Home lifts are ever growing in popularity, and contrary to popular belief customers are from all stages of life. Some would assume that, like the traditional stairlift, only those older people at the point of crisis with their mobility would choose to install a domestic lift. However, thanks to home lifts being designed to beautifully complement the home and providing style and convenience that all can benefit from, through floor lifts are proving popular with homeowners of all ages.
Here Home Lift Experts look at the stages of the family life cycle when customers are most likely to purchase a domestic lift, and how a lift can help them with their home and lifestyle needs.

With sharp minds and active lifestyles, a cumbersome stairlift does not suit all older people, and those seeking a stylish and smart solution find that the range of modern home lifts available suit their needs perfectly. Compact and discreet, whilst many which are still roomy enough for a walking frame or wheelchair, to fit within almost any home, Stiltz home lifts are a popular choice to make the journey between floors quick and easy.
A very popular age for people to install a domestic lift are those aged between 50 and 60, who are future-proofing their forever home. Often people are renovating their property and looking to how their home will serve them over the next few decades.

It can also be used by anyone and can help with lifting jobs around the home. Lifton home lifts are a great choice for those choosing to future-proof as they perfectly balance usability with style and elegance.
