This week on The Block NZ the team’s had the chance to do-over a past mistake and show the judges that they’re taking their advice on board
The Block NZ: Week seven the ‘do-over’ room reveal
From Andy and Nate’s black and white bathroom to Stace and Yanita’s cramped living room, there have a been a few shockers over the past six weeks on The Block NZ. Luckily for the teams, this week’s room reveal brief allocated $2000 to do-over one of their past disasters. With only 52 hours and another brief from Peter Wolfkamp to plaster their enormous 9m stairwell, the teams were really feeling the pressure.
Although Andy and Nate’s bathroom would have been the ideal room to redo the tight budget and limited time meant the they settled on improving their kitchen and living area instead. The judges said Andy and Nate’s living room felt too much like a commercial space. They also said the wooden louvre feature was chunky and looked like a bed and they hated the ‘coffin-like’ tv cabinet. So Andy and Nate set about rearranging the space, rebuilding the louvre and cabinet to create more of a ‘homey-feel’.
Julia and Ali received an abysmal for their attempt at a little boys room at the start of the season. After making up for their botched efforts by repeating the kid’s room brief in the ‘blank canvas’ room reveal, the twins had the perfect opportunity this week to get rid of the black mark on their record.
Ling and Zing may be spoilt for choice when it comes to past disasters, but conflicting ideas about which room to redo and with limited time up their sleeves, the brother’s decided to fix up bit and pieces that they didn’t get around to doing. While touching up paint, fixing cabinets and finishing the hallway are important jobs for the overall look of the house this decision went against the brief of choosing one space to do-over and they received the lowest score in Block history – 0.5!
Battling with an AWOL plasterer and with 80% of their budget already spent, Stace and Yanita‘s room reveal was not a smooth one this week. The besties decided to redo their living room to make it feel more open plan. By swapping their couch, removing the scaffold room divider and adding a desk space the room instantly felt like more of a livable space.
