Elevators are becoming a top redeeming feature. More luxury homeowners are installing custom home lifts.

As people live longer and plan to stay in place, elevators solve the nuisance of stairs. They offer safety for care giving, empowering the elderly, physically challenged, and young children with mobility that eliminates risk of fall and injury. Additionally, they ease the strain of carrying shopping and heavy loads. The vertical amenity assumes less living area and commands a premium in sale price.

Appealing design enhances the space in multistory residences.
