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 8The Swenson-Lee Family
One year ago, the Swenson-Lees were a family of three. Within a year, they gave birth to twins and moved their four nieces and nephews into their home after their mother was murdered. Recently, the family found out they are expecting another child. Within a year, this family of three has grown to a family of ten. Although the family’s home is nice, it is much too small to accommodate them. In this episode, the Extreme Team travels to Minneapolis, Minnesota for an old fashioned renovation. Adding on to their existing home will give this family the space and security they need to grow into a family of ten.
The Swenson-Lee’s new expanded home will be completely remodeled and include KraftMaid custom cabinetry in many rooms. The kitchen and laundry rooms were designed with cherry wood cabinets in KraftMaid warm, brown Kaffe finish. Satin Nickel Bow pulls accent the doors in both rooms.
The home’s four new bathrooms were also in need of plenty of cabinetry to accommodate this growing family. Maple wood was chosen for two bathrooms with Brushed Pewter hardware adorning the doors. The off-white Frost Glaze stain was used in the first, while Ginger Glaze, a honey-toned finish completed the second. Finally, the dark brown Peppercorn was chosen for the final bathroom’s cherry wood cabinets, accented by Aluminum Half Round pulls.
