By utilising your mezzanine space for a bedroom, you are able to free up the lower floor to create a larger living or eating space, maybe even one open plan living area. A mezzanine bedroom always feels especially cosy. It often only contains a bed, bedside table and a lamp making it a space purely for sleeping.
By creating a work space or office on a mezzanine, you separate your living space from your working space. This means you can work freely whist still keeping an eye on things in your home. Some people choose to build their office space underneath the mezzanine, separated from the rest of the space by sliding doors. This would give you the freedom to interact with other members of the house hold but close the doors when necessary.
Having a bathroom on a mezzanine can create a luxurious feel. Glass partitions can be used so that most of the space below can be seen from the bathroom. Moving your bathroom to a mezzanine can free up floor space below so you can create an open living space that flows from one room to the next.
You could just simply use a mezzanine to separate different areas. For example, having a reading area on the second floor with chairs and bookshelves that overlooks the larger living space. Once again this means that you are separated from the main living area but you can still keep an eye on what’s going on below, this is a great option for people with children.
