Extreme Makeover: Home Edition
It all began with a television producer’s phone call asking KraftMaid to help a deserving family in need of a fresh start. Seasons later, we are proud to remain the exclusive cabinetry provider of ABC’s award-winning program, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
Episode 7The Marrero Family
The Marreros are a close-knit family that remains strong and united by the love of their single father, Victor, who has been raising his five boys alone for twelve years. These kids stand out due to the immense respect the have for their father. They’ve managed to bypass the gang related subculture and are very focused on improving their lives. Victor has also started a program for single fathers at a neighboring church where he gives these men advice, encouragement, and resources to become role models to their kids. Unfortunately, Victor has heart and stress problems and has suffered two heart attacks. In this episode, Extreme Makeover builds a comfortable, inspirational, and safe haven for this family to call home.
In the family’s new kitchen and great room, KraftMaid cabinetry was custom made and installed to accommodate this family of men. Cherry wood was chosen and finished in Black Glaze with Brushed Pewter hardware accenting the doors. Birch wood cabinets were outfitted in Victor’s master bath, stained in Moss Glaze and Rectangular Hammered Pewter knobs finished the room.
KraftMaid’s Venicia product line was chosen for additional rooms in the Marerro home including the second floor bath where the Senza door style was used. Selected from the Mirra collection, the Senza was finished in Sterling Gloss and completed with Aluminum Integrated pulls. The laundry room was designed with the Tivoli door style from the Lustra collection. The rich, black finish of Onyx Glaze was accented by Aluminum hardware and Fresco glass door inserts.
