They have spent the last 12 weeks putting everything into their Block homes.

And although Sunday night’s auction saw the couples take home a collective profit of just under $1.3 million, some teams always had the edge when it came to their winning rooms.

From luxurious guest bedrooms and top notch kitchens, to sleek and stylish sitting rooms, Daily Mail Australia takes a look back at the rooms that won the top marks from the judges.

The team’s second room featured a blue velvet bedhead as its focal point.

Using his carpentry skills, Josh added wooden panels to the lower half of the room’s white walls, which gave the room a vintage feel. 

Adding a minimalistic side table – and a touch of greenery – the room ticked all the boxes for the judges.
