Cibes Lift - 5 benefits of having a home lift installed
The benefits of having a home lift installed are vast and numerous. For those who are perhaps looking to add a layer of luxury to their home or to make their house just a little easier to get around, an elegant home lift installation truly is the way to go. If opting for the home lift route is something that you are considering, whether for your own home or that of a loved one, this guide is for you. Below we have listed five major benefits of having a home lift installed, perhaps highlighting a few things you hadn’t thought of, hopefully encouraging you to make the change.
What are the benefits of having a home lift installed?
One incredible benefit of adding a domestic lift to your home is that they can increase the level of accessibility of the building. For those who may struggle with stairs or moving between floors due to limited mobility (something with impacts one half of adults 65 or older), opting for a home lift could be a very elegant solution. No longer will you have to worry about needing help up the stairs or dealing with cumbersome stairlifts, you can travel easily between floors in your personal elevator! For those who are living with elderly relatives, the increased level of accessibility will be a winning feature.
Installing a home lift can also improve the safety of your home. Stairs can be a dangerous business, leading to trips and falls, bumps and scrapes, especially for children and those of older age. If you are keen on increasing safety precautions around the house, perhaps with small children around or an elderly parent, installing a lift can negate the problem staircases cause and provide a safe method of travel between floors. You can even restrict access to certain floors with a lift passcode, making your home more secure and protected against intruders.
A sense of luxury
One of the very best reasons to have a lift installed at your home is because of the sense of luxury they contribute. Nothing screams style, elegance, and luxury quite like your very own lift opening up into your beautiful lounge or into the master bedroom. How many people do you know who have a lift at home? So, why not stand out from the crowd and bring something truly unique to your home? If you are feeling tired or just too lazy to haul yourself upstairs, you have your own personal lift waiting for you. What’s more luxurious than that?

Future-proofing your home
Right now, you might be thinking that a home lift isn’t really necessary but by choosing to install one at this time, you can make sure that your home is ready for the future. Situations and circumstances change with time, especially the older we get. So why not prepare for the future? By adding a lift to your home today, you won’t have to worry about not being able to use your stairs as you age. Why wait until you are struggling to get up the stairs? Get everything in place now, enjoy the luxury and style that home lifts bring, and have the peace of mind that comes with knowing your future is taken care of.
Increased resale value
Another fantastic benefit of installing a home lift that must be highlighted is that they can add real resale value to your home. If you think that at some point in the future you might like to sell your home (even if that’s a long way off), it’s always a good idea to make an improvement to your house so it fetches a bigger price. Having a unique feature like a home lift will certainly accomplish this, helping your house stand out from the crowd when it goes on the marketplace. Style and versatility are two big factors when people look to purchase a home and if yours has a domestic lift installed, those two boxes will be checked in a serious way.

Expert Interior Design Tips for Integrating a Home Lift
At Cibes, we feel that interior design is such an important aspect to consider when integrating a home lift into your décor and a little helping hand is always useful.
Styling your interior can incur a lot of research; one thing that always helps is expert advice, to help you find your style for every space and budget.
We spoke to interior design expert, Peter Turner, Managing Director at Cocoon & Bauer and Megan Geddis, Marketing Executive at Cibes, to share their best interior design tips around installing a Cibes home lift.
Design tips from Cocoon & Bauer
Positioning a lift
The position of the entrance to the lift is key, along with its location within the house. The entrance should be clear of any obstacles and feel like a natural progression from the floor into the lift – instead of forcing the user to awkwardly navigate themselves to the opening.
Its location will depend on the type of property you own, but it makes sense to keep this close to the staircase, so that it is integrated into family life and not completely removed or seem alien.
Choosing a colour scheme
Choosing colours for your home should always be based on natural light, size of the room/space and the style you’re wanting to achieve. Monochrome shades with a dash of colour can give a very modern, clean look, whereas warm, natural colours can appear relaxing and more welcoming. The trick is to consider everything, including the colour of the lift, rather than concentrating on one area.
This means the full scheme will appear ‘complete’ and make sure the lift doesn’t feel like a foreign object within the room. For that modern, monochrome look, Gothic Graphite Black will create a striking impression in the room, or Azurite 4 being the bold pop of colour.
For something simpler, you could try Oriental Oyster White which has a beautiful warm colour that would blend into most homes. However, our favourite must be January 4 and Amethyst 2 from the Mineral Series. These colours are bold yet subdued and would create a focal point in any room.
If you can’t match the flooring in the lift with that you already have in your home, then something which contrasts or adds something ‘extra’ to your space will work brilliantly. Black Seagrass will add sophistication in any setting, whereas Material Quartz Stone will appear like natural tiles in the lift and work in most schemes.
If you choose your own flooring, it’s important to consider one that is hard wearing and easy to maintain, much like you would for the rest of your home. There are many flooring options and you can even use your own, making your lift the perfect continuation of the space. All you need to consider is the additional weight a heavier flooring choice may make, however there are many solutions for this in our experience.
