As mezzanines allow to add additional square footage, these structures are becoming increasingly popular in modern homes.
Mezzanines are intermediate floors, which allow to relatively easily add additional square footage.
As contemporary homes are usually short on space, mezzanine structures become a popular home addition.
Not to mention that apart from extra space, they definitely bring in personality, charm, and visual appeal.
Furthermore, especially for interiors with soaring ceilings, mezzanines allow to use the available vertical space.
Are you ready to think vertical?
1. Some Help from the Heavens!
In urban homes, using every possible inch of space is an absolute must. In addition to some amazing decor and space-saving solutions, which help immensely, using the available vertical space is the next logical step.

Although the popular perception is that mezzanine designs are extravagant, any loft space with a visual contact with the lower level and a shared ceiling, covers the mezzanine blueprint!
Whether to incorporate a home library, a guest bedroom, an artistic studio, or any private space, mezzanines can be a functional, eye-grabbing decor solution.

2. Touch of Traditional Charm
Mezzanines work well with open floor plans.
As homes with high ceilings usually have an open floor plan, a mezzanine level kitchen can be tucked away underneath the intermediate level.
This decor solution adds visual interest and an undeniable sense of coziness and warmth.

2. Creating a Visual Impact
Focus on the staircase because the visual impact an exquisite mezzanine floor brings is as much in the staircase that leads to it as in the projection of the level itself.
When planning the staircase, consider using different textures and materials that bring in contrast and enhance the setting.
Any kind of staircase that adds interest and visual appeal can transform your living space from an ordinary one to a picture-perfect interior that will leave your guests speechless.
