Do I Have Space for a Lift in My Home?

Home Elevators are now becoming standard for new builds and residential renovation projects. The increasing desire to grow old in your own home, combined with skyrocketing real estate prices, has resulted in the need to makes homes fully accessible to all stages of life. Residential Lifts are the perfect remedy for this, but how much space do they require?


Do I Have Space For a Lift in My Home?

Spacial requirements will differ depending on the type of lift you require. A Passenger Elevator for a person who uses a wheelchair will be different from those who can rely on a Stair Lift. In saying this, if you are worried your home does not have enough space for an internal lift, don’t fret – Elevators can also be added externally to your home.

Stair Lifts are much more compact than passenger lifts, and can easily be fitted onto the side of your staircase. These lifts typically do not require lots of room nor adjustments to your home, making them quick and easy to install.
