✅ Aesthetic Room FAQ

☑ 1. What is an “aesthetic” room?

In short, an aesthetic room is a room that is decorated in a style or theme that is beautiful to YOU (ie, aesthetically-pleasing) that also makes you FEEL good. There are many aesthetic decorating styles such as VSCO girl aesthetic rooms, Boho, Shabby Chic, Farmhouse, Industrial, etc. TikTok has made the aesthetic room very popular this year, but that aesthetic style is more of a decorating style that is all about surrounding yourself with the things YOU love – and adding LED lights.

There’s a video inside the #3 FAQ question that shows a before and after of redecorating a room in this new aesthetic style.

☑ 2. How do I make my room aesthetic TikTok style?

A TikTok style aesthetic bedroom has light-colored walls covered with pictures of your favorite people and LED lights all around your room that creates that cool aesthetic glow to bring it all together.

☑ 3. How can I make my bedroom aesthetic without buying anything?

Making your room aesthetic without spending money is very possible – hang lots of pictures of your favorite people, hang a really cool “boho” style blanket on the wall, use lots of LED lights and or string lights… Think decorating items like throw pillows in different colors, styles and textures, a big white fluffy comforter with a unique throw blanket. In short, an aesthetic room glows with everything about YOU.
