How to Update a Split-Level Ranch


During the 1970's, split levels soared in popularity and today there are still plenty of them on the market, but most of us say we don't like the style or want to live in one. The catch, like in the '70's, you are buying more house for the dollar. What do you do if you own a split-level, love your neighborhood, and don't really want to move? Renovate! Here are some tips on how to transform that 1970's style home:

    Can anyone share a website to show how to update a 1985 split level home. All redecorating or remodeling shows white woodwork and cupboards. Not willing to paint beautiful Oak wood. Any suggestions appreciated.
