Home elevators range in size, from 12-18 sq. feet. Hydraulic elevators tend to require a bit more space to make room for the elevator’s motor. A pneumatic elevator requires only enough space for the cab itself. Hydraulic elevators can be concealed from view, with various appearance options. Pneumatic elevators are usually clear plastic or glass. Pneumatic elevators are smaller than shaft elevators, allowing installation in tighter spaces.
