Construct a mezzanine floor in a loft
The lofts have the advantage of having a great height under the ceiling, allowing the construction of a mezzanine that will give more space and character to your home.
Why a mezzanine?
Construction for a professional or industrial site converted into residential lofts are made from a wide area without separation. Their height will usually create a mezzanine. In architecture, the mezzanine floor means an intermediate not occupying the entire surface of the part that overhangs. If you need more space, it is ideal to have an extra room. In addition, it will add character to your home by giving it a certain size to offset the fullness of the whole.
You can install the mezzanine above the kitchen if you have an open kitchen, or over the bathroom. You can use the space to make a child's room or your bedroom, or why not an office. Everything depends on your needs, keeping in mind that this space is not designed to carry materials or furniture too heavy or too big.
How to install a mezzanine floor in a loft?
The ideal height to install a mezzanine is at least 2.20 meters. Thus, you will not feel confined below the ceiling. On the set of the mezzanine, first floor, 1.90 m should be sufficient. If you intend to install a child's room, it takes at least 1 meter for a child to sit on his bed. The railing height varies under the ceiling (50 cm to 1 meter). A stairway will provide access to the mezzanine. If you need more space, opt for the step ladder. It's perfect, because while remaining practical, it only takes up little space. With an angle of about 75 ° for 2 meters up, the decline will be only 50 cm.
The scale should be reserved for child mezzanines on which they ride that to bed. If you have room, give free rein to your desires: spiral staircases, polished concrete suspended staircase, etc.. Do not block natural light sources when choosing the place where you design your loft so that space and one from below can benefit. Under the tray, you can use lights as simple and compact spots to avoid too much extra heat.
