The Property Brothers Answer Fans’ Burning Questions on ‘The Scott Seat’
Ever wanted to ask Drew and Jonathan Scott a question? Some lucky fans got the chance as the little red couch hits Stamford, Conn.
You know Drew and Jonathan Scott from Property Brothers, but how well do you really know them? Fans in Stamford, Conn., got to sit down on The Scott Seat for a no holds-barred Q&A session.
In this episode, the brothers reveal one of the biggest issues they face in home renos, give some insight into how people get on the show (hint: cookies are always a good bribe for the brothers), and get personal about once fighting over a girl — but only after a round of "lie-dentical twins." Check out all the fun from the tiny red couch:

Great Room: After
Jonathan and Drew transformed the stuffy space into a stylish and inviting great room. They swapped the dated green carpet with warm hardwood floors, which they accentuated with a funky patterned rug. They brightened up the interior by splashing white paint on the paneled walls, creating a visual break between the wood floors and exposed wood ceiling.
Breaking Out of the Box
By knocking down the great room wall and raising the floor to be level with the rest of the house, the Scott brothers successfully made the room bright and airy. While the lack of wall takes out the obvious barriers between the great room and kitchen, the strategically-placed seating and vibrant rug create a clear separation in living areas.
Dining Room: After
The Scott brothers made the dining room even more illuminated and spacious by knocking out the walls between the kitchen and dining rooms. They created a cohesive room-to-room flow by replacing the light floors with a richer hardwood. To balance the new floors and keep their design elements consistent, the brothers brought in light beige chairs with patterns and details that coordinate with those in the great room.
Room With a View
The new living room layout gives the Perler’s a place to lounge in a plush seating area while enjoying lovely views through the windows in the front and sides of their home. Just like in the dining room, here, pass-through bookshelves create a sleek barrier between rooms, without obstructing the open floor plan.
After the renovation, the living room in Craig and Laurel Perler's new home in Armonk, New York, is a comfortable seating area with beautiful views to the trees in front of the house, and open access to the adjacent kitchen and dining room. Pillows and accessories in pastel colors provide subtle visual accents around the room, as seen on Property Brothers. (Detail)
Bonus Room: Before
Fortunately, the house came with yet another bonus room. But unfortunately, the previous owners left it totally unfinished, with a cracked slab as the main focal point. The bonus room seemed pretty hopeless to the homeowners, so they were pretty skeptical when Jonathan and Drew mentioned converting the space into a playroom.
