Personal Elevator for New Homes

When building a double storey home, it is usually recommended that a master bedroom is included downstairs. This is not always practical. And if your living spaces and views are upstairs, a personal elevator is the easiest way to ensure that everyone can share all areas of the home.

Although many people consider a personal elevator as a luxury item, 20 years from now, most double storey homes will have a lift. In fact, if you are currently planning to build a new home, it is almost negligent not to include room for a lift in your plans. Apart from your changing needs as a home owner, with an aging population and the trend towards multi-generational homes, there are many people who will benefit being able to easily access both levels in your home using a personal elevator.

Having a personal elevator is an effective, forward thinking way to future-proof your home whilst living sustainably. Two storey homes are more energy efficient, and because they use less land, they also have less impact on the environment. A ResiLift adds capital value and also widens the market of potential buyers.

Why Choose the ResiLift for your new home?

The Australian made ResiLift is the most accessible and reliable domestic lift on the market. Its elegant design complements modern homes without breaking the bank.

The building works required for ResiLift are minor compared to other lifts as it was originally designed for retrofitting into domestic settings. That means it does not require the expensive building works associated with commercial style lifts and it looks more appropriate for a home.

The ResiLift is free standing so it does not require a lift well in anticipation of a domestic lift being installed. This means as a home owner, you can use the space as part of your active floor plan until you are ready to have a personal elevator installed.

As a developer, you can leave the cost of installing a domestic lift to the purchasers (should they chose to install one) but at the same time, open your market of potential buyers. It’s a win win.

However, if you definitely want to include a personal elevator in your new home, better results can be achieved when we have the opportunity to review your plans before they are finalized. We can provide additional technical information to designers and engineers during planning process and liaise closely with your builder during construction.

With five different models of ResiLift to choose from, the personal elevator you select will depend upon the available space and the flow of the floor plan. Because the ResiLift is manufactured in Australia we are also able to customize the lift to suit your new home.

ResiLift is almost maintenance free so that once installed, there are only minimal costs associated with operating or maintaining your personal elevator.

If you’re interested in our residential lifts in your new home, please contact us for more information so that you can get the best results for your installation. We find this is more likely to be achieved if we provide technical information direct to your designer and/or builders before the project progresses too far.
