23 Jul, 2021

This season showcases four stunning builds that are the most impressive architecturally designed houses The Block NZ has ever seen, set in Auckland’s aspirational inner-west suburb of Point Chevalier. All of the hard flooring and carpet featured throughout the homes has been proudly provided by Flooring Xtra. Join us each week, as we take a look at the teams’ finished rooms and see how they bring their ideas (and flooring) to life!
This week saw the teams take on the heart of the home, the kitchen & dining room. Maybe the most challenging parts of the house, we think all the teams did an awesome job creating impressive and stylish spaces.
THE WINNING KITCHEN & DINING ROOM: Tim & Arthur
Black accents combine with warm wooden elements to create the most contemporary and elegant kitchen & dining room in Tim & Arthur's home. The rooms are finished with modern art pieces and complementary vibrant florals.
On the floor is Quick-Step Imperio engineered timber in Natural Heritage Oak Oiled. Its warm undertones and striking knot details introduce a natural look and feel to the home, while its extra long and wide plank sizes exude class and elegance.
Meg & Dan's Kitchen & Dining Room
Delightfully bright, Meg & Dan's kitchen & dining room utilises a calming white palette with soft toned woods, to create a functional space that feels both modern yet classic.

The strikingly dark wood look has a high-end feel, further emphasised by the extra wide planking and authentic rustic timber patterning. Quick-Step Majestic's 'HydroSeal' coating allows water to form droplets on the floors surface which can simply be wiped off, making this laminate a great option for the kitchen.
Connie & Rach's Kitchen & Dining Room
Whimsical and unique, Connie & Rach's kitchen & dining room combines texture and colour craft-fully. The delicate tiling on the splash-back and kitchen island introduce a modern touch, while the emerald green cabinetry and custom velvet nook bring a warm and inviting feel.
