One thing is clear about TikTok: it has a grip on all things trendy. The app’s users influence everything from clothing and skin care to which books we read, so why would our décor choices escape its reach? As we recently scrolled through an infinite feed of videos (for professional research purposes, naturally), quite a few lighting choices came up, signaling that it’s time to brighten up our space.
If you’re on the market for the trendiest lights, you’ll probably want to look at the showpiece lamps beloved by TikTokers or the string lights that are making a comeback, in no small part thanks to the app. Whether you’re aspiring for TikTok fame or just feeling like your space needs a refresh, we have you covered with our guide to TikTok’s favorite lights.
While a bit more subtle than the strip LED lights that took the app by storm back in 2020, these gorgeous antique bulbs from Light Bulbs Unlimited bring a bohemian flair to any room. Plus, they’ll fit right in with TikTok’s more rustic and artsy crowd.
We can’t talk about TikTok lights without bringing up the ring light—a.k.a., one of the most essential things in a TikToker’s tool kit, besides their phone. Pick up heyday’s ring light and tripod to set yourself up for TikTok success.
Caught the cottagecore bug? Then you’ve probably seen the red-and-white mushrooms that pepper the aesthetic on TikTok. Join in on the trend with this mushroom lamp from Spencer’s that will liven up your room with seven different light color options.
With retro styles taking over TikTok fashion trends, it’s no surprise that it has also spilled into our décor choices. Indulge your retro-loving, inner ’90s kid with this lava lamp from Spencer’s that will entrance you with its hot pink globs.
The sunset projector lamp originally went viral in 2021, but if you didn’t get the memo back then, the second-best time to get one is now. Pick up this sunset lamp from Urban Outfitters to add ambient light to your bedroom and decorate your blank walls.
Salt lamps may be a spiritual TikTok trend, but they’re also a way to help you sleep more soundly. The soft red glow will help you unwind and relax, so grab one from Light Bulbs Unlimited, and set it up on your bedside table next to your crystal collection.
Neon signs are a TikTok-favorite way of showing off your interests, your brand, or even your name. Hang up this neon sign of the Houston skyline by NeonLightSigns to rep your Houston pride—or if that’s not quite your vibe, browse the rest of this Etsy shop’s vast collection.
Fairy lights always come back in style, and now is no different. Grab this set of copper firefly string lights from Urban Outfitters and pair it with some hanging plastic vines to achieve the infamous artsy TikTok décor.
While this pair of MacKenzie Childs dog lamps may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of “TikTok Lights,” they match perfectly with the maximalist trend sweeping the fashion and décor side of the app right now. Quirky and eccentric, they’ll add a touch of uniqueness to any room.
