Did you know that an outdoor entertaining area is considered the most important feature of a home?*
This is exactly what The Block contestants needed to do, so when Channel 9’s producers discovered Outdure’s product with its quick, seamless installation and ability to achieve all the latest home design looks, we soon became the preferred supplier for their outdoor areas. Outdure’s aluminium QwickBuild® framing system is perfect to ensure a seamless indoor/outdoor flow and allows different surfaces to create your perfect outdoor space. Keith, The Block Foreman, even said that Outdure’s QwickBuild® is “an incredible system” and we all know how hard he is to please!
HOUSE 1 – MITCH & MARK
Mitch and Mark decided on a fun and vibrant outdoor entertaining area.
They selected our Mineral structural tiles in Oasis laid on QwickBuild to complement the eclectic range of materials and tiled seats.
“For us, the aesthetics of the tile is what made it our winning courtyard”
HOUSE 2 – TESS & LUKE
Tess and Luke’s outdoor aesthetic is a dark and modern look to match the interior style of their home. To achieve this, they integrated two different Mineral range tiles in Oasis and Haze onto QwickBuild – Don’t be afraid to create a wow factor using contrasting colours.
“With Outdure… we’re just flying through”
HOUSE 3 – DEB & ANDY
Deb and Andy wanted to create a beach feel style with natural accents, which they achieved with UltraPlush turf and Stone Inspire Omaha tile. The use of turf and creating planter boxes with lots of greenery, creates an outdoor oasis within a modern townhouse dwelling.
“The ability to create the indoor level with the outdoor using turf (fake grass) just brought everything together for us”
HOUSE 4 – EL’ISE & MATT
El’ise and Matt achieved a simple outdoor area that seamlessly integrated from their living room to the outside. They had the legendary Dave Franklin help with their landscape design who chose Stone Inspire tiles in River on QwickBuild for a natural effect. Judge Shaynna really liked the tiles they chose:
“A beautiful texture to it that actually works with the lodge”
HOUSE 5 – JESSE & MEL ‘WINNERS’
Jesse and Mel opted to add a green wall as the key feature, complemented by Stone Inspire tiles in Omaha, on QwickBuild for an elegant outdoor entertaining area and the beautifully crafted bench seats.
This is what Jesse had to say about QwickBuild aluminium sub-structure system for the tiles:
“Honestly, I’ve been laying tiles for 10 years of my life, this is the fastest way I have ever done it. Without a doubt!”
