The Block judge Darren Palmer issues a SAVAGE assessment on bathrooms

He’s known to speak his mind when critiquing the room reveals on The Block.

And judge Darren Palmer issued a savage assessment of two bathrooms from competing teams on Sunday night’s episode.

The interior design guru found the wall structure of Harry and Tash’s bathroom to be concerning, before admitting to ‘not liking anything’ about Daniel and Jade’s tiling.

Sunday’s episode saw the five teams choosing to style two rooms, one of which had to be a bathroom.  

Harry and Tash’s 1920’s bedroom started off on a positive note with all three judges, however their ensuite was a very different story.  

While Darren, Shaynna Blaze and Neale Whitaker were in awe of the colour palette and basin choice, Darren noticed a structural nightmare in builders having erected a straight frame crooked.

‘It’s a screw up! It’s sad that an error like that can undo all of this hard work, especially in this stressful environment,’ he said. 

Darren was also vocal when it came to assessing Daniel and Jade’s 1930’s bathroom. 

He was in awe of both kids’ bedrooms they had styled moments prior, however he admitted to ‘pretty much [not liking] all’ of their bathroom.

Referencing the three different tiles used, he said: ‘When you pair that, with that tile, it’s two different feelings. The concrete, the marble and then this. These three choices fight against each other.’ 

Darren also found fault in missing structural detail on the towel rail and gaps above the tiles on the walls.      

Meanwhile, for Sarah and George’s 1940’s bedroom and bathroom, it was all positive.

However, when it came to their bathroom in a bright peach and stone colour palette, the judges were concerned that it was too outside of the box.

‘This is the hi-vis of bathrooms,’ Darren joked, while Shaynna added that it’s important to not be ‘too niche’ when attracting potential buyers.   

The episode saw Luke and Jasmin winning the room reveal with 30 points, followed by a tie on 29 with Sarah and George, and Jimmy and Tam.

Daniel and Jade placed third on 25-and-a-half points, and Harry and Tash on 23-and-a-half.  

The Block continues Monday at 7.30pm on Channel Nine
