What makes a home?

The IKEA Life at Home Report explores the life at home of people all over the world. The aim of the report is to increase awareness of and spark conversation about what better everyday living actually means. To explore how people feel about their homes, we conducted a quantitative survey resulting in some 12,000 responses from Berlin, London, Madrid, Moscow, Mumbai, New York, Paris, Shanghai, Stockholm, Sydney, Toronto and Zurich. The report shows that among many factors, people primarily define their homes as where they have their most important relationships. People who are satisfied with their relationships at home are also happier with their living situation and feel better overall.
