Why Own a Home Elevator?

Accessibility

When you have a physical mobility challenge, the benefit of a home elevator may seem obvious. Public buildings offer similar assistance to ensure movement with ease; why should your private residence be any less convenient? A residential elevator allows for maximum mobility throughout the home, providing easy access to every floor.

Convenience and Safety

Until you own a home elevator, you cannot fully know the benefits. No more struggling to climb the stairs to reach your bedroom or having to navigate down a staircase in the middle of the night. A residential elevator is not only for the disabled or elderly, it can be a perfect addition to any multi-story home — especially those wishing for a convenient, safe and efficient way to move from floor to floor.

Home Elevator Value

When you have a plan in place to install a home elevator as a new home is being construction, installation is simply and efficiently integrated. It’s much easier to build upward than outward, and you can still achieve the desired square footage while saving valuable lot space. Not only will you save on the foundation size and roof area by “going up,” but these benefits can offset the cost of a home elevator installation.

Long-Term Planning

Will you be caring for an elderly relative in the future who may need assistance that an elevator can provide? Perhaps you have a disabled friend or relative who will need access to the home. You may even face physical limitations yourself and worry one day you might need such assistance—whatever the case, it’s best to be prepared.
Any eventuality can be considered an ideal notion for you to install a home elevator. The value as well as utility of the home will be increased, not to mention the safety of you or your loved ones.

Cost of a residential elevator

In the past, home theaters with surround sound systems were considered luxury items for new homes. The same can be said for residential elevators. Not only can an elevator in the home increase the home’s value, they’re actually expected as commonplace in higher-end home designs. Realtors have found that reselling a non-accessible home can be difficult, since more and more homebuyers are looking for a home that can last into retirement and beyond.

Dollars and cents

Many savvy home owners find that an elevator makes it more practical to build upward rather than outward, thereby reducing the overall span of the foundation and roof and the even greater expenses associated with each. Adding levels gives you more house for the money while adding charm and architectural appeal.

Making the Decision

Perhaps it’s not a question of what the cost of a residential elevator will be, but the cost of going without one. Not having an elevator could cost you or a relative’s mobility—in some cases, people with mobility challenges may lose the ability to stay in the home.
