Living space “Home of tomorrow” IKEA promotes sustainable development

The future of home is here – and it’s very green. IKEA has created a model living space in Poland where people can learn how to live in their own home with full respect for nature, ensuring that sustainable development stays the center of attention in home decor.

The living space – “House of Tomorrow” – aims to ensure a positive impact on the planet by introducing environmentally friendly solutions. Research done by IKEA suggests that by 2050, 70 percent of the world’s population will live in cities. This is not good news when it comes to climate change. The concept shows visitors how to tackle it all, from composting food waste to making vegetarian meals with home-grown vegetables.

The space itself is housed in a 120-year-old abandoned building in Szczecin, Poland. It is mainly centered around a soilless garden where water saving methods are used to grow vegetables, fruits, herbs and even edible mushrooms. Each room has its own purpose, including one where household appliances can be repaired and modified (with the help of experienced carpenters and designers) to give it a second life. Another area called the “Planning Space” is where people can ask IKEA employees how to make their kitchen (and the whole house) more sustainable.

Anyone can visit the Home of Tomorrow, where measures have been put in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. You can follow the concept Instagram page and check him out website learn more.
