Bosch showcases the best in Laundry on The Block
Sarah & Jason
Dramatic and glamorous are words that come to mind when looking at the laundry presented by Jason and Sarah. The black cabinetry paired with the mirrored splashblack and marble look benchtop combine to create a luxury aesthetic that exceeds the typical idea of what a laundry could look like. The brass accents on the door handle add a contrasting element that only serves to heighten the sophistication of the space. The intricate patterns of the floor tiles work to finish this laundry off nicely, while introducing another textural layer to the palette.
The judges were wowed as they walked into the laundry presented by Jason & Sarah. Shaynna was impressed with the amount of storage and Darren thought that the tiles were beautiful. Neale went on to say “I don’t think I’ve ever used the word ‘sexy’ to describe a laundry before” but he definitely applied it to this space.
Jason and Sarah have selected a Bosch Series 4 washing machine and a Bosch Series 6 condenser dryer for this laundry. The Bosch Series 4 automatic washing machine is an efficient and durable model making it a reliable choice for families. The washing machine features EcoSilence Drive™ which provides supremely energy-efficient and quiet operation with an especially long life and a 10-year motor warranty. Featuring Bosch ActiveWater™ technology, the washing machine has an automatic load adjustment that recognizes the load condition in three steps to ensure that only the required amount of electricity and water is used for that load. This model also has a 24 hour Start Delay to offer more flexibility. It allows the required end time for the washing machine program to be preset, that way the washing will be finished exactly when you want.
The dryer in Jason and Sarah’s laundry is the Bosch Series 6 condenser dryer, which is a speedy model that provides a convenient and quick way of drying a small load of laundry. The AntiVibration™ design provides increased stability and reduces vibration to minimise the noise levels. This model features AllergyPlus, which helps those with sensitive skin by removing allergens during the drying process. The Sensitive Drying System in the Bosch Series 6 condenser dryer allows the laundry to be dried by mild, warm air coming from all sides and gently mixed by the curving soft carriers, instead of lying flat on the drum structure. The fabric-friendly drum design ensures soft and fluffy laundry for the whole family.
Hannah & Clint
The laundry presented by Hannah and Clint features a soft palette of whites and greys with accents of black and chrome. While the colour palette was relatively neutral, they have added an elegance to space through the use of the small round mosaic tiles on the splashback and the stone bench top. These details add a textural appeal that makes this laundry an inviting space. With plenty of functionality in the way of cupboard storage and a hanging rail, doing laundry in this room would be a breeze.
As the judges walked into Hannah & Clint’s laundry, Darren said the space was “surprisingly fantastic” and “really beautiful”. Darren went on to admire the vast amounts of storage space and Shaynna liked the fact that the appliances were hidden behind cabinetry doors.

The Bosch Series 8 ActiveAir heat pump condenser dryer is another appliance suited for active family life. Boasting a 7 star energy rating, it is also one of the fastest dryers in the Bosch heat pump range.
