A luxury home elevator delivers all the mobility, functionality, and safety you expect, but with extra flair…a flair that makes a statement about who you are and how you want your family to live and your guests to be received.
Luxury home elevators elevate the practical with impeccable choices of materials and finishes. Your custom home elevator complements the aesthetic and architecture of your home. Luxury finishes and design elements enhance the experience of riding in the elevator as well as taking a negative of having a large piece of machinery in your home and flip it to a positive of your elevator adding value to your home, of adding that “wow” factor.
Luxury Residential Elevator Placement
It is vital to place your home elevator where it is easily accessible and near frequently visited areas. But another factor about elevator placement is how your elevator can enhance your home’s design. It can add beauty and intrigue to a circular staircase or oversized foyer.
Or perhaps the technology you choose requires a shaft and must be located in existing closets aligned between floors or a new hoistway constructed outside the current floor plan of the home. Even if you decide to conceal your elevator behind a door, you can add custom wainscoting, designer wallpaper, fashionable tiles, and other design choices that elevate the elevator experience and offer a great first impression when the elevator entry door is opened.

Home Elevator Customization
Various car sizes and door opening configurations (allowing entrance and exit on the same side, opposite side, or a 90-degree angle from the lower landing) are vital decisions that our elevator experts can guide you through to make the best decisions for your home. But, keep in mind that location and configuration can be enhanced with designer touches.
Most visible elements of a residential elevator can be customized. You may choose to create an elevator that blends into your home’s décor or to use the installation of your luxury home elevator to create an unexpected and fabulous focal point. Ways to personalize your home elevator with opulent choices include:
- Elevator car interior panels and ceiling
- Fixtures and handrails
- Doors and gates
- Control panels.
Each of the brands of home elevators we install offer off-the-shelf customization choices including luxury upgrades of colors and finishes. But for traditional elevators with interior panels, you have many more options for customizing than with vacuum elevators. In traditional elevators you have a wide choice of customization from wood to tile to mirror to laminates. But, as you can see from the photos of the vacuum elevators for the right homeowner and home, their glass and metal finishes are stunning. The choice is yours.
Another are you can use to add your special touch is the shaft. For traditional elevators,the shafts can be constructed to enable visibility outside the hoistway while traveling in the elevator. This requires additional design and pre-installation construction, but making a home elevator more luxurious is possible whether your style is traditional, transitional, modern, or even futuristic.
