Recap | Dream Home on Channel 7 (30 June)

Dream Home on Channel 7 – Rhys and Liam claim top spot. Queensland tradie brothers deliver near perfect scores.

Tonight on Dream Home: Queensland tradie brothers Rhys and Liam won the week with near-perfect scores, claiming their place at the top of the leaderboard with only half a point separating them from Lara and Peter in second place.   

With the grand final approaching, judges Simon Cohen, Lana Taylor and Rosie Morley delivered their verdict on the first phase of NSW renovations.

After accidently burning the trim on their custom-made bed at Lara and Peter’s Belrose home, a nervous Brad and Mel were relieved to hear praise for their master bedroom.

The built-in bedhead and the on brief Mediterranean feel of the space blew Lana away. Simon agreed, saying the beautiful design made it feel like a hotel room in Greece.

The judges loved Jordan and Jacinta’s living room. Lana was impressed by the clay finish around the recessed TV nook, and Simon was wowed by the smart design of the fireplace.

However, the judges found the couple’s ensuite underwhelming. Simon questioned the harsh lighting while Rosie suggested the blank wall should have been painted or tiled.  

In a huge gamble that paid off, brothers Rhys and Liam took on several spaces this week, including the kitchen, laundry, and bathroom.

The pair’s kitchen was a big hit with the judges, who applauded the brother’s use of natural light in the space. The judges also praised the clever design of their butler’s pantry.

The judges agreed their laundry was on brief, but noted more bench space would have been ideal. They also praised the warm terrazzo tiles of their bathroom but questioned the placement of the handheld shower tap.

At Jacinta and Jordan’s Punchbowl home, Lara and Peter’s controversial backlit marble wall in the dining room was a hit with the judges, who said it created an exciting wow moment in the space.

They also praised the pair’s master bedroom, impressed with the neutral, elegant and warm tones. However, Rosie questioned the light pendant, saying she felt it undermined the ceiling detail.

Hannah and Jonny’s living room and ensuite received mixed praise from the judges. Simon said their living room felt cozy and comfortable, but he questioned the functionality of the area around the fireplace.

The judges were underwhelmed by the couple’s ensuite, saying it lacked punch despite its floor-to-ceiling tiling.

Sisters Taeler and Elle delivered the kitchen, butler’s pantry, laundry and powder room. While Simon praised the scale and opulence of the kitchen, Rosie was disappointed with the excessive use of stone, saying it felt like a quarry.

The duo’s butler’s pantry and laundry were both criticised for their lack of storage space.

About the Show

No dream is too big. Life-changing renovation series Dream Home premieres Sunday, 26 May.

Seven’s brand-new competition renovation series Dream Home is set to take the renovation genre to new heights as six pairs of everyday Aussies battle it out room by room, transforming tired suburban family homes into astonishing new dream homes.

Premiering 7.00pm Sunday, 26 May on Channel 7 and 7plus, Dream Home is hosted by Dr Chris Brown and will feature some of the biggest and best life-changing renovations Australia has ever seen.

“In real estate terms, my own skills are a renovator’s delight, in need of a serious makeover,”

– confesses Dr Chris.

“I’ve somehow lived through two renovations and seen both of them blow out on time and budget; mostly because of my questionable decisions.

“I genuinely feel like I can relate to what our couples are experiencing – possibly more than they’ll ever know.”

With grit and determination at the forefront, the teams will design and rebuild each other’s outdated and dilapidated homes.

Following renovations in each state, the top three placing couples will have their backyards completely made over with stunning gardens and outdoor living spaces.

All couples will receive the gift of a lifetime with their newly renovated homes. The winning couple will also receive a cash prize of $100,000 to help with their mortgage.

A trio of expert judges – Lana Taylor of Three Birds Renovations, top buyer’s agent Simon Cohen and award-winning interior designer Rosie Morley – will provide invaluable insight during the renovations before critiquing and scoring each new space in the stunning homes.

Produced by Endemol Shine Australia (A Banijay company), Dream Home will inspire and ignite Australia’s love of home renovation.
