Updating a 70 s split foyer Sexy animated chatbot
If I had my way, I would transplant that space to my kitchen/breakfast nook and have it all one big space. In a the non-renovated tri-level, you walk in to something like this – sunken living room to the left (which I thought was SO cool when we first moved into our tri-level as a kid), family room straight ahead, stairs leading up/down to the right. Everything has been updated – flooring, molding, doors, light fixtures, you name it.
And if you look to the left, you’ll see a peek at the wall that was partially knocked out. Back to the “original” tri-level – if you turn to the left, you’ll see the formal living room and dining room areas.
Or it might look something like this – a bit more updated, but still not open to the family room, like so many of us want in our homes today. But first, a peek at what an “original” tri-level might look like: Or perhaps this: And here is an updated tri-level (with added closet space).
The master bathrooms can vary, and while I would imagine this updated tri-level probably resembled my parents’ old master bathroom, which looked like this before they remodeled: But here are some other possibilities: Here is the updated master bathroom in the remodeled tri-level: I’m blown away at how they made this tri-level current and updated for the way people live today.
I’m not sure what housing looks like in other parts of the country, but here in the midwest (well, in Ohio), the tri-level home was very popular in the 70’s and 80’s.
In fact, I grew up in a tri-level, as did many of my closest friends, now that I stop and think about it.
On the right (upstairs) are the bedrooms along with two bathrooms (master and a shared bathroom). The center area traditionally includes a formal living/dining room, family room, kitchen and a breakfast nook, along with a powder room and a laundry room. At the time these homes were built, formal living and dining rooms were still the trend.
Tri-levels are great in that you get a good amount of square footage, and they’re great family homes.
There are a lot of them on the market around here nowadays, and it’s always interesting to see if they’ve been updated, and if so, how.
It's called a split-level—a style of architecture that's poised for a comeback today.
So what exactly is a split-level house, and why has it endured long after Greg, Jan, Marcia, and the rest of the bunch rolled up their shag rugs and moved on?
Growing up in a home that has a similar floor plan, can I just tell you how much I this? If we go back to the entry area and continue to walk straight back, you’ll find a family room that looks something like this. Or your family room could look like this: In the remodeled tri-level, when you walk straight after coming through the front door, you’ll walk into this space.
