When you’ve installed or are thinking of installing a home elevator, personalizing the new amenity is a way of enshrining it as a part of your living space.
If you’re like most people, you’ve put a lot of thought, energy and money into the look and feel of your home. You have a strong aesthetic and it’s reflected in the way you’ve decorated your space. Your elevator is part of your home, so finishing it to extend your aesthetic vision is important.
This post shares some tips to maximize the feel of your small home elevator, meshing it with other design elements in your residence to create something truly special.
People choose to install home elevators for different reasons. A towering home invites an elevator for ease of movement. When guests come, they can be taken to their room, luggage in tow, when you have a centrally-located elevator. Packing a big Costco buy? That’s not a problem when you can convey everything to the kitchen with your fabulous home elevator.
Sometimes, mobility’s the reason a home elevator has been installed. In that case, your elevator may be positioned unobtrusively. But that’s not true for everyone. Not all feel the need to tuck their elevator away in a closet.
Regardless of the reason for the elevator, where it is in your home determines its aesthetic finish. A central elevator in the foyer draws more attention, so finishes are important. But even if it’s tucked away somewhere, you still need riding in it to be a pleasant and visually appealing experience.
Your elevator. Your style.
If you’re planning on a wood-panel interior for your elevator, finding the right type of wood is a fun project. The first thing you need to determine is the availability of your chosen wood and the type of paneling you’ll use.
The door is another key design element. Some elevators are hidden behind standard household doors. Others have accordion doors. Some are glass.
There are also hand railings and light fixtures to consider. Choosing these to express your home’s overall aesthetic completes your vision for a small elevator that blends into your overall design vision and makes riding in it even more satisfying.
