Dyls and Dylz | Living Room | The Block NZ 2016

The Block NZ: Week 5 - Living Rooms! Take a look at where to find the hard flooring here at The Flooring Foundation.

Paler floors give the room a warm, Scandinavian feel.

Dyls and Dylz Living Room

Dyls and Dylz Villa timber flooring in Summer Blonde

The two Dyls seem to be getting the hang of things. The judges complemented the boys on their choice of paler floors that gives the room a warm, Scandinavian feel. The Villa timber paired with that fabulous couch, the sold timber barn door, warm wall colour and black touches, creates a cosy and open room. We stand with the judges and will never speak of the artwork again.

Handcrafted floorboards enhance this space.

Emma and Courtney's Living Room

Emma and Courtney's Regal Oak in Astor

The clever use of gold, orange and black hues in cushions, artwork and vases gives this space a real colour lift. Plenty of elements work well like the re-purposed retro chair with the shag throw, the built-in storage and the dark timber side board. Our tip: a larger, black rug would make a stronger impact against the timber flooring, or just leave the Regal Oak handcrafted floorboards to speak for themselves.

Contemporary, clever and fresh.

Niki and Tiff's Living Room

Niki and Tiff used Regal Oak in Windsor

One thing Niki and Tiff do very well is the loft/warehouse style and choosing Regal Oak handcrafted wide floors is the perfect choice for this look. Their styling is contemporary, clever and fresh. While the judges thought their living room lacked homeliness, we love the thick orange rug and complementary artwork and the chunky white barn door with black features.

A cozy space.

Sam and Emmett's Living Room

Sam and Emmett's room used Vue Laminate in Moutain Oak Heritage Brown

Sam and Emmett achieved their goal of creating a cosy living room. The judges felt the boys had too much crammed in to this space but several features worked well. The leather wingback chair, foot stool and matching poufs teamed with the timber coffee table and the deep dark tones of the laminate floor work beautifully together.
