While some homeowners opt for more utilitarian-style home elevators, we often build elevators that are so beautiful they become the focal point of the home. When you work with A+ Elevators & Lifts, you can completely customize your home elevator with glass, mirrors, wood paneling, bronze accents and other fabulous features.
Additionally, you can choose to locate your elevator anywhere in your Reno home — you don’t have to put it near a stairway. Our clients love the flexibility that residential elevators provide.
Residential Elevators Are a Safe Choice
Although wheelchair lifts for stairs are complete safe when they are properly installed, some wheelchair users dislike their open construction and prefer the enclosed space of an elevator. Elevators are easy to access and operate and they move between floors quickly.
Residential elevators also have a significantly higher weight limit than wheelchair lifts, so a caregiver, friend or family member can ride in the elevator along with the wheelchair user. This is one of the reasons elevators increase home values so much — they’re useful for everyone. You can even use your elevator to move heavy items from one floor to another.
Small Home Elevators Increase Independence
Regardless of age or medical condition, no one wants to have to rely on others, especially for something you must do every day such as going up or down stairs. A home elevator helps promote independence by allowing wheelchair users to access other floors in their home without assistance, whenever they wish. Greater independence improves self-reliance and self-esteem, and that makes wheelchair users happier.
Additionally, if they are elders or dealing with a medical condition that’s progressing, a residential elevator can allow them to stay safely at home for longer. Most people prefer to remain in the familiar surroundings of their homes for as long as possible.
