Just like the ones you find at shopping centers or at your a hospital, elevators are a luxury that can also be installed in your home.
Elevators for home use, in general, can make trips of climbing stairs or moving heavy, bulky items much easier. This functionality is especially noticeable in residential settings where groceries, decorating, and everyday chores are a daily occurrence. Improving your mobility is one of the leading benefits of utilizing home elevators. Of course, those who require greater physical effort to move about their multi-level home will benefit from an elevator the most, simply eliminating much of the average legwork of traversing your home or conveying objects is a benefit any homeowner can enjoy.
Few people realize that a home elevator takes up much less space than standard stairwells. This can open up the house, providing owners with more space. Homeowners that choose to invest in a residential elevator can easily increase the useable square footage of their home, which ultimately helps to increase future resale value. You could also use such an elevator to carry groceries, luggage, and even your children without worrying about a tiring trek up the stairs.

Installing an elevator will undoubtedly add an air of sophistication and style to your home. The sheer variety of designs means that there is a look to suit the taste of every homeowner and home décor. There are modern pneumatic tubes, and sleek cubes with stainless steel frames and polished glass walls, even more classical looks with wood veneer and brushed nickel accents.

These elevators have long since been viewed as a symbol of luxury, and that holds true today; but with the reduced cost of parts and installation, more people have gained access to home elevators.

A vertical platform lift – also known as a wheelchair platform lift or porch lift – was specifically designed as a means to facilitate wheelchair users from getting from one level to another. The platform allows the user to easily roll themselves on before ascending/descending.

A vertical platform lift is most akin to an elevator by moving between floors vertically. However unlike an elevator, there is no shaft or enclosure, which provides an additional layer of safety by protecting the user from the edge. This is why you are probably most familiar with seeing these types of lifts installed outside of a home. Porch lifts are a great solution when transfering someone just a few feet.

When installing a vertical platform lift, some structural modifications to your home will most likely occur to get it to fit.
