Elevator interiors, whether in one elevator or a bank of elevators, can be designed to match the decor and ambiance of any building. Deciding what that feeling is can determine whether the elevator interior is energizing and upbeat or calming and relaxing.

Examples:

  • Heading home to your high-rise luxury condo at the end of the day, you'd want a calming elevator cab interior.
  • Heading to work in an office building each morning, you'd want to be energized.
  • If the designer has incorporated the energy of the building into the design, then many individuals are subconsciously being prepared for their business at hand.

A lot of thought and energy goes into designing an elevator interior. Conversations with business owners and tenants can help determine the general use of the elevator, and steer design decisions. Doing so can assist a designer in knowing which building and fire codes one must adhere to as well as providing information on the best energies to include in such the elevator's interior design.

Choosing products for durability as well as aesthetics is extremely important as you need your investment to last.
