Have you ever considered having a mezzanine floor? It could be both a practical and beautiful option, as today’s guest post highlights.
Flooring is, in large part, an aesthetic enterprise as much as a practical one. You want the snazziest patterns, finest designs and the most in-vogue material, the kind of carpet that could please Oscar Wilde or some other decadent aesthete.
Finding the balance between beauty and effective design can be difficult. Some people coo in delight at their favourite swirly pattern etched into floorboards, ignoring the actual quality of the wood – and wasting their money in the process.
Some flooring solutions can, however, strike the perfect balance between looking good and remaining eminently practical.
Those with a little bit of imagination can even find flooring options that will give them a little bit more space.
A whole new level
All this moves us neatly onto the subject of mezzanine floors. There’s every chance you already know what a mezzanine floor is but, for those not in the know, it’s essentially a platform supported by a few steel girders. In short, it’s an entire extra floor for your home.
Mezzanines aren’t ideal for every house. To avoid a claustrophobic living space, you’ll need a large room with a high ceiling if you want to install a mezzanine. What’s more, you’ll need ample space to facilitate the pillars that will support your latest flooring venture.
Purchasing a new floor in your home might sound like a messy job, but it’s a cinch when you choose the right provider. For example, Invicta provide a top-quality service and come with years of experience under their belt.
Get some style
Once you’ve found the right supplier, you’ll have to find a few ways to turn that your flooring from a mass of hulking metal into a liveable space that you can enjoy as much as the rest of your home.
For some, the rustic style works best, which ultimately means less work to reach your preferred interior design style. Plenty of people love the idea of having a living room setup that looks like it doubles as a skate park. If you’re one of them, you’re in luck!
If not, you’ll have a little bit of extra work ahead of you. The personality of your mezzanine floor can be defined by the staircase which leads up to it. Want a winding staircase reminiscent of a medieval castle? Or how about beautiful mahogany stairs that look as though they belong in a Miami beachhouse? The choice is yours.
Once your mezzanine flooring is sorted, you’ll be able to play around with it until you love the look you have. So you can find a perfect floor with a fantastic design – and strike the perfect balance.
