Home lift solutions are the ideal solution for anyone with mobility issues, and companies like Lifta have made these types of solutions easily accessible to everyone. Despite their increased popularity and overwhelming benefits, there are still plenty of misconceptions around. These range from costs through to safety and installation concerns which is why we think it’s important to break them down so that you are better positioned to make the best decision for you and your home.

Misconception #1: Home lifts are unaffordable

While it might have been previously true, home lift solutions are now an affordable option. Through improvements in technology regarding design, size, and functionality, combined with increased competition future-proofing your home is now a viable option. There are also a variety of options available, so finding the right solution for both your home and your budget is far easier than you may think.

And if electricity costs are one of your concerns, Lifta’s home lifts are super energy efficient. They operate by way of a normal 220V plug, and there is no need for 3-phase power!

 Misconception #2: Home lifts are unsafe

If you have visions of crashing to the ground as they do in the movies, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Safety is one of the most important aspects of a home lift, which is why every Lifta home lift solution is equipped with several safety features. Each lift has various sensors, from ensuring your lift is not out of balance to weight and balance sensors that ensure safety is the number one priority.

Misconception #3: Complicated installation process

Another misconception people have is that a home lift installation involves major construction and upheaval. One of the key advantages of Lifta Home Lifts is their shaftless design. Unlike traditional lifts, which require a dedicated shaft or machine room, Lifta lifts can be installed anywhere in your home without the need for major structural alterations.

All of their home lifts can be installed within two days, and their unique rail support means there is no need to build an expensive and messy shaft. Due to their design and simplicity of installation, Lifta’s home lifts can be installed after your house has been built, which means that you don’t need to worry about retrofitting your home to accommodate a lift.

Misconception #4: Lifts detract from the aesthetics and take up space

Thanks to its slim and sleek design, Lifta Home Lifts can be installed anywhere in your house. They can even be installed in a variety of unusual locations, such as a storeroom, wall unit, or any other compact space. The Due Home Lift has a tiny footprint of just 0.8 square meters, with a carrying capacity of 170kgs, while the Trio is only 1.3 square meters, with a carrying capacity of 250kgs, so we can tick off any concerns over space. With a wide range of installation options available, there’s no limit to the ways you can integrate a home lift solution into your home.

A final note

Home lift solutions are the ideal way to ensure that you continue to live independently and safely in your own home. The affordable solutions are safe, easy to install, and not only add value to your life but to your home as well.
