How to Pick the Right Elevator Cab Interior

If you find yourself in a situation where you have to pick an elevator cab interior, it can be stressful to find the right fit. The process of remodeling an elevator cab is a large cost commitment. Choosing the right solution is the best way to get your money’s worth and make the investment count.

Luckily, choosing the right elevator cab interior isn’t as difficult as you might think whether you’re upgrading or starting from scratch. Not sure whether it’s the right time to upgrade your elevator cab interior? Take a look at these 5 signs it may be time.

We can break down the process of selecting a cab interior into two basic steps: evaluating your needs and choosing your design.

Evaluating Your Elevator Cab Interior Needs

When deciding on which elevator cab interior is right, you have to consider the situations where the cab will be used. Some questions to consider that may affect the elevator cab interior that you select include:

Will it stand the test of time?

It’s important to ask yourself the amount of traffic that your elevator cab will see. While some elevators only move a handful of people, others can move hundreds, if not thousands, daily. Furthermore, some cabs are built for transporting humans only, while others may be carrying freight more often than not. These factors can all affect the material you choose for your elevator cab interior, as you need to choose the right fit to stand the test of time based on your usage.

Who are your passengers?

Understanding your user base is equally as important as understanding your rate of traffic. Take into consideration whether it will be the same group of people making use of your elevator cab daily, or if the users changes frequently, especially if it includes high-profile or important clients. An elevator cab interior, believe it or not, can definitely leave an impression!

Will there be necessary maintenance?

When choosing the perfect elevator cab interior, do not forget about upkeep and general maintenance. If your cab is located somewhere like an outdoor parking garage, it may make more sense to choose an interior that can be easily wiped down whereas if it were in an easily accessible and temperature-controlled office building, you could choose a more aesthetic option.

Are you looking at replacement or refinishing options down the line?

Sometimes, no matter what we do for protection, things will happen. In this case, things can be deep scratches or other sorts of interior damage. This is especially true in high traffic elevator cab interiors. When looking for the right elevator cab, it might be wise to consider whether you’d be able to easily fix or replace elements should any damage occur. 


At this stage, you should also consider things to discuss with the contractor installing your elevator cab interior. Perhaps you have a certain budget to stay under, or a time frame the new interior must be installed by. Ensure you have these notes prepared for when you are ready to start shopping.

Choosing Your Elevator Cab Interior Design

Do you have an aesthetic in mind?

A great place to start when thinking of elevator cab design is whether you have an overall design style in mind for the look. Are you thinking of a contemporary style? What about a minimalistic look? Have you thought about bold, or simply a classic design?

Do you already have a colour scheme?

Maybe you want your elevator cab to match your existing colour scheme. Maybe you want it to have its own. Either way, when choosing an ideal elevator cab interior, your choice of colour would be a foundational element of your design.
