All you need to know about mezzanines
A mezzanine is one of the best choices you can make for relatively small rooms to gain a very large area to use. Of course, the rooms must be high enough to ensure maximum comfort. The mezzanine can be built in high apartments, attics or lofts. A lot depends on how you want to use it. It is even possible to build a bed on the mezzanine, which is a kind of variation on a bunk bed.
What roles can the mezzanine have in the apartment?
Depending on the size of the apartment and the height of the ceiling, it can be a solution to the problem of no free space. Generally, depending on the vision, it can act as a quiet and extremely intimate bedroom. Of course, nothing stands in the way of using the mezzanine to create a comfortable workplace (something like a mini office). Book fans can create a secluded place where they can put their bookshelves and a comfortable armchair to enjoy reading their favourite pieces in peace and quiet. Are you wondering what room is best for the mezzanine? A living room and smaller rooms are usually the best for this purpose. They make the room much warmer and more practical. You need to be aware that a larger area also means more possibilities for arranging available rooms. A very interesting option is to build a mezzanine in the child's room to make space for a bed. The surface that remains underneath can be successfully used to set up a desk and other furniture for the learning area.
Mezzanine construction: what do you need to remember?
A mezzanine is a very interesting way of practical use of the space you have. It is worth noting that it gives the room a unique character. However, there are several aspects that you have to consider in your planning so that it doesn't turn out to be one big flop.
A properly designed mezzanine should be located in a room with an optimal height of 4 to 5 meters. You must remember that the minimum height that is necessary for comfortable use of the lower part of the room is 2.2 meters. It's where the mezzanine should be placed - not lower. You must also remember the average thickness of the structure of 20cm. Generally, we can say "the higher the room, the more comfortable the mezzanine". Admit it - moving when you are even a bit stooped is not an interesting experience. NOTICE: Lower rooms can be ideal for creating a mezzanine meant typically for sleeping where you can put a bed or just a mattress to sleep on.
Another aspect you can't forget is the electrical installation. It is worth providing an additional socket at the bedside, whether it is for a bedside lamp or even for charging a phone. If you love to work for a while before sleep (already in bed), then a minimum height of 1.2 metres will be adequate.
It has a direct impact on the mezzanine layout and its size. It is difficult to ignore the shape of the room, where there must also be space for stairs. If there is not enough room, a possible remedy is to install a ladder. As usual, a lot depends on the possibilities and the idea for the room arrangement. NOTICE: If there is no room for normal stairs, a good choice are spiral stairs, which also take up relatively little space.
Materials used in the construction of the mezzanine
The mezzanine must be made of durable and resistant materials - usually wooden structures are used, but nothing stands in the way of using steel or even reinforced concrete. When choosing the material, take also into account the style of the room interior where you plan to place the mezzanine. Another issue is appropriately load-bearing construction. As you can see, it is not worth saving when choosing the right technology. If the mezzanine is planned to be a way of creating an "extra room" and intensively used, opt for reinforced concrete or steel. NOTICE: When choosing a wooden mezzanine, don't save if it's not necessary, because a reliable source is the basis of quality and its proper condition. The wood should have no knots and curves and class 2 at least, class 1 preferably. As for the kind, use oak, beech or ash.
Type of walls in the house
This is an aspect you have to check before you start designing your mezzanine because the type of walls translates into their load-bearing capacity. Generally, it should be mounted to the structural elements of the building because thin partition walls may turn out to be too weak and not able to bear much weight. It is sometimes worth consulting an expert who will assess their technical condition. Any cracks or defects are very important - they can get bigger when drilling holes for anchors and mezzanine ground beams.
Safety is the most important - also for the mezzanine
The mezzanine has at least one side from which a careless person could fall. Therefore, it is worth providing railings or interesting bannisters in advance. They ensure the basic safety in the daily use of such structures. They become even more important if the mezzanine is to be used by children, who are often even unaware of the danger. Another issue is the appropriate lighting and stairs, which can be steep due to limited space.
Interesting accessories and ideas
The space under the stairs is a place that can be successfully used to build a tasteful showcase or even a dressing room. However, it all depends on the design used and the amount of space.
How to make a mezzanine at home?
