Week 2 on The Block, and the couples have hit the ground running. Bathroom week is always difficult to pull off. Add in a laundry and drying terrace, and you've got guaranteed drama. Once again, the couples had complete control over the dimensions and layouts of these spaces. Miscommunications with the builders as to drainage placement, the installation of external doors, and a failed screed that had to be replaced before waterproofing; all looked like derailing the reveals this week, but all the couples delivered gorgeous spaces!
Brad and Dale
Brad had mentioned all week long that Sophie and he had won bathroom week on The Block before...no doubt to remind Alisa and Lysandra that they weren't the only ones who could create a knock out bathroom...or perhaps it was to boost his own confidence. In any case, it paid off with a very impressive win! I'm absolutely loving Brad and Dale's pared back style this season. Their simple decor, and attention to detail is what really sets them apart.
I really want to like Chantelle and Steve's style, but I feel they're still finding their groove. I like some of the ideas, but it doesn't seem to gel together. I cannot even begin to imagine how they must be feeling (floundering comes to mind). I don't feel like they made the best use of this space. The bathroom is small and lacks storage, however the vanity styling looks great and would probably suit a powder room, more than a full bathroom.

When they first showed Kyal and Kara selecting the grey hexagon tiles, I had seriously high hopes. Those tiles are super stylish, and I think they may need to find a home in the Warren house somehow. There is no doubt that Kyal and Kara have style, however they seemed to stumble a little this week. One of the key features in any bathroom is storage...whether that's closed storage within a cabinet, or bench space...it's an essential. This bathroom doesn't have any storage at all. If only they'd built in a mirror cabinet. They would have achieved the same look, but there'd be space to put things away.
