclick=”custom_link” link=””][vc_column_text]Spray[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Bathroom week was obviously sponsored by round mirrors! Ha!

What did you think of the rooms? Which did you prefer? ♥ KC.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]


  • Alex McLean

    I think the single sinks were an odd choice, especially in the larger rooms. And I wouldn’t have put round mirrors in all of them either, the one with the circle bath yes but the others probably not. The circle bath is pretty cool though.

  • Sally

    Round bath – cool, but impractical. Imagine filling that for kids?
    Wombat – hated the toilet roll holder/accessories. Didn’t really dig the feature tile either.
    Black and white floor – done to death and I think will date.
    The over accessorised one – looks like my bathroom when I need to clean all of the kids towels and things out of it!! I just wanted to put things away.
    Not finished one – alway feel bad for them…

  • Sarah Read

    To be honest, none of them really did it for me. I didn’t mine the boys bathroom and I agree the tap in the above picture being in the way., I reckon my thigh would connect with that every morning on my way to the shower LOL

  • Robyn Elizabeth

    Thought the round bath looked impressive, but not so practical to sit in and it took up a lot of space. Love the round mirrors, especially the one with storage behind it. Didn’t like the custom timber vanity.

  • Caroline

    Bugger, had been looking at using penny rounds but looks like the shark has jumped on that trend!
    Hate the boy’s no idea why so many loved it. First one would have looked great with white walls. I was planning large format grey but this has put me off it. First bathrooms vanity way too small. But I love their ledge running along 2 walls.
    Rest fade into nothingness for me. Quite liked the black and white one but not so keen on patterned floor tiles for some reason.

  • Caroline

    Also, meant to add, don’t really love tge feature mosaics but it’s very clever way of implying a window is there. It’s probably the highlight of the boys bathroom, its all their under-sized miss-matched fittings which really let them down.

  • Robyn Cutler

    Loved Wombat and Sticks bathroom. Thought it was a winner. Loads more character and warmth.

  • Kate

    I think the judges got it pretty right, I love, love, LOVE the top two! ?
    Shayna’s ‘3’ for Hannah and Clint was harsh but I thought Darren and Neale were pretty generous, if they had finished it would have been lovely. Hope they don’t lose heart ?
