Basements have a reputation for being spooky, spooky, or just plain nasty, but a cleverly placed indoor slide has a family’s basement evoking fun and excitement instead.
Instagram account @spoiledrottenhomes, whose owner is a contractor, shared videos of his latest renovation project: a kitchen with a slide hidden under the counter. Their videos show a seemingly ordinary kitchen with a teal kitchen island. Nothing unusual at all – until they opened the cabinet door, revealing a giant hole inside. The owner then descends the slide, ending up in the basement at the other end.
A before and after shows the difference between the old kitchen and the new. The contemporary look makes the space feel fresh and inviting, while the slide adds an element of entertainment the old kitchen didn’t have.
As for the basement, the clips show it quite empty, leading the account’s followers to speculate on the owners’ plans. “Make a ball pit,” said one comment, while others suggested the family use the slide as a laundry chute to make the chore easier.
However, not everyone agreed with the idea. We were worried that someone would bang their head against the edge of the counter. And, since it’s a basement, there was still paranoia about monsters using the slide as a tunnel.
“All I could think of is. What if it’s 3am, you’re half asleep and just grabbing a drink from the fridge and you hear a noise coming from the basement? »
Still, a secret slide in the kitchen is a good idea, especially for a family with young children. Is there any chance they can fit a swing and hanger bars in there?
