Ever wished you didn’t have to walk downstairs? Well, with one of these creatively designed staircases, you don’t have to walk – you just slide!
What a fantastic idea they are and very cleverly designed, so that both of the slides are in keeping with the design of the stairs. As well as sliding down them, you could also send down your washing via the slide or anything else you have no desire to lug down the stairs.
I love the wooden spiral slide staircase (although, being practical, I wouldn’t want it positioned next to a glass window, just in case of accidents), but the straight slide works very well next to a standard, straight staircase too.
In fact, the second slide staircase was designed by London architect, Alex Michaelis, on the request of his children and is one of the funky additions in the eco-friendly home he built. As well as enjoying sliding down the slide, his kids also have an indoor pool and rock climbing wall, which sounds amazing!
