Kristy & Brett - House 03

In this week's episode of The Block 2023, Kristy and Brett faced a noticeable lack of motivation in their bathroom renovation. Would this impact the final product?

The judges found the couple had replicated their master ensuite layout, which initially impressed them. However, as they delved deeper, they discovered numerous issues. The bathroom was far from complete, with the basin uninstalled, the toilet and sink unconnected, and an unfixed door stopper causing trouble. Neale described the room as "just chaos."

Despite the unfinished state, there was a unique sculptural light that caught the eye.

Its curved arm design makes the Orion 2 light pendants in black with smoke glass a captivating addition to Kristy and Brett’s home, even amidst challenges.

Steph & Gian - House 04

Steph and Gian's Jack n’ Jill bathroom in The Block 2023 oozed luxury with a vanity, marble, Venetian plaster, and textured tiles. However, some functional aspects needed attention, such as the lack of task lighting and high towel rails unsuitable for a kids' room.

Their focus was on creating a T-blade wall to accommodate the bath, shower, and toilet for their Jack and Jill bathroom connecting to the kids' bedrooms. The question remained whether their grand plans would earn them back-to-back wins.

Steph expressed her pride in the bathroom's layout, and the judges seemed to agree, with Neale's reaction being a resounding "wow."

They received praise for their face-level storage, black tapware, and matching marble benchtops. The room's design was celebrated for its balance of timber, woven elements, green accents, and natural stone.

Eliza & Liberty - House 05

Eliza and Liberty wowed everyone on The Block 2023 with their delightful kids' bathroom. It featured dark green tiles, a striking giant terrazzo element, and minty basins, creating a functional and charming space.

Judges were instantly impressed when they entered the room. Darren summed it up with a single word: "Boom." Shaynna couldn't hide her excitement, particularly over the beautiful floor. Shaynna highlighted the bathroom's timeless quality, a space that would "grow with" the children, describing it as sophisticated. Darren praised the departure from the original colour palette, applauding the girls for their colour choices, including green, terracotta, dusty mint, and brass.

The attention to detail also earned praise, with Shaynna noting the switch covers matching the tiles, a sign of the sisters' attentiveness.
