With more older people choosing to age in place rather than downsize, the home mobility market has been responding to demand by providing attractive, desirable, cost-effective and home-friendly mobility solutions with a major focus on balancing practicality with good looks.
Leading home elevator companies have been basing their blueprints in design research and development budgets into how a home elevator can work both efficiently as well as blending beautifully into the home environment. Gone are the days when they were clunky and industrial-looking, buyers researching a residential elevator, now, can expect to browse a range of different models, colors, and specifications and choose bespoke solutions.
One home elevator manufacturer, Lifton Home Elevators, produces two models called the LiftonDUO and the LiftonTRIO which come with a curved shaped capsule and a chic, matte grey finish. Both models are slimline and elegant with a modular design so they can be taken apart, transported and pieced back together in almost any location within the home.
The LiftonDUO carries two passengers and the LiftonTRIO is a beautiful wheelchair elevator with the option of thru-car for maximum convenience and maneuverability. The result – an outstanding home lift range which is admired and acclaimed and rapidly growing in demand in all US states.
Technically, this new breed of home elevator makes easy work of low ceilings, small spaces and even corners and many through-floor residential elevators are free standing and some even self-supporting, requiring no load bearing wall (which limits its options on position), no noisy machine room and no lift pit or shaft. Homeowners can reinvent the way they move around their homes and leave the overall design just as they like it – without the need to move pipework, electrics or embarking on any major building construction.
Unlike the outdated stairlift, a home elevator can glide between floors in under 30 seconds, and this travel experience is what really makes the modern home lift exceptional.
Many come with transparent surround, which allows natural light to flood through, leaving every room bright and airy and some have atmospheric downlighting making travel at night pleasant and soothing.
With clean lines, minimalistic controls and an emphasis on quality over quantity, modern home elevators add value to a property and are admired by friends and family. Bespoke finishes are available and residential elevators can be customized by choosing a different color lift car, rails and interior lining to suit any final project plans.
