Looking to build a new home? Consider a home lift. Installing a home lift as part of a new build comes with a range of benefits, from improving accessibility and comfort, maximising the square footage of your home without affecting convenience, and increasing the value of your property.
Why Consider A Home Elevator When Building A New Home
If you’re looking for additions that will increase the value of your new home, you can’t look past a home lift. In fact, not only will a home lift increase the value of your property, it will also help to ensure a quick sale at a respectable price when it comes time to sell.
When it comes time to sell, your home will appeal to a wider market of potential buyers including those with limited mobility, the elderly, as well as families with young children. This is because many potential home buyers will not consider multi-level homes without a home lift due to an inability, or just the added difficulty of having to navigate stairs on a daily basis. In addition to the added mobility a home lift provides, it also provides a unique selling point that will help your property stand out.
Appealing to a wider market of buyers will help to increase the chances of a quick sale at the desired price.
Improve Accessibility & Comfort
Another reason to consider installing a home lift when building a home is to improve accessibility and comfort. Many home builders want to plan and build a home that will accommodate their needs far into the future. If you want your new home to be a long term dwelling place for you and your family, you will need to plan ahead.
Installing a home lift ensures that your home will remain accessible to all, regardless of age or mobility level. This means that you will not have to relocate to a single storey home as you age or retire for greater accessibility.
Additionally, a home lift can improve the comfort and convenience of your home on a day to day basis, even if you have no issues walking up and down the stairs each day. This is because a lift can also be used to transport items between levels, from groceries and laundry, to prams and even furniture. Not only will this save you time and effort, it will also reduce the risk of injury while carrying large or heavy items up or down the stairs.
Maximise Small Land Space
Installing a home lift as part of your new build can also help to maximise your use of a small landscape. With land sizes continuing to get smaller and smaller while costs increase, it’s more important than ever to make the most of the space you have.
Building a multi-level home with a home lift will allow you to have a large and spacious home with the convenience and accessibility of a single storey home. Additionally, many multi storey homes will be designed with kitchen and living areas on the top floor to make the most of the surrounding views, making a home lift a convenient addition, regardless of mobility level.
Not Ready To Make The Investment? Plan Ahead
Whether you don’t think now is the right time to make the investment or your budget won’t allow for a home lift, plan ahead with a pre-planned hoistway. This is often done in the form of stacked closets or the stacking of a large pantry or small office space on each floor to create a natural hoistway for future installation of a lift.
Adding a pre-planned hoistway into the design of your new home will ensure a quick and affordable lift installation in the future. This is because minimal building works will be needed when installing the lift, saving time and money.
