In Week 3 of the Block NZ the couple's complete their first wet room challenge with the master bathroom. While we think there is a space for a carpet-in-the-bathroom comeback, that's a conversation for another day.
Brooke and Mitch had a clear win this week with all of the other couple's struggling to complete their bathrooms in time.
Top tip: Godfrey Hirst Luxury Vinyl Planks might have been a suitable option. They are quick and easy to install and can be walked on the very same day of installation. Also known as LVP, it is fine in wet areas and has a matte timber finish in a range of colours to suit any interior style. Take a look at our range of Luxury Vinyl Planks.
But that's enough about us, on with the week 3 room reveals!
Winners: Brooke and Mitch
Brooke and Mitch secured their very first win with a classic bathroom that ticked all the boxes: plenty of storage and bench space, loads of natural light, a free-standing bath and a spacious shower. Additional touches like the clever use of the floor tile repeated up one wall and then a textured white mosaic teamed with their simple styling choices helped them win by an easy two points.
Sarah and Minanne
While there was some great features in this bathroom such as the vertical garden and the hexagonal tiles, the darker tile colour on both walls is imposing in such a small space. Instead of complementing the white feature wall and free-standing bath it made them appear tiny. We agree that the pale timber shelves cheapened the space, some extra colour might have lifted this room.
Jamie and Hayden
We really love this space and, if they had finished, Jamie and Hayden could easily have won. We loved the use of timber in the recessed basin, the slatted divider and the raised platform along with the hexagonal grey feature tile. The styling choices of black cabinetry, tap fittings, the towel rack and copper highlight made this bathroom our personal favorite.
Cat and Jeremy
Another gorgeous bathroom filled with clever styling that could have scored a win if finished. From the moss covered feature wall to the matte black tapware. Their styling is beautiful, using a lighter grey tile with pale timber worked much better than Sarah and Minanne's darker tile.
With the bathrooms out of the way, we can now get back to some room reveals featuring some fabulous flooring by Godfrey Hirst.
