Know your measurements Not every space suits a mezzanine, so you’ll need to measure carefully. “Generally, mezzanine levels are located either within the roof space or in a room with oversized head height,” James Hood says. “As a rule of thumb, you’ll need a minimum of 2.2m under the mezzanine platform, plus a floor thickness of 250mm, and a minimum of 1.6m to 1.8m to the top of the mezzanine itself,” he says.When it comes to regulations, Michael Schienke explains: “No Planning Permission is needed for a mezzanine, unless you intend to extend your property externally.” However, any work must adhere to Building Regulations. “It’s important to check with your designer, architect, engineer or local building control department to ensure the upper mezzanine level doesn’t fall outside of Building Regulations,” James says. “Usually, they’re classed as uninhabitable spaces and don’t have the same restrictions as a normal room.”

Take adviceGallery owners and online sites should know lots about the artists they sell, which will help you make your choice. They can also offer advice on which pieces might suit your space, so ask lots of questions. In addition, many art websites have quizzes and fun, psychological tests you can try to help identify your tastes and narrow down your search.

Make use of high ceilingsOne of the great benefits of grander Victorian dwellings is the ceiling height, which can be very lofty. Such proportions offer the perfect opportunity for building in a mezzanine level – a great architectural solution if you need to squeeze more rooms into an apartment. Go all out for a striking, sleek glass version for a modern statement amid the decorative plasterwork. TELL US…Have you updated your period living room?

Lara Sargent added this to Styling: 10 Ways With Circular Tables26 November 2014

Keep it compactSometimes, a bulky coffee table simply becomes a dumping ground for piles of magazines and other paraphernalia. Instead, plump for a neat, circular version that’s just big enough for the bare essentials (and that doesn’t mean your feet!).
