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 11The Novak Family
An hour later, Jeff brought their newborn into bed for a feeding. But Jackie didn’t wake up. She was pronounced dead at age 28 of a pulmonary embolism, leaving Jeff with their three little girls in a house where he might not be able to stay.
The Novak house has many issues including raw sewage annually filling up the basement, the only shower leaks into the kitchen and family room and the windows pose a huge safety concern. Without screens or air conditioning in the home, Jeff has to leave them propped open Ð a definate risk with three curious toddlers.
In this episode, the show that brought the Novaks together on Sundays will be the show that keeps the Novaks together in a home that is made suitable for three growing girls and a single parent.
The bedrooms, bathroom, foyer and the girls’ playroom were all redesigned using KraftMaid’s own recessed center panel door style cabinets in White Thermofoil. White ceramic knobs were the perfect accent to complete the clean new look in these rooms.
In the kitchen and laundry room, a warmer feeling was achieved with Maple cabinetry, finished in Toffee with stainless steel bar pulls and the textured Cascade glass inserts. Jeff’s new office area received a similar new look, with cherry wood cabinets finished in the darker Kaffe color.
