IT’S 24 hours to the reveal of one of the biggest weeks on The Block, bedroom and walk in robe reveal week.
Kyle and Leslie had some really tough feedback from the judges last week and are feeling the pressure. They love The Block, but is it worth it as they are really starting to miss their two young boys back in Perth. Kyle is in tears and shows emotion that we haven’t seen before.
Eliza and Liberty aren’t enjoying The Block either, and are having major issues with their builder Mark. The latest problem is Mark refused to get a stonemason for a bench top in their master bedroom and suggested a cheaper timber version instead. This didn’t impress Keith and Dan and they made their feelings clear to the Victorian sisters. Eliza and Liberty ended up confronting Mark about some of the issues between them but had no luck. He also wants the girls to submit their plans for next week well in advance, which isn’t possible on the Block. The vibe isn’t great between the girls and their builder which is only expected to get worse.
Somehow all our couples limp to the finish line and head to Scotty’s HQ for judging. There are smiles on their faces as Scotty tells them they are now officially at the halfway point of The Block.
It’s judging time in what has been a huge week on The Block.
Kyle and Leslie, House No.1 spent $32,793
The judges loved the texture on the bed head but Darren made a good point, it’s a bit rough and cause injuries as you sleep. All three judges Darren, Marty and Shaynna didn’t think Kyle and Leslie utilised and planned the space well. Marty felt the space would look great on Instagram, but it’s not that livable. The judges thought their walk-in-robe was a much better effort but the biggest issue they had was it was far too small. A tough week for the Perth married couple.
Leah and Ash, House No.2 spent $32,371
The curved ceiling was a huge hit with the judges and they praised Leah and Ash for taking risks. However the lack of furniture and functionality in the huge master bedroom didn’t impress the judges. The styling was all over the place. Not enough storage such as bedside tables. Inside the walk-in-robe Marty felt the burgundy colour could date. The fact Leah and Ash didn’t finish as well was a bit of a worry for the judges.
Kristy and Brett, House No 3, spent $42,825
Marty loved the vibe immediately, light and bright. The lighting plan was a bit of a mess, but Kristy and Brett expected that feedback. Once again very small bedside tables, a big miss on The Block this week. Shaynna felt uplifted after seeing Kristy and Brett’s master bedroom and walk in robe, after a slow start with House No.1 and House No.2. A very good effort by the married couple from Adelaide.
Steph and Gian, House No.4 spent $44,064
The biggest master bedroom and walk in robe in Block history was a HUGE hit with all the judges. Walking into the walk in robe with smiles on their faces, all three judges thought it oozed luxury. Stunning wardrobes by Kinsman. The marble benchtop is a huge asset in the walk in robe. Walking into the massive master bedroom the judges were impressed with the layout, and the fact it was also a second living space. So much luxury. Wow is the word the judges used multiple times in this room.
Eliza and LIberty, House No.5, spent $23,952
The judges really felt for the girls as they looked up to the ceiling and the paint job wasn’t finished. Shaynna loved the artwork in the master bedroom. Overall a really good effort by the sisters. More of a contemporary colour palette and lots of storage. Marty feels while they might not win many rooms, they could win The Block because their house is very saleable.
There is a clear winner this week, Steph and Gian’s incredible effort in House No.4
