Pushing All the Right Buttons: Discover Endless Options for Customizing Your Home Elevator

Long gone are the days when home elevators all fit the same generic “one-size-fits-all, take-it-or-leave-it” model. With a stunning array of amazing customization options, along with expert craftsmanship and advanced technological sophistication, the sky’s truly the limit when it comes to personalizing a home elevator to your exact specifications and tastes in home design and décor.

Do you desire a “rock ‘n’ roll elevator” featuring a collage of your all-time favorite rock bands such as the Beatles and Rolling Stones, or a movie-themed elevator containing an embedded scene from a classic film like Star Wars or Mary Poppins? How about a nautically themed elevator complete with a porthole mirror or even customized elevator doors made of glass and inscribed with a treasured Biblical/literary quote or favorite saying? The possibilities for home elevator enhancements are truly endless!

Customizable Home Elevator Features to Complement Your Unique Style
If you’ve been mulling over the idea of adding a residential elevator for your new or existing home, you picked the best time to move forward! That’s because there are more customizable options for home elevators today than ever before – ranging from the conservative to the truly offbeat and funky to express your personality and enhance your home’s décor!

Most people are aware that certain features on home elevators can commonly be customized such as cab designs, wall panels, lighting, handrails and button fixtures. However, other customizable home elevator features you might be unaware of include:

  • All-Glass Elevator Cabs 
  • Textured Stainless Steel Cab Interiors
  • Mosaic Tile Floors  
  • Wrought Iron Gates
  • Commercial-Style Doors 
  • Integrated Phone Keypads
  • Custom Murals or Wallpaper 
  • Digital Position Indicators
  • Rod Iron Enclosures  
  • Steel Mesh Raised Laminate Panels
  • Raised Panel Ceilings with LED Lights
  • Custom Weaved Wainscoting
  • Touch Screen Options with Wi-Fi Capability (Coming Soon!)


In addition, elevator entry/exit configurations range from the standard inline with only one opening to front and rear pass through (which allows the user to enter the elevator on one side and exit on the other) and adjacent (which may be necessary when your home’s layout doesn’t allow the landings to line up).

“Every aspect of a home elevator is fully customizable to perfectly match your specific needs and aesthetic preferences,” according to Scott McGee, president of Southeast Elevator, which specializes in residential elevator installation in Florida. “That’s why custom-crafted residential elevators not only provide the perfect solution for increased mobility, accessibility and safety, but also serve as a luxurious addition to your new or existing home.”

Installing a Customized Elevator Will Give Your Home an Added Lift
Adding an elevator to a home is both a functional and financial asset. With the real estate market booming, it is often a challenge to find the home of your dreams available on the market. That’s why people who in the past would consider buying a new home are instead deciding to convert their current residence into their dream home by remodeling or enhancing it with an elevator and becoming part of the “age-in-place” movement. 

As a bonus, a home elevator can increase your property value by 10% or more, according to Retirement Living. In addition, if you eventually decide to put your home on the market, a residential elevator will improve your home’s uniqueness for potential buyers. They will love the idea of having the added perk of moving easily from floor to floor. 

Design a Dream Elevator That Your Neighbors Will Envy
A customized elevator can serve as the showpiece of any home. When seeking the right home elevator, you’ll want one that blends seamlessly into its surroundings. That’s why you will want to choose an established, full-service residential elevator company that offers the highest level of customization to achieve the desired look and functionality you wish to achieve with your home elevator.
