Make the decision to stay in the home you love

We all get to that point when the children have left home and we find ourselves looking around wondering what the future holds and whether we’d be better off in a smaller property. But what about all those memories and the treasured belongings that surround us. What to do?

Downsizing is expensive, moving home is stressful and if you love your home, feel comfortable in the neighbourhood you live in and have a good circle of friends locally, then you really need to think long and hard about whether moving is absolutely necessary. There is less pressure these days to move, instead there’s a definite shift in opinion towards staying put once retired by simply adapting the family home as we grow older.

Today’s mobility solutions are far more considered and integrated than simply installing a functional handrail or a taking delivery of a perching stool. There are a wide range of innovative and exciting products emerging which are designed to adapt your home very discreetly. This means it’s possible to continue living in the family home without the worry of downsizing or moving house.

You can now deal with the inevitable signs of aging that come to us all without impacting your lifestyle choices. UK company Stiltz Homelifts are leading the charge with their range of neat, discreet, quiet and life-changing domestic lifts designed specifically for those who need that little extra help to move around their home.

The design and styling of the homelift is where the Stiltz really earns its stripes. Unlike any other homelift on the market, the product’s elegant look and feel has been designed to be admired but also to blend effortlessly into the background. Curved lines and a warm grey aluminium finish with a matching glazed lift car allows natural light to flood through the home. Also featured is soft blue LED lighting at the top and base of the lift car not just for ambience, but for ease of use at night.

Full of advanced safety features, the Stiltz Homelift comes in two different sizes, the 2-person Duo and the 3-person Trio, which is also wheelchair-friendly if you need to consider this for the future. The smaller homelift can be installed in just one day, and the more spacious Trio, in two days. Stiltz manage all building work and installation using their own teams so all you have to do it sit back … and step inside once all the hard work is done.
