POV: You’re scrolling through TikTok watching impressive dance or listening to an insane storytime but you can’t help but focus on the cool room the person has.
You know the one, the pretty bedrooms that just seem to have immaculate vibes.
Well, here’s what I’ve noticed always feature in the best rooms I see on TikTok.
First off, it does not have to be all of these things. In fact, sometimes it might be overkill to add every single element to your own room. But if you’re feeling a bit meh about your space, maybe adding one or two of these elements will help give it a new lease of life.
You just knew this would be on the list, didn’t you? Well, there is a reason these lights have become such a staple in so many bedrooms all over the world. The colour changing ones can help create whatever vibe you’re looking for, whether it’s a fun purple or a cool blue. Many of them are remove operated too meaning you can sit back, relax and change them whenever you feel like without even getting up! Check out our post here on where to get them and how to display them.
Yep, string lights aren’t the only ones becoming hugely popular lately. We’re talking shaped LED lights in heart, clouds, quotes and just about everything else you can think of.
As well as this, Galaxy projects have got to be one of the biggest trends this year. The mood lights are perfect for relaxing after a super stressful day. Just try and stay mad and stressed out when you have one of these projecting to your ceiling. Chill vibes only. You can get them from Irish brands like Mood Illumination.

If you’re looking for something a little easier, that doesn’t require and hooks or nails, plants can add so much to a boring bedroom. You can opt for fake ones from places like IKEA if you feel like you won’t be able to keep a real one alive (hey it’s not easy!) or you can go for an easy-to-mind real plant or two. There are so many options to choose from, but adding a simple plant to a shelf or windowsill adds sophistication and colour to any space. Check out the best easy-to-mind plants here.
