Decorating a Mezzanine Apartment to Maximise Space

Apartments with unique layouts are becoming more common, especially in big cities and historic buildings where architects must work with what’s on offer, which is typically vertical rather than horizontal space. The creation of mezzanine apartments can help to reduce urban sprawl whilst still offering additional space for those who live in them.

There’s no doubt that an apartment with a nontraditional layout can be more of a challenge to plan and decorate due to the limitations of the space but a mezzanine apartment offers many possibilities too, and there are plenty of great ways to style and decorate a mezzanine apartment to maximise on the space available.

Utilise Vertical Space

In a mezzanine apartment, horizontal space is limited, so you have to think like an architect would and maximise the vertical space instead. Consider adding wall-mounted storage units to keep belongings organised without sacrificing floor space. Tall bookcases and kitchen cabinets can also work well in mezzanine apartments.

When it comes to décor, keep floors and surfaces as clear as possible to create an open, uncluttered feel. This doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate warm, homely touches into your mezzanine apartment. Think hanging plants rather than freestanding, and instead of using storage baskets, why not drape blankets or throws over a wooden ladder?

Strategic Furniture Placement

Choose furniture that serves dual purposes to optimise functionality. For example, a sofa bed or a coffee table with storage compartments. With space at such a premium, the last thing you want in your mezzanine apartment is unnecessary clutter, so make sure that every piece of furniture is working extra hard for its place in your home.

Modular furniture can also work well in small spaces as it can be adapted over time to meet changing needs. Over-bed storage cupboards can also be custom-built to blend seamlessly with the room’s design, providing ample storage without sacrificing floor space.

Use of Mirrors

Mirrors have long been recognised as a powerful tool in making a space feel larger and more open than it is. Placing mirrors opposite windows allows them to reflect natural light, opening up the space and casting light into dim corners of the room. Mirrored furniture, such as wardrobes or mirrored décor can also create the illusion of space while adding style and class.

Natural Light

Embracing natural light can create a more open and airy atmosphere in your mezzanine apartment. Sheer curtains or blinds will allow sunlight to filter through while maintaining privacy. Avoid curtains in heavy materials or dark colours that may block out light and feel oppressive. Try to keep window sills relatively clear to maximise the light coming through.
