Thank you Kate for posting this brilliant and informative article. We especially love the guidance around the stairs: a really key and sometimes overlooked component of a mezzanine installation. The Parrot stairs work like a dream and it is worth noting that decorative elements or the materials used can be added to turn this feature into a spectacular interior statement! :)

I suspect some of these spaces are holiday lets - and that's ok. I'm saying that as I think having a bedroom space right above a cooker and kitchen would be a bit grim. All those kitchen smells in your bedroom would not be nice. For a holiday let, I can see the space makes sense.
