Design Your Personal Elevator to Match Your Home’s Style

Design Your Personal Elevator to Match Your Home’s Style

A residential elevator can add beauty and elegance to your home. It can be used as a focal point or crafted to blend into the overall decorative scheme. There are a number of features you can customize to match the elevator decor with the architectural style and interior design of your residence.

Customize Your Personal Elevator

Symmetry Elevating Solutions offers a wide variety of natural woods, including Birch, Maple, Oak, Hickory, Cherry and Mahogany. Several stains are also available that accentuate the wood’s natural look. Classic panel styles let you match the elevator car to your home’s design scheme. 

Steel and glass are also attractive materials that can be used in a variety of ways to customize an elevator. Glass is contemporary and complements almost every architectural style. You can accentuate its elegant look with hardware and framing in materials such as wood or stainless steel. The transparency of glass lets in light, enhancing the beauty of the structure. There are safety requirements for using glass, so work early in the planning process with a professional residential elevator contractor to make sure that this material is suitable for your site.

Personal Touches to Customize Your Home Elevator

To drive cohesiveness in your interior design, there are a number of aesthetic details you can refine. As far as flooring materials, you have the option to carry the flooring of your home into the elevator. Wood, stone and tile are attractive flooring options. Be sure to work with your home elevator contractor to ensure the flooring material is within recommended weight limits. Add an antique area rug for a classic touch or wall-to-wall carpeting for a warm look.

Inset LED lights are standard features on all Symmetry elevators and function as emergency lighting. However, you can enhance the lighting with a fixture of your choice to personalize the look, create an ambience and complement the materials of the elevator car.

Hardware pulls the design together. Fixtures including handrails, hall call stations and car operating panels are available in several metal finishes and colors. Metal finishes range from the clean, modern appeal of Stainless Steel to the warm tones of Vintage Bronze. The sleek finish of Blackened Stainless Steel complements glass, wood and other metals.

Symmetry Elevating Solutions designs and builds each elevator to your specifications. Your local home elevator company will work with you to review your options, review material samples or even to assist you in visiting a showroom. Through this process, you will be able to customize the décor so that your home elevator reflects your personal style.
