Ikea Is Renting Out A Tiny Home In Tokyo For $1.20 A Month — Here’s How They Made It Into A Livable Space
Of course it comes fully furnished.
Ikea Japan wants to show you that you only need small spaces to — get your mind out of the gutter — flaunt the space-saving solutions available at its stores.
To do that, the Swedish furniture giant is renting out a 10sqm (107 sqft) tiny home in Shinjuku for just 99 yen (S$1.20) a month. Yes, the monthly rent for this miniscule apartment in the heart of Tokyo is cheaper than a cup of bubble tea.
Only one unit is available, and the apartment will be rented out until Jan 15, 2023. The rent does not cover utilities bills. Applications are closing today (Dec 3), but there’s no stopping you from taking a closer look at this tiny apartment.
The tiny home is of course fully furnished with Ikea furniture and accessories, illustrating Ikea’s incredible space-saving solutions, which presumably is the whole point of this campaign.
Here's what the space looked like before.
