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 Tom Family
Susan Tom didn’t set out to adopt children with special needs, but somehow they found each other. But taking in children with physical challenges hasn’t been easy, especially in their logistically awkward home. With three of her seven children in wheelchairs, just getting up the stairs is a problem. Not to mention cooking for eight people on a four burner stove in a tiny kitchen. In this episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition the team remodels the Tom family home to meet the special needs of each individual child and make a more comfortable space for a loving mother.
Redesigned with KraftMaid cabinetry, the bathrooms, kitchen and laundry room have been custom-made to suit the Toms. The kitchen’s new maple cabinets were finished in KraftMaid’s Toffee - a creamy brown hue that lends an inviting feel to this gathering area. Cascade style glass inserts add to the appeal of the new cabinetry. The bathrooms were completed with maple and birch wood cabinets with the sleek, clean lines of chrome and steel pulls. The laundry room no longer lacks storage space with newly installed Bridgeport style cabinets, finished in Amber Glaze.
