What can commercial mezzanine be used for?

Increasing storage space

Commercial mezzanines can be used to increase a building’s usable floor space without having to expand the building itself. This is particularly useful for businesses that require additional storage or workspace but are limited by the size of their existing building.

Additional workspace

By using the existing vertical space in a building, a mezzanine can create additional floor space without the need for a costly expansion or relocation. This can be particularly beneficial for businesses that require extra space for storage, production, or offices.

Retail space

Retailers can use commercial mezzanine floors to showcase products, increase floor space, and create an immersive shopping experience for customers. By utilising the height of the space, retailers can create two levels of retail space, allowing them to display more merchandise and provide additional shopping options for customers.


In addition to retail spaces, you can use the mezzanine as a showroom to display your products to your customers. This can help you optimise your floor space and create a more attractive and professional-looking retail space. Showrooms are important for businesses that sell products because they allow customers to see and interact with the products before making a purchase.

What are the main advantages of commercial mezzanine flooring?


The flexibility of mezzanine in commercial settings allows for more customisation to fit a variety of needs, including storage, office space, or additional seating. The size, shape, and layout of the mezzanine can be tailored to the available space and the business requirements. There are also options for commercial real estate mezzanine lenders to make the floors even more cost-effective.

No planning permission

In most cases, there is no need for planning permission to install mezzanine floors. The UK’s Town and Country Planning Act 1990 indicates there is no planning permission required to carry out maintenance alterations or improvements on a building of work that only affects the interior. As long as the mezzanine floor does not materially alter or affect the external appearance of the building.
