New found independence

On average people in Britain have lived in their home for 15 years*, therefore many of us have put our stamp on the décor, Homelife Stairlifts allow you to customise the seat cover of your stairlift to seamlessly match the existing décor. A stairlift is a major part of many of our lives, so having the option to customise its look and configuration can be as important as its functionality and is an important consideration when buying a stairlift to suit your needs and your home environment.

The importance of your stairlift

The impact a stairlift has on your life is often considered detrimental, on the contrary, a stairlift is designed to give you your independence and freedom back. There are many misconceptions that stairlifts are just for the elderly, in our first blog of this mini-series we delved into the benefits of stairlifts for users.