A mezzanine bed is the dream of many people who struggle with relatively small areas of their houses or flats. It is a designer dream come true. A properly designed mezzanine can be a real attraction of any room, giving it a unique touch. It is therefore not surprising that such constructions are enjoying increasing popularity. On the surface, the design of any mezzanine seems simple and undemanding, but even small design errors can lead to big problems. It is also worth ensuring professional installation, which after all determines the safety of use. A huge problem is also the wrong choice of materials, the inadequate strength of which may even be a threat to the life and health of the household (collapse of the whole structure is unfortunately very likely). NOTICE: If you don't have the appropriate technical knowledge, experience in construction - it is better to give up building a mezzanine on your own, because the effects can be poor if you make even seemingly small mistakes. The safety of you and your loved ones should always be a top priority. An experienced designer will know what material to use in a specific situation. The same applies to the mounting accessories, the strength of which should be suitable. No less important aspect is the loads that the supporting structure of the building will have to bear. If you plan to use wood to build your dream mezzanine - go to a sawmill or woodworking shop, where specialists will select the right quality materials for your construction. It is a very good step to order individual elements of the construction from them. TRIVIA: Fashionable lofts perfectly match the wooden ground beams, and the mezzanine floor can be successfully finished by laying a carpet on it. It is worth limiting the additional weight of the structure (if justified).
How to make a mezzanine? Mezzanine construction step by step
Constructing a small mezzanine which is a sleeping place is relatively simple and smooth. The basis is wood, the quality of which should be one of the most important aspects. In simple terms, it is a wooden platform mounted between two walls. In order to build a small bedroom, use square timber beams of the size and length appropriate to the width of the room. Of course, the boards will also be necessary for laying on beams - thus creating the mezzanine floor. If you're looking for safety and strength, use wooden angle struts placed at 45 degrees. The most important stages during the construction of the desired mezzanine:
Stage 1 Well-thought-out design
The initial stage must be the mezzanine design. The basis for this will be an accurate measurement and the location. An interesting step is to draw the design taking into account all the details (it will facilitate the work in the future). In case of any doubts, do not hesitate to consult a specialist. NOTICE: At this stage, you should also provide the electrical installation.
Stage 2 Purchase and production of mezzanine construction parts
If you already have a finished design, go to a wholesaler or sawmill to order suitable materials (e.g. wooden beams, load-bearing elements, metal construction, etc.). The accuracy of the sketch and precise dimensioning is very important so that specialists can cut the individual elements so that they fit perfectly into the room where they will be installed.
Stage 3 Preparing the holes for beams
Holes should be drilled (through) along the ground beams to place the beam to the wall in the next stage to mark the place for recesses. Generally, the basis for this stage is the drilling of all mounting holes. The holes for anchors mounted in the wall are drilled using the M16 or M12) bit. There are two types of anchors: expansion and chemical. Most often the first ones are used, which are designed in such a way that their tip spreads out sideways anchoring the whole structure in the wall (similarly as in the case of dowels). Drive them in as calmly and gently as possible, because driving them in too fast can lead to a crack in the wall, which you would definitely prefer to avoid. The second type is a chemical anchor, seated in with a special hard setting mass. Its strength is comparable to that of the more classical one - steel. NOTICE: When drilling, watch out for electric cables, including those from the new installation created especially for the mezzanine.
Stage 4 Fixing construction beams
The next stage is the proper installation of beams to the walls. When placing the ground beams to the previously prepared holes, start driving the screws in. Special washers are placed on them to protect wood against screws.
Stage 5 Beam finishing
At this point, it is necessary to ensure that the ground beams are aligned and the plaster is applied. Naturally, you can start painting it and all walls only after it is dry.
Stage 6 Mezzanine floor
Pre-prepared boards can be then screwed to the beams, thus forming the floor of the mezzanine. It is worth leaving tiny gaps between them because the working wood shrinks periodically and then increases its volume. Lack of gaps can lead to deformation and rapid warping of the floor. What is more, they have a positive effect on the ventilation of the entire structure.
Stage 7 Installation of ladder and safety devices
This is one of the final stages during which the stairs chosen at the design stage must be installed - they are crucial for proper use of the whole mezzanine. Then, provide the railings to reduce the risk of accidental falling out. You've just finished constructing a simple mezzanine - CONGRATULATIONS!
> Things to know <
The construction of a mezzanine, whether in a block of flats or a detached house, does not require any building permit. However, the structure itself can be very heavy, which often results in the need to obtain permission for its installation, e.g. from the management of a housing cooperative. So, if you want a mezzanine in your apartment, choose the most durable and lightweight materials possible. Ready-made mezzanines usually installed in children's rooms are very popular. They are based on modules that do not require problematic drilling and subsequent major room renovation.
