If your business is rapidly expanding and you’re making plans for the future you might want to consider installing a mezzanine floor. Creating an additional dimension to your property is an interesting option but with any project it needs to be thought through carefully with regards to cost and the level of inconvenience involved.
Adopt a positive attitude
Before you start getting stressed about anything that could go wrong take a deep breath and reflect on the fact that many business owners would kill to be in your shoes right now. Your dilemma is a good one and means that you’ve done well. Any type of expansion points to a great product/service and plenty of satisfied customers.
How a mezzanine floor works
Basically a mezzanine is a smaller floor which sits between two main floors of a building. It’s usually accessed via stairs and has a relatively low ceiling. Although it resembles a balcony, you’ll be surprised at how much extra space it provides.
Most mezzanines can be installed fairly quickly and although there’s a level of upheaval, it’s nothing compared to the inconvenience of moving premises. Specialist firms can make this transition far easier than you could imagine. Naturally the last thing you want to do as a busy, popular business is to close your doors for any length of time, but in some cases, businesses are able to trade at a reduced level, while construction is taking place. Once your new floor is in place, just imagine how good it will look and many new products you’ll be able to tempt your customers with.
The appeal of a mezzanine floor lies in its versatility. Not only can it be used as a storage space but it can be open to your customers as an additional retail area. You could even extend your particular product and service range once your floor is in place. Perhaps you need more office space, in which case, you could use part or all of your mezzanine for that purpose. There really is no limit to its uses.
By adding a sleek new steel mezzanine floor it also portrays to your customers and competitors that business is good and this very image says far more than could ever be put into words.
Cheaper than moving
A mezzanine costs less than it would to relocate to larger premises. It also means you can stay put and that customers can continue to buy your products or use your services without having to travel to a different location. Think about the alternative of your competitors jumping on the band wagon and taking a slice of the action were you to relocate and your customers didn’t follow you. Once you’ve got over the small inconvenience of your mezzanine being installed, it’s business as usual!
