The Block's best room reveals of all time

Here's what it takes to get a perfect score from the judges.

When it comes to reality show renovations, The Block contestants rarely disappoint. But out of hundreds of room reveals, only a handful have ever secured a top score of 10 from all three judges Shaynna Blaze, Darren Palmer and Neale Whitaker.

With Season 19 kicking off Sunday, 6 August, on Channel 9 and 9Now, here’s a look at some of the most stunning Block transformations over the years.

Season 18: Tom and Sarah Jane's kitchen

This incredible transformation saw the parents from Melbourne get a perfect score of ​​30 out of 30, and it's not hard to see why. The judges were totally blown away by Tom and Sarah's contemporary country kitchen with timber cabinetry, beautiful stone counters, and functional features. In Neale Whitaker's words, it was quite simply "pure luxury".

Season 17: Mitch and Mark's facade and front yard

Not every winning space has to be inside. For Mitch and Mark back in Season 17, the front of their house was their ticket to a perfect score. The pair not only created an aesthetically pleasing outdoor area but it was praised for being family-friendly too.

Season 17: Josh and Luke's master ensuite

Every now and then, The Block contestants really surprise, and Josh and Luke did just that with their master ensuite. The pair thought outside the box, creating an indoor-outdoor space unlike most bathrooms. The transformation was likened to a "luxury retreat" thanks to the open-air bath and impeccable styling.

Season 13: Ronnie and Georgia's master bedroom

Colour matching is everything on The Block, and Ronnie and Georgia consistently wowed the judges with their blush pink and monochrome tones throughout their Elsternwick home. But the master bedroom is what really swept the judges off their feet. The romantic retreat didn't only impress them for having a layout that "really worked", but the standout feature was the concealed TV that popped out of the wall, teaming design, convenience and functionality in one beautifully presented bedroom.

Season 16: Sarah and George's backyard

The couple from Western Sydney definitely pulled out all the stops during their season of The Block, and their backyard won them a prized place in the judges' hearts. Gaining a perfect score for their outdoor area, the pair was praised for their "magazine cover worthy" pool setting.

Season 16: Jas and Luke's kids' bedroom

When it comes to kids' rooms, it doesn't get much cooler than a loft bunk bed. And that's exactly what scored Jas and Luke a perfect score from all three judges on Season 16. Apart from the space-saving bed, the pair won over the judges with their cute and cozy jungle-theme styling.

The room did prove controversial, however, when it came to light that it was copied from The Designory. "When you present it in a competition and say, 'I put this together', it’s like, 'Well, no you haven't! You just copied somebody else's hard work and claimed it as your own'," Shayna said in a later episode.

Season 12: Dan and Carleen's kitchen

It's a pretty big call, but Dan and Carleen's kitchen was dubbed the best room ever on The Block, and there's a good reason why: it ticked all the boxes.

The judges all scored this room a perfect 10, saying that it demonstrated the ideal combination of fresh and functional. The "truly cohesive" space won them over because it delivered this without lacking luxury.

Season 9: Dea and Darren's terrace

Dea and Darren were known for creating some incredible spaces, with all of their outdoor areas throughout The Block scoring exceptionally well.

Their terrace on the Glasshouse series earned them a 10 out of 10 from all three judges. The couple scored another set of perfect 10s for their impeccable terrace when they returned for the Triple Threat series.
