Contestants on Australia’s channel 9 show, The Block have now tackled their wet rooms. Judges Neale Whitaker and John McGrath were impressed with Rod and Tania’s clever use of space in the laundry and sophisticated design elements in the main bathroom and Jenna and Josh’s luxurious ensuite which they noted as the best room on The Block so far.

Rod and Tania’s winning design featured Stegbar custom glass panelling on their bathroom walls enhanced with a custom frameless showerscreen and mirrors, floating bench top and custom-made bathtub.

Jenna and Josh went all out with glass in their ensuite with a Mirastar splashback to give the illusion of space, a frameless showerscreen, custom-made cabinet with mirrored doors and a custom glass door to the entrance of the ensuite.

JELD-WEN Australia’s director of marketing Bruce Tosello said the bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in a home and is the room where people most want to make a design statement.

“The bathroom renovations we have seen on The Block this past week have shown one of the biggest challenges facing renovators – creating a space that can adapt to suit the needs of every member of the household, while also being a reflection of their personal style,” said Bruce.

“Homeowners struggling with incorporating both practicality and style in a bathroom design that meets their budget requirements should definitely consider looking at Stegbar’s range of bathroom products.”

Stegbar’s range of frameless, semi-frameless and framed showerscreens offers everyone a solution. A frameless showerscreen can instantly add a touch of luxury and elegance to any bathroom whether it’s the high traffic family bathroom or your own personal ensuite where you retreat from the world. If you want a frameless look but have budget restrictions then check out Stegbar’s Grange and new FLASH showerscreen that gives homeowners a contemporary semi-frameless look.

By far the biggest benefit of a mirror is its ability to make any room in a home appear more spacious and while a mirror is almost always found in every bathroom, Stegbar can custom design and make one to suit your own style, whatever shape or size you have in mind. You bring the design and Stegbar will add the drama. If you’re really looking to make a statement then check out Stegbar’s Mirastar splashbacks.

Glass panelling has emerged as the modern and contemporary alternative to tiles in more than just a bathroom in a home and it proved the winning advantage for Rod and Tania. Homeowners are naturally looking to transform their bathrooms to suit their own design tastes. Stegbar’s coloured glass panels encourage this freedom giving homeowners the option to choose the colour and the panel size for the area they wish to cover, or opt for a floor to ceiling wall installation for a truly distinctive look.

By far, one of the most practical benefits of glass panels is the ease of cleaning. Unlike tiles, glass panels have no grout lines, reducing the chances of unsightly mould and grime build-up, which means you don’t waste needless time cleaning your bathroom and can get back to doing what you love in next to no time.

JELD-WEN Australia’s involvement in The Block is all about showcasing the innovative and stylish range of products available to Australian homeowners, and will inspire homeowners with the broad range of standard and custom product options in each home that can transform the way they live.
