Is a Home Elevator Worth It?

Is a Home Elevator Worth It?

Shore-Line Construction can help make your life easier with a custom home featuring a home elevator. Is this option right for you?

If you are planning on building a waterfront home, there is a chance that you will be creating one with at least two floors. It is not uncommon for Maryland waterfront homes to have three or even four stories to make the most of a narrow lot, a flood zone lot, or gorgeous views. Shore-Line Construction can help make your life easier with a custom home featuring a home elevator. Is this option right for you?


The cost is one factor in whether or not you are willing to invest in this feature. A residential elevator can cost around $32,000 in 2022. On the other hand, you will not need to worry about retrofitting your home with a custom home; it will already be a part of the design, which can save on the total cost. Today’s models are also low-maintenance.

Floor Plan

If you have an inverted floor plan or at least two levels, you might find the cost to be well worth it. An inverted floor plan puts the main living area on the highest level, typically the third floor, while bedrooms are on the second floor. If you want a way to haul groceries and suitcases up in an easier way, an elevator could come in handy.


If you have any concerns about how much a home elevator will eat into your home footprint, you won’t have to worry. You can find elevators in different dimensions, some very sleek and slim. Shore-Line Construction can position a home elevator in a way that will not interfere with the home’s traffic flow.


Another major reason to consider a residential elevator would be mobility. The older one gets, the less one is keen on climbing multiple stairs. If you intend on aging in place in your custom home, or if you have a resident with mobility issues, a home elevator can take all the stress out of making higher floors accessible.
