Footage revealing a couple’s “secret room” in their home, which can only be accessed by a ladder, has gone viral since it was shared on social media.
In a TikTok video, Austin, Texas user thewynhome explained that they have a “secret room” in their home.

According to insurance comparison website The Zebra, the median home price in the United States in 2022 is $348,079. Hawaii is listed as the most expensive state to buy a home while West Virginia is the cheapest.
The video begins with a room above a door near the front of the house that requires a ladder to access.
The caption shared in the video read: “Our house has this ‘secret room’ that we wanted to check out. So on Black Friday we bought a ladder from HD (Home Depot).
“I overcame my fear of climbing a ladder and just kept climbing. Finally I’m up here with a small, cozy room [a] beautiful view.
While the space was empty, there was plenty of room upstairs to create a unique area for guests.
The TikTok user admitted she was a bit hesitant about going down the ladder, adding, “I was so scared of the descent part.”
Since posting on Sunday November 27th, the clip has been viewed more than 7 million times and received around 632,700 likes.
The overwhelming majority of those who posted comments under the video wrote that the space could be a great place to store Christmas decorations or presents, while others thought it would be a cozy space to share with friends.

Audrey Lousy commented, “Create a cozy hideaway for your friends to watch Netflix and chill.”
But TikTok user Ganjoo noted the room was billed as a “secret” room, writing, “This secret room isn’t secret, it’s literally for everyone to see.”

There have been other instances of homes going viral on TikTok due to their unique vibes.
Cleveland’s Alex Quandt spent $5,000 to transform her home into something straight out of the ’70s.
The house is mainly filled with different shades of brown, orange, yellow and green as well as warm tones and bold floral prints.
She told you before news week: “I’ve always felt a connection to the warm tones of the 1970s and the fact that the interior of the period didn’t take itself too seriously. It’s cozy and layered and feels lived in.”
