02 Sep Space and Styling – Master Bedrooms on The Block
What are the take away’s from the latest round of reveals, which this week were the master bedroom and walk-in wardrobes…
The height of roofness
The most immediately obvious difference between each room this week as ceiling height, starting with Ronnie & Georgia’s cathedral-like raked ceiling stretching a gargantuan six metres tall!
On the other end of the spectrum, Josh and Luke took a risk in having their ceilings much lower than other rooms.
Kirsty and Jesse’s master came in as the in-betweener, featuring pitched skylights atop their sliding doors.
Sound thinking and design
The target market for The Block houses is always families, so the contestants need to be creating a retreat for the parents. After all, they’re the ones buying the place!
Room to swing a cat – or at the very least a coat.
A master bedroom needs a walk-in robe to match, and this is what let a few of the teams down this week. Mitch and Mark created a well sized walk-in, as Deb says “The wardrobe is a good size. I love that big mirror at the end, that sort of extends the space of the wardrobe.”
Josh and Luke secured the win off the back of their palatial walk-in.
This proved to be a point of controversy this week, with the potential rule-breaking help of one of the twins’ fiancé who came for a visit and offered a few pointers on how to style the walk-in robe.
From here the teams move underground, where they must complete half their basement areas. We can’t wait to see what they each come up with!
