The Block 2017 Guest Bedroom Ensuite

The Block Guest Bedroom Ensuite Reveals 2017

Last night on the The Block were the guest bedroom reveals. I usually share the bathrooms and kitchens from The Block on the blog, but three of the teams last night added a guest bedroom ensuite as part of the unveiling of their room. I think it was a clever addition that will make a difference at auction time, however, last night, it held no weight with the scoring, with Ronnie and Georgia producing the winning guest room, without an ensuite.

The Block guest bedroom ensuite reveals were well executed and their use of space can give inspiration on planning an ensuite in a small space.

Here are what three of the teams produced for their guest bedroom ensuite reveals.

Sarah and Jason

Sarah and Jason created an ensuite that is a two way bathroom. I think it’s clever and I liked how they tied this ensuite in with their main bathroom. They also sectioned the vanity and shower and toilet. Not sure I’d put the toilet next to the shower, but still this ensuite will add value to the home. Hopefully it will reflect in the auction price.

Sticks and Wombat

Sticks and Wombat decided to create a modern ensuite that would contrast with their guest bedroom. The ensuite was stunning, but it didn’t correlate with the style in the guest bedroom. Despite that, it’s a gorgeous ensuite showing how a simple marble tile and chrome tapware can work well together.

Josh and Elyse

Josh and Elyse’s ensuite was practical and stylish, however, Shaynna did point out one flaw with the positioning of the shower shelf. Whenever you drill into tiles, you need to get the right height for your shelves and accessories. But that was just a minor flaw.

What did you think of the guest bedroom ensuites? Do you think the winning team should have also produced an ensuite?

    For me, the ensuite are beautiful but lacking in love. I prefer Josh and Elyse’s and think that some greenery would make any of them feel much less antiseptic. And no, the brief was for a bedroom. The real winnings will come with the pleasure of the buyers. It was a great night, wasn’t it?

    • Yes the ensuites were simple ensuites – not design blockbusters, but a few homewares and plants can make them feel less antiseptic as you say. Right now I just watch the reveals because the drama between the teams is not fun watching. x

  • I actually have a post scheduled for Thursday saying why I don’t like the Block, though I agree with it being a great source of inspiration. The contestants are producing some lovely rooms this year.

    • I can’t stand the drama this year. I look at the room reveals and look at them from my tradie background and give comment.
