Our curiosity box

Villa or twenty square metres apartment? Multi-generational or single? A place to sleep or a place to indulge in hobbies? We do research, visit thousands of homes, and co-create with our customers all to satisfy our curiosity about life at home and how we can make it better.

IKEA Life at Home Report


Each year we create the Life at Home Report, a study that helps us get a little bit closer to understanding what people need from their home. In the most recent report, we focused on the impact of the global pandemic on life at home.
