IKEA Enters the Tiny House Market

Ikea is now in the business of making tiny houses through their Ikea Tiny Home Project and the tiny house industry will never be the same.

Ikea is designing a 187-square-foot abode on a flatbed trailer.The Swedish furniture company partnered with media company Vox Creative & Wisconsin-based tiny home & RV builder Escape to design the tiny dwellings.

The Ikea Tiny Home Project has solar panels, a composting toilet and a heated water supply powered by the trailer.

Unlike the "assemble-it-yourself" furniture that the Swedish company is known for, these tiny homes come pre-built.

Both the queen-sized bed & couch have built-in storage spaces underneath, for instance. Similarly, the kitchen table works double duty when it is collapsed into a desk, or if you need to free up space, it can be folded down and stored away entirely.

The Ikea tiny home takes it a step further with solar panels, composting toilets, light bulbs that use approximately 85 percent less energy, & faucets that are designed to reduce water consumption by nearly half when compared to their traditional counterparts.

Escape is currently accepting orders for their Ikea Boho XL model, which starts at $47,500, with other extras for customization available.
