The Block 2022: Bathroom Wrap Up

The Block 2022: Bathroom Wrap Up

Reading time: 5 mins

Well, that’s a wrap for bathrooms on The Block 2022! 

We have loved seeing each team’s take on what ‘country’ means to them. With plenty of stunning organic shapes and textures, creative tiling, feature vanities and the use of tapware and accessories to bring a country-chic aesthetic to the Macedon Ranges.

This year it was Omar and Oz, the boys from Western Sydney who dominated the bathroom weeks, winning both main bathroom and master ensuite, and their guest ensuite missing out by just one point. The boys received praise for their perfectly proportioned features and flow in their main bathroom. With a large dark timber vanity, freestanding bath, and pops of gold to add colour to their white walls.

However, it was their Master Ensuite that really won the judges over; an impressive effort given it was the smallest space to work with. The judges labelled their ensuite as ‘ingenious’ and named the duo ‘The Bathroom Kings’. Winning points for their functional layout, maximising space, and liveability, whilst never compromising on design. The boys made the most of our 3D planner, Imagin3D, to nail the flow of their bathrooms.

We loved that the judges acknowledged there was ‘nothing revolutionary’ about Omar and Oz’s master ensuite when it came to their materials, but they were won over with statement pieces. The inclusion of a Laufen Val Freestanding Round Bath, and their creative shower placement were both great space-saving decisions. These, together with their neutral colour palette and Mizu Drift brushed gold tapware and accessories, made for a winning combination.

Guest bathroom week winners Tom and Sarah-Jane stunned the judges with their confident design, boasting mustard tiles, gold finishes and beautiful timber tones. The centrepiece of their bathroom was statement pieces, the Kado Arc Timber Drawer Vanity and the matching Kado Arc Shaving Cabinet, creating plenty of storage and a wonderful warm space with a rustic feel.

Whilst Tom and Sarah-Jane nailed the country brief, they didn’t fail to bring luxury to their ensuite and powder room. Keeping their tapware and accessories consistent throughout their bathrooms, they gave their rooms a luxurious, elegant feel with Milli Oria tapware and Milli Mood Edit shower and accessories in the high-quality brushed gold PVD finish.

One of the biggest takeaways from this season’s bathrooms was how the teams used tapware to elevate their bathrooms, bringing luxury to their take on ‘country’ as briefed by the judges. We saw plenty of stunning brushed gold tapware and accessories. The Mizu Drift and Milli Oria were favoured by the Blockheads and the judges, with both collections featured in the winning bathrooms. We also loved the return of lever and three-piece tapware, bringing a traditional heritage feel to a modern design.

We loved seeing how the Blockheads got creative with their vanities. There were plenty of stunning feature vanities, paired with beautiful above counter basins and on-wall tapware. We particularly loved the timber tones the Kado Arc and Kado Aspect vanities brought to the contestants’ space, including Omar and Oz’s winning ensuite. ADP X Alisa and Lysandra collections were popular choices with contestants too; the Archie Vanity, personalised with black doors and gold hardware, featured in the winning main bathroom.

As we’ve learned from the successful bathrooms on The Block, nailing your layout is a crucial step in creating a beautiful and functional room. Getting creative and thinking outside the square when it comes to maximising the space of your bathroom is so beneficial to creating a final product that you love. The Blockheads found it so beneficial to use our 3D planner, Imagin3D to help them plan and visualise their bathrooms.
