Today more than any other time, non-conformity in home décor is celebrated. Who says we can’t put a slide in the house? Including a unique feature, items add not only interest but value.
Whether you’re renovating or building new, unique perks like a dog washing station or a staircase slide separates your home from typical cookie-cutter layouts. If you’re in a neighborhood with house after house of standard floorplan layouts, your renovation should include design elements that distinguish it from the rest.
Who Would Enjoy a Staircase Slide?
Adding a slide would sure keep the kids busy during family gatherings. As long as the youngest ones have an adult watching them trek up the steps, the children could be happily occupied.
It’s not only the kids that will find it fun; you may have a goofy pet that will as well. Remember to video fido’s or kitty’s slide down the stairs, you never know, it could go viral.
Then there’s those with aching bones and sore knees – what a handy way to go down the stairs when you’re not well.
Here’s a crazy way to use your slide, send a bundle of laundry down on it! Put the laundry in a laundry bag, and let it go.
Let’s review the reasons and benefits to add a staircase slide:
- Added value to your home
- It distinguishes your home from others in the neighborhood
- It’s an indoor play center for the kids
- The entertainment value when you have company
- Aching bones and sore knees may appreciate the slide versus the steps
- Your arthritic pets, with or without assistance could use it
- Embracing your inner creative side in your home’s decor can be freeing
