Want to future-proof your home?
Investing in mobility aids, such as platform lifts, will not only allow you to maintain an independent lifestyle as you grow older but can also add significant value to your property.
Here we take a look at some of the ways a lifting platform can benefit you both now and in the future.
For many people, getting older means being less mobile.
A platform lift is specifically designed to help older people (and those with reduced mobility) to access the upper levels of their property.
If you need a wheelchair or use a walking stick, installing one of these lifts in your home will enable you to move around your house without having to negotiate the stairs. You won’t have to ask your loved ones or carers to assist you either.
In times gone by, mobility aids were cumbersome and unsightly – but this isn’t the case with modern platform lifts.
They come in all shapes, sizes and colours, and can be tailored to match the ambience of your property – providing a stunning architectural feature.
If you have room to spare, you could opt for a larger lift that can carry a wheelchair or multiple people at once. Not only does this offer practicality but it allows you to make the most of the space available.
Alternatively, if space is at a premium in your home, a compact lift with a smaller footprint is perfect for accessing varying floor heights without compromising on safety or aesthetics.
After choosing your forever home, you want it to be just that – a home to stay in forever and grow old in.
By installing a stylish platform lift, you can effectively eliminate the need to move house in the future. You won’t be forced to leave the house that you raised your children in, nor will you have to leave your community and neighbours.
Even if you’re in good health, and you’re able to climb the stairs unaided, having one of these lifting platforms in your home will benefit your kids, grandkids and weekend visitors. Plus, they can be used for all manner of daily activities – be it moving suitcases and musical instruments upstairs.
While a platform lift will enable you to remain in your home forever – accessing all floor levels with ease – it can also be a superb selling point, should you ever decide to move house.
One of the biggest appeals to properties with a lift installed is that it saves homeowners the hassle (and expense) of making drastic modifications as they get older and less mobile.
