The Block – The Bathrooms Are Judged – Rod And Tania Win
Polly and Waz say they were inexperienced at design, and they are also inexperienced in renovation. What can they do? I really like them but there is no way they will win this series of The Block.
Tonight it was time to judge the laundry and bathrooms, and after it being the Josh and Jenna show all last week all the other teams were hoping they wouldn’t be winning again.
The judges John McGrath and Neale Whittaker really like Josh and Jenna’s style which is modern with a retro twist. What held them back this week was the execution – a lot was unfinished the halogen light was falling out, one of the basin cupboards was dirty.
On the plus side they think they have a really good eye. Functionality of the rooms were very good, with good storage. They got 7 for design, and they only got a 5 for execution. If they had completed the room properly they would have given first prize a shake.
Polly and Waz have continued to improve from the first week. The judges liked the lighting and splashback in laudnry. They also liked the matching splashback in the shower, however they would have liked it to have gone to the ceiling. They did not like the floral arrangement. Polly and Waz got a 7 for design and a 6 for execution.
Aimee and Katrina who had to sack their builder earlier in the week, think their bathroom is a bit funky and out there. The judges didn’t like the check towels, and the black wall. They liked the tiles, but wondered why there was a mirrored kick board. As did I? They also liked the vanity and the artwork. Design was 7, execution let them down and they got a 6.
Rod and Tania kept the swingers theme going with the disco lights in their laundry and bathroom.However the judges loved the storage in the laundry and the pull out ironing board. They also liked the stainless steel basin. However they liked he design aspect of the basin in the bathroom, but queried the practicality of it. I don’t like it as it appears you can’t fill up the basin. The bath was absolutely outstanding, except if there were water shortages. They also got 7 for design, and an 8 for execution, therefore they won the week.
Next week the teams have to do their master bedroom and ensuite.
