Steven Levine, CMKBD is President of Euro-Plus Design, Inc., a residential kitchen and bathroom design firm established in 1990 in Needham, MA.

College educated as an Industrial Engineer at Northeastern University, Levine graduated with a BS degree in 1978 as a member of Alpha Pi Mu, the Industrial Engineering Honor Society and a member of Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity. Steve has both Co-operative education engineering experience and full-time engineering experience in corporate environments having worked for Analog Devices, The Stop&Shop Companies, Honeywell, Trans World Airlines, Chomerics, and AMP.

Pursuing a life-long interest in residential space planning, Steve left corporate engineering and settled into a new role applying his industrial engineering training to residential design working with a kitchen and bathroom showroom in Metrowest Boston, a progressive and fiscally demanding market. The result of infusing residential design with engineering efficiency has been a 27 year success story of clients improving and enjoying their "living space" as most had never anticipated possible.

Through industry training and application of his drafting and specification skills Levine earned his CKD (Certified Kitchen Designer), CBD (Certified Bathroom Designer), and CMKBD (Certified Master Kitchen and Bathroom) credentials from the NKBA, the National Kitchen and Bath Association, (www.NKBA.org).

In 1990, when faced with the reality that his partners of 10 years in the showroom had not been behaving ethically in various aspects of the business, Levine walked away from the showroom he had designed and built to be one of Boston's most distinguished, and started Euro-Plus Design, Inc., (www.euro-plus.com). From the start, and to this day, Levine has maintained a focus on function, quality materials, proper construction practices, and durable style as the sequence of decisions to be made while arriving at a budget/estimated cost. "You can take any well designed functional space and you can stylize that space to be a magazine cover photo. However, you cannot say that every magazine cover represents a well designed functional space." Levine would ask a simple question, "if it doesn't work well why would you invest to build it?"

Levine, his wife and two sons have resided in Madison, CT since 2003 and with his design associate located in Wayland, MA, Susan Brisk, CKD, ASID, they provide design and project facilitation services to satisfied clients in MA and CT.
