SliderRider: Foldable Mat Turns Stairs Into Slide

If you envy those houses with built-in slide, you don’t need anymore. Designed by Trisha Cleveland, SlideRider is an innovative concept which transforms almost any staircases into slides and folds up when not in use. Besides multiple folding mats that can be laid over angular steps to create a smooth surface, it also has a weighted top and grippy bottom to keep everything securely in place and a cushioned bottom pad for a soft landing. To install it, simply unfold the padded base to cover your stairs, assemble the safety bumpers, and it’s ready to ride. When you’re done, just fold it up with the included storage strap, and tuck it away for the next ride. Sounds attempting? Find more information on Quirky.com.

Others downsize due to increases in the cost of living – because they want to live in a different, more expensive area, or because by selling a large property they can afford to buy two smaller ones, thereby giving them either a holiday home or a rental income.
