Elevators serve valuable aesthetic and practical functions within homes and commercial buildings. With some baby boomers choosing stay at home instead of moving to a retirement facility and the availability of space-efficient designs, elevators could become in-demand features for buildings and residences of all sizes.
Choosing the right design can enhance the look of your property, significantly improve accessibility, and possibly even raise the value of your property. So with the wide range of designs to choose from, what should you look for? We list some of the top design trends – both practical and aesthetic – to consider.
Your elevator or lift could be the first thing visitors see when they arrive in your building, so it can allow you to set the right first impression while making a high-impact style statement at a glance. Your elevator’s design could harmonise with, enhance and support your building decor.
Beyond the aesthetics, elevator design can offer functionality in terms of convenience, utility, and security. Well-designed elevators can provide height mobility and enable you to move between levels with ease. A modern elevator can also be far more space-efficient than expected, especially when compared to stair lifts. Security, such as limiting access, is another practical advantage of modern elevators.
Elevator design matters because it directly impacts how your property looks as well as the functionality of your elevator. Modern elevator design trends encompass both functional and decorative elements. Functional design trends include privacy, security, and lights and music.
Security gates are another way to restrict access to different levels of your building.
Lighting can set the design tone for your elevator whilst fulfilling a vital functional purpose: ensuring visibility.
Style features are also important to users and building owners, and they set your elevator and building interiors apart from others.
A bold foliage print makes a modern statement inspired by nature.
Gold accents can be integrated for a sophisticated, timeless appeal.
While elevators might traditionally have been viewed as symbols of luxury, they could quickly become essential features in homes and buildings, given the wide variety of designs availa ble and affordability of materials. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your commercial building or make simple improvements to your residence, these design trends highlight the range of options you can choose from to find the perfect elevator design for you.
