How to Update the Look of Your Lift
Lifts are a highly efficient way of getting us from A to B, whether that’s in an office building, block of flats or fancy hotel. Many companies spend a great deal of time and money ensuring that their reception or foyer area is stylish and welcoming, but the lift can often be an afterthought. A lift is often one of the first interactions a potential customer or client will have with your building or business, so it’s worth making a good impression.
A run down, shabby lift with broken lights or buttons won’t make the best impact, so if you want to know how to update the look of your lift, read on.
A lift doesn’t have to be a dull, grey box, so consider updating your interiors with some stylish touches. Cosmetic updates might include new lift buttons, a luxurious mirror or even a patterned wall. You can switch up the design of the doors too, with adhesive stickers that can be removed or changed whenever you like.
Don’t forget the floor, especially if there are shabby scratched patches or missing tiles. Again, you can be creative; try a geometric patterned design or mosaic tiles to inject some style and interest. Some companies have gone one step further with light up disco tiles or luxurious marble to really make an impact.
Upgrade your lighting
Missing lights or broken, flickering lighting won’t cut it, so make sure your lift lighting is up to scratch. Elevators are small spaces, so LED bulbs work best as they don’t expel much heat. They’re also much longer lasting and more energy efficient than traditional incandescent bulbs. Choose the right tone of lighting too; anything too bluish white will be harsh on the eyes, but too yellow and your lift will look dingy. Opt for a comfortable midpoint for the most welcoming, relaxing space.
