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.
