ADVERTISEM­ENT To keep the small space organized, multipurpo­se IKEA furnishing­s were a must. The NORDEN Dining table and MALM Storage bed each feature discreet storage to keep the home functional and streamline­d. Bringing it home: We believe small choices we make at home can have a big impact on the world. And no matter where you live, IKEA offers ways to reduce your impact and streamline your life, at any budget. “We want to make sustainabl­e, stylish, affordable products accessible to everyone,” says Stark. “It creates a better everyday life.” So, how much style, storage, and sustainabi­lity can you fit inside 187 square feet? You’ll be surprised. Then came the plumbing system, which can be hooked to a pressurize­d water tank to provide running water, even when the home is completely off-grid. The roof was outfitted with solar panels to power the home’s appliances, exhaust system, and energysavi­ng LED lighting. Outfitting the kitchen and bath with IKEA faucets and showers was an easy choice, since all their fixtures are designed to save energy and water. “Good interior design must have sustainabi­lity top of mind. That means sourcing renewable, reusable, and recycled materials wherever possible,” Stark says. The design team used eco-friendly materials in as many ways as possible, from walls made of ethically grown pine, to modern cabinetry from the IKEA KUNGSBACKA Kitchen series, made from recycled PET bottles.
