There comes a time in every 20-something’s life when they start to care about home decor. I remember the moment clearly for me; I loved my roommates, but I was tired of always having to ask other people’s permission for my design choices. But I also never felt like I had enough money to do what I really wanted with my space.
Nowadays, there are so many design tools and idea hubs that make it easy to make your space all your own, no matter how young you are or how small your budget is. One such place is TikTok, which makes sense since we’re digesting so much content from our devices these days.
Recently, home insurance company GoCompare analyzed trends and data and came out with a list of the top home design trends on TikTok right now, many of which are perfect for the bedroom.
Here are a few of the design trends popular on TikTok these days and how you can incorporate them into your sleep space.
The hashtag #HomeOffice on TikTok currently has over four billion views, which makes it one of the most influential hashtags on the app, according to GoCompare. Since COVID-19 has changed the way people approach their workspaces, design tips about how to create home offices in small spaces and how to create multi-functional spaces are all the rage.
One of the worst things about having your home office in your bedroom is the clutter created by excess wires. TikTok-ers have come up with a solution by incorporating wooden wire boxes that keep everything hidden. If you have a clean, clear office space in your bedroom, you’re less likely to get overwhelmed by the clutter and be more motivated to work there. Plus you’ll sleep better too. (Here’s how to make it work when your bedroom doubles as your office.)
Upgrade your sleep space with Saatva's mid-century modern bedroom furniture
This came in as the third most-searched home decor trend on TikTok (behind home gyms). Mid-century modern is characterized by clean lines, changes in elevation, and unique shapes. It’s a little funky but still draws in earth tones that keep rooms feeling warm.
To incorporate this vibe into the bedroom, your best bet is to look for mid-century modern pieces like dressers, nightstands, or vanities (depending on how much space you have). TikTok-ers are noting they’ve found success finding these items at affordable prices at thrift stores and on Facebook Marketplace.

Wellness at home
Wellness can pretty much mean anything, as long as it makes you feel good. On TikTok, wellness at home usually means fun recipes, skin care tips, or ways to incorporate crystals into your routine. It can even be as simple as creating a functional corner of your bedroom or purifying the air in your space. The sky’s the limit. (Try these wellness design tips in your bedroom for better sleep.)
Japandi design is a fusion between Scandinavian minimalism and Japanese design. In Japandi design, your furniture is closer to the earth, and your dressers may not have legs or stands. It’s also about functional yet artful storage pieces and clean lines in your linens and rugs. (See more Japandi design tips here.)
Bauhaus design trends came in fifth place in the most-searched decor trends on TikTok. Bauhaus is a mix of graphic design, industrial design, and geometric shapes in bold, primary colors. For the bedroom, that could mean getting a statement piece of art to hang above your bed or a bright, geometric design on your comforter.

This bedroom trend follows closely behind Bauhaus with more than 14 million views. Painting your bedroom green is a great way to make pink furniture and sheets stand out without having to do much else besides swipe on a coat of paint. Green is also known to be a soothing color, which makes it a perfect hue for your bedtime routine.
Another popular interior design trend right now is based on the Scandinavian concept of friluftsliv, or spending time outdoors. Here, learn how to bring friluftsliv into your bedroom.
