Home Elevator, Yea or Nay?

Good Questions

Q: I would like to ask your opinion on whether I should put a home elevator in my 3 floor + basement house that is going to be built soon. The architect is designing it now. My husband seems to think it is necessary but even though I Google searched immensely for a nice-looking elevator, I have not found anything that I would even consider putting in my house.

Besides that, the elevator was designed in a rather prominent position in the house by the architect. I don't know what to do. Have you seen a nice-looking elevator anywhere? A link would help, to use as a reference because most likely I will not be able to find it here in Greece. Thanks in advance.
