A PRACTICAL YET LUXURIOUS DESIGN STATEMENT
A lift is an ultimate statement, a lifestyle choice and useful addition. This luxury not only boosts the price of a home but also makes it more attractive, creating a one-of-a-kind focal point.
Lifts provide a fantastic practical purpose, for many, continuing to live in the same house as they age is important, as is the ease of moving groceries between floors and it’s not just people-moving lifts that play their role. As the trend grows for new townhouses with several floors, service lifts (or dumbwaiters) are regaining popularity due to their smallness and installation ease.
THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF HOME LIFTS
Properties come in all shapes and sizes — and so do lifts. In a new dwelling, a lift can be part of an architect’s plans. In an existing home, there is a need to place the lift around the current house layout. The choices are endless and broadly fall into these categories:
- Lifts: up to five people can travel between floors with a choice of door options, finishes and configurations.
- Through-floor lifts: up to two people travel between the ground and first floor, best suited to smaller spaces.
- Service lifts and dumbwaiters: transporting food, groceries and goods between floors, ideal for properties with three or more floors, or where the kitchen, garage or dining area are on different levels.
