How Can Mezzanine Floors Benefit your Business?

Does your business need extra space, but you don’t want the expense or hassle of moving premises? Then a versatile mezzanine floor is the perfect solution.

What is a Mezzanine Floor?

A mezzanine floor is a raised platform suspended between the floor and ceiling of a building. Highly useful for utilising otherwise wasted space, mezzanine floors are available in all shapes and sizes and can even be custom-made to suit even the strangest shaped buildings. Any business, no matter what industry they work in, who are looking for additional space but don’t want the hassle of moving premises, can benefit from a mezzanine floor. Here at First Floors, a leading supplier and installer of quality mezzanine floors, our team has worked with a variety of clients from a range of sectors including warehouses, factories, offices, hotels, airports and retail units.

The Uses of Mezzanine Floors

Mezzanine floors create valuable extra space by making the most of the volume of the building rather than just the floor surface, and this valuable area can be utilised for any number of uses including:

Mezzanine floors are perfect for storage

Many warehouses and distribution centres will often experience periods where demand for their goods is higher than usual, around Christmas time for instance, so having additional storage space is a real asset to ensure you can cater to the extra business. Mezzanine floors are ideal for storing goods thanks to their flat surface, pallet gates, safety rails and staircases.

The versatility of mezzanine floors is great for shops

Mezzanine floors are a particularly popular choice for retail units as they provide much needed display space without the need to move to larger, and more expensive, premises. As mezzanine floors are so versatile, shops are free to utilise the space in a way that ensures their customers an exceptional shopping experience. Some ideas include the creation of a display room for specific products, a viewing platform, a place where customers can try out products for themselves or even a café or restaurant.

Create functioning additional office space

In order to attract the best talent and impress clients, it’s important your office space is not only practical but is attractive too. Mezzanine floors create the perfect area for positioning extra desks, creating meeting rooms or break-out areas for your employees to relax. At First Floors, our mezzanine floors come in a range of finishes, including stunning staircases and railings to ensure you make the right impression. We also offer glass and acoustic partitioning which is perfect for making private meeting rooms on your mezzanine floor.

What’s really great about mezzanine floors is that you don’t have to stick to one specific use. As your business grows and changes, so can the purpose of your mezzanine floor. So, if you initially needed extra storage space but found that customers wanted to see the physical products before purchasing, you could transform your mezzanine floor into a wonderful showroom instead!
