Many seniors find that injury, balance issues, the need to use a wheelchair or just a general decline in energy make stairs tough (if not impossible) to manage. If getting up and down stairs isn’t as easy for you as it used to be, why not make life simpler?
Here are the reasons why you should get a residential elevator:
A residential elevator will make your home safer
Gone are the days that you risk a nasty tumble down the stairs. What’s more, residential elevators make your home safer for everyone. This includes children, who are prone to injure themselves playing on the stairs.
You’ll have an easier time moving things around
Residential elevators have a heavy load capacity. They’re great for moving groceries, bags of dry cleaning and other bulky or inconvenient items between floors. They can even be used to move furniture from one floor to another!
It’s a good investment
Adding a residential elevator can increase the market value of your home. Potential buyers are looking for homes where they can age in place, and a residential elevator lets them do just that.
An elevator takes up less space than a stairwell
Adding a residential elevator instead of a stairway can open up unexpected space and give your home a new configuration. You can use the extra space for storage or add some decorative furniture.
