The kitchen's white, open cabinets showcase pops of bright colors inside. The Houseguests will have an opportunity to slumber in the Kicks Bedroom, featuring a wall of sneakers; the Sonic Flow Room, which is decorated with various headphones, a boom box and headphone shaped beds; or relax in the bird themed bedroom. Other highlights from this season's BIG BROTHER house include the Arcade Room; a Zen garden-inspired backyard; an "every city" skyline along the upstairs wall; and an oversized chess game.
