Ikea Is Now Selling Tiny Homes, And I Think I Might Need One
Why are tiny homes so fascinating? I love scrolling through photos of tiny homes – they’re so cute, cozy, and expertly designed. I don’t know if I could fully commit to tiny home living, but with the way they’re being built these days, I just might. And now, Ikea is selling a tiny home that is truly all things Ikea – cleverly designed, reasonably priced, and extremely stylish!
According to Lonely Planet, Ikea has designed their first tiny home through the Ikea Tiny Home Project. They partnered with tiny home company Escape, who designed a customized version of their preexisting Vista Boho XL model. The tiny home is extremely eco-friendly and features solar panels, composting toilets, and on-demand heated water – all powered by the tiny home.
In addition to being extremely stylish, the tiny home was also made responsibly and with the environment in mind. The interior features sustainably grown, white-washed pine paneling, and the kitchen cupboards were made from recycled bottle tops. There is cleverly designed storage throughout the entire tiny home, making the space functional in addition to gorgeous.
So, what do one of these stylish and functional tiny homes cost? They start at $47,550, which is actually pretty reasonable when you consider the costs of owning a traditional home nowadays. You can check out Escape’s Ikea model here – happy tiny home daydreaming, everyone!
