When floor space is limited but ceilings are high, a mezzanine level is a perfect way to extend usable living space. Since headroom is often restricted in mezzanine rooms, it’s sensible to give your platform a purpose that doesn’t require a generous ceiling height. This limitation is not a problem in a room where you plan to lie down most of the time, like a bedroom. Furthermore, by tucking a sleep space up away from an open plan living space, more privacy is attained. In this collection of 40 mezzanine bedrooms, we’ll look at concepts of all sizes and aesthetics, along with tips to help you design yours.
