The Block Octagon: Combined Apartment [bedroom + ensuite]

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Last night, finally after the cricket, we saw reveal number 1 of the challenge apartment. I always think this is the worst part of the show! Who wants to start making over ANOTHER house when you think you’ve already finished?? Argh! Anyway, Dean and Shay took out first place with 29/30 for their enuite.

The final prize is a share of $30,000 to spend on renovations or to come off the reserve price for the all-important auction.

The judges loved Dena and Shay’s ensuite and especially loved the gold tapware. With the win they get to take $15,000 off their yet to be revealed reserve price.

Shaynna called it serene while Darren said the styling of the bed was stunning.

“I’d be a very happy guest staying in that bedroom, using this bathroom,” Neale said.

I thought it was just ok, kind of typical. Nothing really stood out to me? What about you? I think I am just over the suede (I mean render) effect.

The judges liked their bed but felt the styling wasn’t quite as sophisticated as Kingi and Caro’s room. I actually thought this was one of their best rooms ever and it definitely deserved second place. The wall and the pendants were fab, with just the right pop of colour in the artwork.

The judges said their room was a little under-done with a showerscreen mishap and some caulking not finished.

I liked the space, it was simple and worked well.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Suzi and Vonni were last this week with a score of 22.5/30. Their space was huge and I thought for sure they would take out the win?? I liked it! It was like a day spa and the only ensuite with a bath. The shower was luxurious. Bummer they didn’t score higher. What did you think??

Did the judges get it right last night?

If you were on the show would you want to start renovating another apartment after you’ve finished your own?[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][/vc_column][/vc_row]

    I didn’t see it at all last night. Only room reveal I didn’t get to see. Love ebony & lukes artwork! I’m not too sure what they didn’t like about the girls bathrooms but it didn’t look too bad. Will be interesting to see what they make at auction.

  • Coighty

    Luke & Eb should have definitely finished in the top 2! I think it was an interesting decision by them to put the $5K back into the apartment rather than off the rreserve – maybe it will make all the difference at auction

  • Inge

    Great rooms in the apartment so far. I love the bathroom and bedroom. Looking forward to seeing the finished apartment.
