The Spare Room


This Friday on Win a Home - The Design Edition, the excitement continues as the competing design teams are tasked with decorating their spare rooms. Contestants can turn the room into anything they like, provided it is not another bedroom. The clock is ticking as they’ve got just three days, and a budget of R35 000, to complete their task.

Tempers flare among the competitors over how to decorate the empty spaces as the onus is on the designers to create an impressive room that will result in their houses appreciating in value.

Adding to the contestant’s pressure this week is their individual challenge. Each team’s winner of the solo challenge is safe from elimination. However, this means that the individual winner of the loosing team gets to choose which team member to eliminate.

The team’s mentors, Durban-based interior design experts Grant Webster, Ntokozo Ntuli and Schane Anderson, have their hands full with trying to guide the contestants towards design excellence. Tensions increase in this episode as the designers and mentors have issues over time as well as which furniture, paint and household items are best to buy.

This week's guest judge is Durbanite Clifton Smithers, the Director of Union 3 Design Solutions. He is joined by construction expert Charles Thompson and Chris Tyson, head of Tyson Properties to make up the judging panel.

Which team will win? Who will be safe from elimination? And who is going to go home?

Be sure to tune in to watch this cut-throat episode full of all the twists, drama, conflict and suspense!
