Walking into Mike and Andrew's luxurious main bedroom and you're instantly struck by the opulence of the room – it's just like a five-star hotel!
"That is exactly what we were shooting for," says Andrew proudly. "We have just got to figure out how to incorporate room service!"
The brothers had always wanted to achieve this look, and through the week they worked tirelessly to pull it off. Sleep? Forget about it – they averaged precisely zero over 48 hours!
Needless to say, they were thrilled to hear the judges appreciate all their hard work.
"I could really go to town on this room – it’s great," Shaynna Blaze tells us. "The main bedroom and the bathroom work really well together. They lowered the roof, which I thought was really ingenious, because it makes you notice these beautiful luxe curtains. It creates a beautiful mood as soon as you walk in; straight away you feel this, 'Ah,' relaxed moment."
"We wanted it to be very 'lady-friendly'," says Mike, excitedly pointing out the acre of cupboard space in their enormous made-to-measure wardrobes.
It's a touch not lost on Shaynna.
"All us girls know – the more cupboard space, the better!" she laughs. "They did it so well, because they've installed a whole wall of full-on storage."
But all these little touches took time – and for a while there, it was looking as though Mike and Andrew might not have a room to reveal.
Thankfully they pulled it all together, even if there were a few things that still needed finishing off.
"Everyone did really well to finish this week. Dan and Dani – more than anyone – faced a lot of hurdles," Andrew says. "We did too, but ours were earlier in the week so it gave us time to rectify. We had a really good team helping us."
And it's all contributed to one outstanding room.
"We absolutely love it," Andrew admits. "I wish we’d ended up having more time – another four hours and it would have looked significantly different in terms of painting and completion of things."
"But everyone needs a deadline," Mike adds, "Otherwise you’d just keep going forever!"
What they loved: "The curtains. They were $230 [from Fabric Conversions]. We got a bit of a deal. We had about 15 samples brought in, and the first sample we pulled out, we knew that was it, instantly," says Mike.
Their lowered roof: "We did that to hide the fixtures. I stole the idea from a hotel. You sacrifice a bit of ceiling, but a lot of people, when they walk in, that's the first thing they see, and we wanted to make sure it all looked neat and tidy," says Mike.
Going the extra mile: "We got stung last week for functionality and execution. Last week they couldn't see all the time we invested in joinery, whereas this week they could open up and see everything," says Andrew.
