Be creative with your stairsIn a room with a mezzanine sleeping space like this one, the stairs could be the ideal spot for some storage. Here, each tier has been fitted with a drawer, while the longer area at the side has become a wardrobe. There are numerous ways you could design an area like this, so it’s important to hire a good joiner who can run through all the options with you.More staircase storage tips to steal

Maximise a staircaseA staircase is another element that’s fairly costly and intrusive to retrofit, so take advantage of fitting a new one. There are many ways you can make a feature of your stairs, or add in some handy storage. Every inch of the staircase in this mezzanine has been put to use with the creation of bespoke drawers. Alternatively, you could consider a floating glass staircase in a contemporary space, or fit lighting in the treads or risers.

Slot drawers into the side of your staircaseA very good space-saving trick is to use the area under a staircase – including the steps themselves – as storage. This might not work in a traditional interior, or if you already have storage under the stairs, but if you’re building in a new staircase, or steps between levels in an open-plan space, consider this savvy idea. Here, a bespoke solution has been built around a chest of drawers, with added drawers slotted together. As these steps are going up to a mezzanine, they probably don’t count as stairs under Building Regulations, which explains the lack of handrail. (For most stairs, you will need a rail on at least one side.)
