Your Step-by-Step Guide to Renovating Elevator Cabs

1. Select your new design

Any elevator that wows its users has one thing in common. It pleases them with a unique design. So before you get into other details, ensure you have in mind what your new elevator will look like with the help of 3D rendering. 

Design software helps you lay out your ideas perfectly into designs you’ll love. You can also try K Elevator’s real-time Cab Design Studio to render your customer elevator cab in less than 10 minutes. What’s more? It’s completely free. 

2. Find your dream team

Once you have chalked down your new elevator cab design, it is time to get started. From sourcing the right kind of materials to installing the new cab, it’s important you have the best team of professionals. Select a cab elevator design company that understands your needs and has enough experience to bring your idea to life while considering the safety standards.  


Not sure where to start? Get started by contacting our K Elevator specialists. We will pair you up with one of our best account managers to help you create a brand new elevator design according to your budget and vision. 

3. Choose your materials

Our Cab Design Studio gives you a fair idea of the different materials and finishes available to enhance your elevators. We recommend you browse our Standard Line of premium materials for the elevator’s left, right, and rear wall panels and consult with our in-house designer to create your custom look. 

We are also happy to work with your interior designer to get you the desired output. Whatever your needs, we tailor it for you. To learn more about the different parts of elevator interiors, check out our earlier blog post.

4. Enhance with lighting

Lighting is a big part of your overall cab aesthetics. The last thing you’d want is someone to stand under unflattering lighting. We’ll guide you in choosing the lights that positively lighten up your elevator cabs and offer the passengers a pleasing experience while riding. 

At K Elevator, we use only standard LED for all our lighting. This ensures we maximize efficiencies in energy, cost and durability for our clients. 


5. Keep wear and tear at bay

Now that you have a clear picture of your new elevator cab project, it’s the right time to consider accessories that will protect your interiors from wear and tear. The right kind of elevator cab accessories not only protect against damages but helps in enhancing the interiors as well. 

This can include protection pads, notice holders, and more. You can read more about the effectiveness of accessories in our blog post.


6. Pick a date for onsite survey

Once the purchase order for your new elevator design is finalized, we will be sending one of the team members to complete an elevator survey. This is an important step in the process as it allows us to look into any safety or design issues and offer suggestions to improve the final installation.

7. Get set for installation

Once you approve the final drawings from our onsite survey, we can quickly process them into production. This roughly takes around eight to ten weeks from the date of approval. 


Finally, one of our coordinators will contact you to schedule your most preferred time for the installation. While this might seem like a long wait, the anticipation will pay off once you see your brand new elevator cabs.