Bed on mezzanine - lighting
Beds on mezzanines have become very fashionable and are installed in increasingly more apartments. It is worth noting that not only do they look great and give character to the apartments, but also make it possible to enlarge the usable area. It is particularly important in small flats (studios). However, do not forget about lighting, because a room with a mezzanine has a completely different layout, which translates into insufficient light from one chandelier usually installed under the ceiling. Strong light bulbs should definitely not be installed, as they will make it even more difficult to function properly on the mezzanine - without removing the darkening of the lower part. The wall lights and all sorts of directional lamps are an excellent choice. They will provide the right amount of light without glare. Consider the soft LED lighting for the upper and lower part of the mezzanine. An interesting solution may be a LED tape (with many tiny diodes, the colour of which can often be changed with a remote control). Another advantage of this type of lighting is its economy and durability because LEDs do not burn out so quickly and consume much less power. They, therefore, allow for comfortable and economical operation. There is also an ecological aspect to them - they do not contain mercury and other toxic substances found in "energy-saving bulbs".
Bed on mezzanine - for what rooms?
Beds placed on the mezzanine are a perfect choice for people with a relatively small bedroom. However, it is worth noting that such a structure should be at least 1.2 metres high. This is a generally accepted minimum for quite a comfortable use. However, if the rooms are up to 4 meters high, the mezzanine can successfully serve as a landing of sorts. This will have a positive impact on the usable space, as you can use the height for the mezzanine and the lower floor. It will be an ideal place to relax, work or study. To sum up, if the height of the room does not allow for the full 2.2 meters to the level of the mezzanine floor, opt for a mezzanine to sleep.
Mezzanine for children
The mezzanine in the children's room is usually a sleeping area, but raising the bed frees the space below it. You can successfully organize there a place for a desk, chair and a cupboard or a library. Much depends on the specific characteristics of the room, as well as the idea for the interior design. It is worth noting that the use of different colours will positively influence the perception of the room by the kid and will make it simply warmer. No one claims that the mezzanine has to be built in greyish colours. A small room does not have to mean there is no space - just opt for the mezzanine, which is a perfect arrangement of available space. Paradoxically, you can buy small ready constructions in a shop, but if you still decide to use a custom design, nothing stands in the way. There is a reason why they are being built in increasingly more apartments. They are an excellent way to organize everyday life, as well as a unique decoration of the apartment. You have to admit it, it's an extremely modern element that gives it a unique character.
Mezzanine in a block of flats/house/loft
Initially, you may think it's a stupid idea, after all, "there's no room for it." Another problem is the need to tear down walls when installing beams and crossbars, and not everyone is ready for such far-reaching sacrifices. Finally, it will take a while for the renovation team to restore the apartment to its usable condition. Possibly, you may have to move with your loved ones to your family or your favourite hotel. Paradoxically, building a mezzanine can be the perfect time for a holiday, as long as you have a trusted team or someone who can take care of the work. The mezzanine doesn't have to be a sleeping area, you might as well have a study, a library where you can read, and even a bathroom or sauna. After all, everything depends, as usual, on technical conditions, the idea, as well as financial possibilities. Depending on its area, it can serve as an additional room, which will definitely make your everyday life more attractive.
Home mezzanine - library
A mezzanine offers many possibilities, and one of them is the arrangement of the library. It will be a great idea if you and your close ones love to read books, but there is no room for them in the daily life full of rush. Moments spent in such a retreat will certainly be a source of pleasure and a moment of calm and stabilization after a very hard day full of stress and clash with everyday life. So if you have conditions for this, take the opportunity and feel in control of your life. Can you imagine the mezzanine at the end of an artistic staircase leading from the living room? It will certainly be a showcase of your home or apartment/loft. If you add slight haunches associated with pitched roofs - all this will have an amazing effect. Books read in such conditions will certainly give even more pleasure. Perhaps the ideal decoration style for such a library would be classical wooden furniture - not necessarily antiques, but if you like it, then why not?
Summary - why do we need mezzanines?
Would you like to have your secluded little corner, a separate space that will be inaccessible to those you don't want to let in? The mezzanine will be the best possible option. The living room where it would be placed makes it possible to create a landing of sorts from which you can easily see the whole room. This can bring all family members together. Open space may definitely lead to this. However, you must remember to have it done and designed by professionals. It will have to withstand considerable loads and show adequate durability. After all, this is important for safety as well as for the practical aspects. Beds at heights are unique constructions which, despite the need to invest a little more than the proverbial several pennies, are becoming increasingly popular. Paradoxically, not only in houses or large lofts but also in a typical block of flats. Of course, the amount of space available makes them usually places to sleep, but they still allow you to recover a large area that can be successfully used for other purposes. If you want to make yourself and your loved ones a gift that they won't forget - you know what to do!
