Neale Whitaker Presents The Block 2020 Kitchens
It’s a tough job but someone has to do it – at least that’s what Shaynna, Darren and I tell ourselves each Kitchen Week!
Judging five super-luxe, state-of-the-art kitchens and awarding points for design, functionality, finish and execution and overall appropriateness to the location and demographic (Melbourne’s leafy bayside suburb of Brighton), property value (somewhere north of $3 million) and in the case of the 2020 kitchens, the original era of the house. Victorians Harry and Tash scored the 1920s, New South Wales’s Sarah and George the 1940s, Daniel and Jade from South Australia the 1930s, WA’s Luke and Jasmin the 1910s, and Queensland’s Jimmy and Tam the 1950s.
But for each couple, the kitchen represented the transition from old to new – and that sweet spot where a house becomes a true, family home.
