Home elevators are often considered either a luxury or a medical necessity. But more and more homeowners are beginning to install home elevators for other reasons. And the best part — the cost is nothing compared to years ago. With the affordability of home elevators now, you’ll have several reasons to consider adding one to your home. Here are our top three reasons to install a home elevator.
- Increases Your Property Value. While property value isn’t something that every homeowner initially thinks of, it should be. Everyone wants their home to sell for more than what they bought it for, but making the strides to get there takes smart decisions and planning. Adding an elevator to your home can add to the property value by 10% or more. It’s one addition that will pay off in the end. Potential buyers are more attracted to homes with elevators because they add accessibility and design value to the house.
- Accessibility. If you own a two-story home and would like to live there into old age, an elevator is a wonderful addition that you’ll be thankful for in the future. Most people will not be able to utilize stairs for the entirety of their lives. We are here to make your lives easier, and you should always think ahead. Elderly people, injured people, and all others who are unable to use stairs will be able to move floor to floor without assistance when you add an elevator into your home.
- Safety. Let’s be honest. How many people do you know that have injured themselves tripping up or down the stairs, if you haven’t yourself? More than 1 million stair-related injuries have landed Americans in the emergency room, and home elevators can decrease that number. After
installing a home elevator, you won’t be worried about young children or more frail adults slipping or tripping down the stairs. An additional concern that disappears when you get rid of stairs and strictly use an elevator is the chance of a small child or pet falling over the rails.
