When you live in a house, you often want to make changes. But you don’t always have the courage to embark on major renovations. But there are now new interior design solutions that are less expensive and often less restrictive. The mezzanine net is one of them. Feelnets, your creator of made-to-measure living nets, explains why.
Mezzanine / loft netting: an extra room without (almost) no work
Starting work on a living space when you are already in place is something you think twice about. Noise, dust and frequent delays are all obstacles to building an extra room in your home.
But rather than breaking or building walls or laying extra floors, why not use the space already in your home? An unused hallway, a storage room, an attic or simply an empty space surrounded by four walls can be used as a mezzanine. And if you want to create a truly special space, custom-made living netting is the ideal solution. Especially since you can (almost) assemble it yourself.
Installing a solid frame for your mezzanine net
The only real requirement for installing a mezzanine net indoors (as well as outdoors) is to have a solid framework. In fact, we have devoted an article to : In which frame can you install a custom made net for your home? In that article we explained that custom-made netting cannot be fixed in plasterboard or other non-stable walls.
However, you can install a hammock net :
- in a wooden frame (the simplest and most used solution)
- in concrete walls
- in IPNs
- with the passage of a chimney or stove pipe
- in hollow brick
- on walls with BA13 and insulation
- between 3 walls and the passage of a staircase
- between two windows
Feelnets recommends that you call in the professionals for the installation of your framework for your loft netting. Thanks to an experienced technical team, we can assist you in all stages of your project. Our partners all over France are at your disposal to install your net.
Easy installation of your house net
It’s perfectly possible to install a custom-made hanging net on your own, although of course it’s easier for two people to do it. But you should know that 96% of Feelnets customers install their own net. Why shouldn’t you?
You will need to know how to place fixings all the way round, at 150mm intervals. We offer a range of customised net fixings and can advise on the installation of any frame you choose.
You will then need to :
- Centre the net in the gap to be filled by attaching it at the corners and in the middle.
- Tie the corners with the right knots.
- Once the corners are hooked, start lacing the sides with the tension rope.
- Check that you have obtained the ideal tension for your hammock net.
Mezzanine netting: an economical solution for creating an extra room
As well as being much less of a hassle than a major extra room, custom-made loft netting is also much less expensive. To help you get an idea, Feelnets has given you some price ideas, even though custom-made netting often requires a quote.
