The Property Brothers Reveal a Secret Feature We’ll All Wish Our Homes Had

“Property Brothers” stars Drew and Jonathan Scott are down to their final challenges in this season of “Brother vs. Brother,” which means it’s crunch time in this Los Angeles renovation battle.

In the latest episode, “The Mystery Judge,” the brothers fix up their guest bedrooms and bathrooms in hopes of impressing the guest judge, who eventually reveals himself to be Orlando Soria from “Build Me Up.”

Jonathan has set aside $400,000 for his bedrooms and bathrooms, while Drew has earmarked $440,000. Though these are big chunks of change, they may not be enough for the high-end designs these brothers are eyeing.


Read on to see how these brothers make their guest suites feel special, and steal some fun ideas you might want to try in your own homes, too.

In the kitchen and dining room challenge earlier this season, Drew refurbished a beautiful, hand-painted barrel ceiling. It was a big hit, so he decides to add another barrel ceiling to the hallway outside the guest bedrooms.

To finish the look, he adds a painted mural on the ceiling and walls. The mural is subtle and classic with intricate floral details. It’s perfect for this old Hollywood home.

When Soria sees the feature, he loves it.

“This would make me want to buy the house,” he says.
