WATCH: Property Brothers' Jonathan Scott Answers Your Burning Design Questions and Shares His Controversial Stance on TVs in the Bedroom
Some design quandaries can only be decided by the hindsight of history . . . or the presence of a Property Brother.
When Jonathan Scott, one half of HGTV’s real estate-and-renovation power duo, stopped by the PEOPLE studios, we put him to the test with some decorating questions for the ages in a game of Interior Design Would You Rather.
Some answers come easy to the decorating pro: Carpet vs. hardwood is no contest — he favors the latter. Master bathroom vs. walk-in closet is also an easy call for a guy who only owns eight pairs of shoes.
But some showdowns have Scott, 38, second guessing himself. When it comes to having a TV in the bedroom, the contractor has a divisive stance: “I do watch TV [in my bedroom],” he admits, adding amateur decorators should do as he says and not as he does. “You shouldn’t design around the TV. That should just be a hidden little extra,” he says.

When asked to choose between a queen or king size mattress, Scott throws in his own third choice. “King mattress. In fact, Cali king,” says the spokesperson for mattress brand Stearns and Foster. “When you’re six-foot-five, you need to have as much space you can possibly have.”
