The Block 2017: Hallway & Laundry Reveals

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Hi there! Thanks for stopping by today. It was the Hallway and Laundry Reveal on The Block. I am never really fussed on hallways, but I do love a good laundry! It’s always fun to see what the contestants get up to – with an unlimited budget! Because in real life, who really has a pile of money to spend on a laundry?? It’s nice to drool over these 😉

I liked Sticks and Wombat’s effort, but I didn’t love it. Glad they popped another toilet in, but that mirror was hideous. I also like the dryer and washer side-by-side down low. Much more streamline.

I don’t think Josh and Elyse’s was as good as the judges said it was. Why that metal glass door? And the big clunky window as a splashback in the laundry? That could have been slimmer with a piece of glass.

I really liked Jason & Sarah’s this week. It was stunning and grand with the skylights in the entry! Hannah and Clint’s hallway and laundry was tiny in comparison to the others? Not as much space.

The final scores for hallway and laundry week were: Sticks and Wombat on 28.5, Josh and Elyse on 27, Jason and Sarah on 26.5, Ronnie and Georgia on 24.5 and Clint and Hannah on 22.

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

  • Nicole Gray

    I think Jason and Sarah should’ve won too. Their hallway is awesome. It’s wide and clear and I love that they used a shelf rather than a hall table, makes the space look even bigger.
    I don’t understand why anyone would choose black cabinetry in a laundry with a dryer though.

  • Jenni Eyles

    I think the boys hallway was bland and boring, how did that win??

  • Casey Coleman

    I liked them all, I’m really happy the boys had a win, they always put in 100% and are always willing to help anyone so it’s nice to see them finally have a win, but Sarah and Jason’s was pretty amazing but they weren’t finished whereas the boys were.

  • Kathy Fisher

    Sticks and Wombat’s was fabulous – I did agree with the judges that seeing the washing machine and dryer from hallway would drive me nuts. Their craftsmanship is second to none.

    • Löz Alãnnah

      My only gripe was that Jason and Sarah was scored higher than Sticks and Wombat by Darren, I think, and they didn’t even finish. I feel that’s unfair – why bust your arse to finish before everyone if you don’t get scored more for it?

    • Kathy Fisher

      Absolutely agree Löz Alãnnah – I want the judging changed. 50% of the vote should be about the building, structure, finishing and the other 50% about styling – and focusing in on quality of blinds, how hung etc, not whether the cushion is fluffy enough or not.

    • Löz Alãnnah

      I wanted to ask you, on a different topic – did you watch the 60 Minutes interview with Cassie Sainsbury?

    • Kathy Fisher

      Löz Alãnnah oh don’t even get me started on that – “she’s a liar liar pants on fire”. Gosh, I’ve forgotten passwords – but if my life depended on it, now way.

    • Löz Alãnnah

      Haha I was alternating between shaking my head and laughing! It was terrible!

  • Eloisa 'Ely' Glen

    Jason & Sarah’s was beautiful but I don’t think an incomplete room should ever win.

  • Chrissie Taylor

    Yes I agree. Their entrance was majestic!
    I wasn’t a fan of the toilet in the laundry. Near the sink. Who wants to wash/iron etc with a toilet staring at you??
    Not to mention that toilet water can travel a good distance if flushed with the lid up
    And who wants their laundry smelling like

  • Trish Creegan

    Well I liked the winner’s hallway – but I think Josh and Elise should have won! There was no rule to have an extra toilet!!
    Just like there was no rule to build an ensuite in the guest bedroom, when Ronnie and Georgia won that room and had an easy week doing just the bedroom. Not that I agree they were the winners that week either.
    But . . . We are not seeing it in the flesh, so we have to rely on the judges.

  • Bec Hollyman

    Jason and Sarah didn’t finish. If you haven’t done all the work you can’t possibly score higher than those who did.

    • Carmel Foley

      Oh well, they managed a gimme with their kitchen, that was not finished.

    • Bec Hollyman

      Carmel Foley that wasn’t cool either.

    • Melissa Walker Horn

      Agree, Bec. The fact they were even close (though, I agree it was an impressive space) was silly.

  • Cheryl Lucas

    Jason and Sarah didn’t finish so I was happy the boys won

  • Belle Campbell

    Yes it was amazing, but it was unfinished & judges can’t award 1st place to an unfinished room.

  • Karen Jackson

    Sticks and Wombat’s rooms were very ninties- blah!

  • Rachel C Miers

    Loved Jason & Sarahs hallway – so beautiful and just right. Laundry oozing the ‘luxuryiness’ if this is a word. The others too narrow, too tall.

  • Amber Jayne

    I thought josh and elyse hallway was the best. That second door combined with the high ceilings was just awesome. But I agree with the judges that storage was a bit of a let down in the laundry. Jason and Sarah’s hall way was amazing but I’m not a fan of a laundry like theirs. Keep in simple and light, I would prefer. Happy that S and W won though, from what we see on tv their craftsmanship always looks the best.

  • Maureen Harrop Grimwood

    I can’t believe they got 9s when it was the most unfinished and I didnt like the skylights in the hallway at all nor the prints on the wall.

    • Trish Creegan

      Liked the prints but not the ceiling. Who was it that got smashed previously for having a busy ceiling!!
      If it was possible perhaps to have the skylights but not the trusses??
      Haha – oops, can’t believe I’m being so verbal!

  • Chon

    I missed the first bit but what did R&G not finish? I actually quite like their hallway! don’t mind the door in J&E and I usually like her styling wasn’t keen on that hall runner. Kept thinking I would trip for sure.

    I am just glad the boys had a win. Sure, it didn’t look as pretty as the rest but honestly I think once you strip out the styling their house is actually the best by far.

  • Teah Price

    I didn’t really love any of them but I yayed for Sticks and Wombat because they’re my faves!

    • Beck Walker

      I loved the roof in Jason and Sarah and liked the feel of Josh and Elise but was just stoked for the boys.

  • Skye Davis

    Has anyone been able to find out where Jason and Sarah got the sink they used in the laundry? On the Block Shop it just says it’s been swapped but doesn’t say what???

    • Skye Davis

      Katrina Chambers the copper one that was on the room reveals. I’ve been hunting for one.

  • Nerilee Jones

    Can anyone tell me where I can purchase the hallway shelf from Jason & Sarah’s reveal? I spied one on Houzz a couple of months back and it’s exactly what I’m looking for and was thrilled when it popped up last night but can’t find it listed in the Block shop?

  • Cat

    Just wondering do we have floor plans from the block yet? I am confused with some of the spaces lol.
    I think the finished houses will be amazing!

    • Katrina (author)

      I haven’t seen them yet actually.
