More and more, people are installing elevators in residential settings due to their functional value and luxury appeal. Although mobility issues are a major reason people want elevators in their homes, there are other good reasons to get a home elevator as well. Let’s take a look at some of these reasons:

Improve Your Safety 

Home elevators are a great solution if you or a loved one face mobility challenges. Elevators provide a safer and easier way to travel between floors of a home than stairs do. Even if you don’t have mobility concerns, you still might like an elevator to avoid risks such as tripping and falling on stairs, especially in the dark.

If you’re attached to your home but mobility challenges arise, it might seem necessary to move to a one-story home. Installing an elevator allows residents to remain in the homes they love, sparing them the hassles and expenses of moving as well.

Maximize Your Convenience 

In addition to safety, home elevators offer incredible convenience if you have heavy items to transport. Tired of dragging a vacuum cleaner up and down stairs or hauling boxes from an attic or basement when it’s time to decorate for holidays? An elevator greatly reduces the challenge of transporting goods up and down the house.

If you’re building a new home or considering a major remodeling, you might want to think about installing an elevator instead of stairs. Elevators take up less space than staircases do, and that means more living space. You can even install elevators on the exterior of a home to free up even more interior space.

Increase Your Property Value

By increasing safety, convenience, style, and usable space, home elevators can add to a home’s resale value and make the property more attractive to buyers. An elevator designed to complement a home’s interior is attractive to a lot of people, and they’ll also appreciate the idea of having the work already done.

Add Style and Luxury

Home elevators come in so many styles now that they’re a great way to add a customized, elegant look to a home. Companies like Genesis make it easy to design your home elevator and see it before construction ever begins in your home.
