JELD-WEN Australia brands transforming The Block in 2011
Several products from the JELD-WEN Australia range have been used by contestants of Channel 9’s The Block including doors, windows, mirrors, showerscreens, wardrobes and splashbacks.
Rod and Tania’s winning design for the wet rooms featured Stegbar custom glass panelling on their bathroom walls enhanced with a custom frameless showerscreen and mirrors, floating bench top and custom made bathtub.
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. The judges also noted Jenna and Josh’s luxurious ensuite as the best room on The Block so far.
Going with a glass theme in their ensuite, Jenna and Josh chose a Mirastar splashback to give the illusion of space in addition to 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 observes that the bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in a home and also the room where people most want to make a design impact.
Bruce says that the bathroom renovations seen on The Block have shown one of the biggest challenges facing renovators – of creating a space that can adapt to the needs of every member of the household, while also reflecting their personal style.
He adds that homeowners trying to balance style, functionality and budget in a bathroom design should definitely consider Stegbar’s range of bathroom products.
Stegbar’s range of frameless, semi-frameless and framed showerscreens offers everyone a solution. Frameless showerscreens offer design versatility, adding luxury and elegance to high traffic family bathrooms as well as personal ensuites.
Semi frameless showerscreens are suitable for homeowners who desire a frameless look but have budget restrictions. Stegbar’s Grange and FLASH showerscreens lend a contemporary semi-frameless look.
Stegbar’s bathroom mirrors can be custom designed to suit specific style, shape or size requirements. Stegbar’s Mirastar splashbacks are ideal for those looking to make a statement.
Glass panelling has emerged as the modern and contemporary alternative to tiles in more than just a bathroom in a home, which also proved the winning advantage for Rod and Tania. Stegbar’s coloured glass panels allow homeowners to choose the colour and panel size for the area they wish to cover, or opt for a floor to ceiling wall installation for a truly distinctive look.
In addition to a smart look, glass panels also offer ease of cleaning. Unlike tiles, glass panels have no grout lines, reducing the chances of unsightly mould and grime build-up.
JELD-WEN Australia’s involvement in The Block is all about showcasing the innovative and stylish range of products available to Australian homeowners.
