Bi-level remodel with unmatched results


Bi-levels were a very popular home from the 60's-early 90's that took on a very economical floor plan that transfered rising heat from the lower floors to the upstairs. The layout was such a great design that it could be seen all over the country. The only problem was that the walls were always very confining leaving it not to be unique to more modern homes. The kitchens of Bi-levels leave you closely distant from the kitchen to the living room and dining room.

We find that most Bi-level kitchens are:

  • Uninviting

  • Closed off from the rest of the rooms in your home

  • Have poor cross air ventilation when windows are opened

  • Have less natural light flow

  • Is harder for heat/air conditioning air flow to maintain a steady temperature






These photos were taken from a recent remodel where we removed half the wall, constructed a oak countertop and added lights. You can easily see without a before picture what a difference an open floor plan makes. We also added a quick upgrade to the kitchen with new handles, countertop, sink/faucet, floor and tile backsplash. That will be another topic to come on half price kitchen upgrades. It is obviously the most dramatic renovation you can perform to your kitchen.


Benefits to an open kitchen floor plan:

  • Creates an instant modern look to your home.

  • Cross ventilation when windows are open.

  • A full view of your beautiful kitchen.

  • Added value to your home. Open floor plans sell.

  • Added entertaining  area. More seating plus easier communicating with all of your guests.

  • Ability to supervise your children while in the kitchen.

  • Heat and/or air conditioning temperatures are more consistent and stable with an open floor plan.

  • Watch your favorite television shows while preparing meals.

That design really opens up the kitchen and adds loads of counter space. Great idea Bill!

Thanks Jamie! Open floor plans always make rooms appear larger and increase ventilation.

Most kitchens can easily run in that range. It all depends on the line of cabinets your purchase and quality of countertops you prefer. you can also follow my other blogs about half price kitchens if economic times are keeping you from a full kitchen remodel.
