There are many different reasons to install a home lift in your property. Most commonly, home owners will install domestic lifts in order to improve accessibility, however many people will often choose a home lift installation to increase the value and luxury of their property. Whatever your reason, there are 5 key factors to consider when choosing the perfect home lift installation to suit your requirements. These include:
Purpose & Use
The most important factor to consider when choosing a home lift is purpose. Why are you installing a home lift in the first place? Is it to improve accessibility, or to increase the value of your property? Being clear on what you require the home lift for, will ensure you choose the best option possible to suit your requirements. For example, a stair lift or step lift may be the best choice for improving mobility around the house, whilst a through floor lift or platform lift will be better suited to larger buildings and for aesthetic purposes.
Space & Location
How much space do you have to accommodate a lift and where will it go? Do you want it to be discreet and hidden away or a feature point in the main hallway? These are all key questions to consider when choosing the right fit. Some domestic lifts are discreet and compact, making them easy to fit into small spaces, whilst others are more generous in size and better suited to larger properties. Having a clear idea of the space you have available, as well as how you want the installation to impact visually, will help you to weigh up your options realistically.
Budget & Running Costs
When making any renovations to your house, budget is always a top priority, and so there’s no surprises that this is another crucial consideration to make when talking about home lift installation. Be clear on your budget so that you know what options are within your price range, however you also want to think about the long term picture. You will of course want to ensure that the initial cost of installing the home lift is within your budget, however you also need to think about the long term running costs.
