Parents keep out!
Fun, functional and adaptable, a child's room must be able to grow with its occupant. It must also help the child to thrive, offering them, in that one room, all the comfort they need to sleep, play, work and receive their friends.
Head in the clouds
Every child dreams of a tree house. If they cannot build one in a tree, they turn a mezzanine into a castle in the sky, where they sleep safely in their own nest up above, while they make the cabin below their own. Espace Loggia offers parents, with their feet firmly on the ground, a wide choice of models. The Modulable mezzanine is the most adaptable of them all. Over the years, it can be adjusted for height and width until it becomes the first adult item of furniture.
It can be supplemented with Brick© units. For the youngest children, the blocks can form a safety staircase, which doubles as storage space. For older children who prefer climbing a ladder, the blocks become bedside tables, chests of drawers, sofa beds, or even desk drawers. Thus, starting with a few items of furniture, one can plan a completely modular bedroom, which will transform itself to suit the child's needs.
Claiming one's territory
When the family grows faster than its home, bedrooms must be shared. The most obvious way is to transform a mezzanine bed into bunk beds, with Brick© units below, forming the base of a new toy-chest bed. A layout of several mezzanines can also be used to define boundaries that best support the personality of each child. In an installation for twins, Espace Loggia provided two symmetrical mezzanines fitted with desks and cupboards. However, for two sisters, our advisers preferred to go for an asymmetrical design. The older sister had a high mezzanine with a large desk integrated below it. The younger sister had a low-level mezzanine supplemented with shelving and a writing desk.
Dream up a fun dormitory
For either a holiday home, or a grandparents' house, where cousins often visit, it is a good idea to fit out a room as a dormitory. Espace Loggia offers several options for fitting it out, e.g. aligning Young Urban mezzanine beds, or using a modulable mezzanine with a Bench Pull-out Bed. This sofa that transforms as required into a single bed, a double bed or twin beds, is an ideal solution when one needs to adapt the dormitory to a varying number of occupants. It usefully completes the layout of an office or television room, enabling it to be transformed from time to time into a guestroom.
A choice of pastel colours
Hollyhock, pink as candy floss, mallard blue, celadon green and Tyrian purple, are some of the colours on Espace Loggia's chart that are most suitable for young children. Modern pastel colours set the tone for a gentle, comforting decor.
