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.

Season 6

Episode 7The Martinez Family

When Dawn Martirez was young, she knew her destiny was in helping children. But, what she didn’t know is, after years of caring for other people’s sick children, fate would ultimately give her two children of her own to care for, each with their own rare genetic disorder.

The Martirez home’s narrow hallways, steep stairs and single, handicapped inaccessible bathroom are posing great problems for them. The twins could play outside more, but the steep and crumbling driveway also poses problems for them. Now is a crucial time for them developmentally and they are afraid their home is actually slowing the boys’ development.

In this episode of Extreme Makeover Home Edition, the team travels to Missouri to rebuild a home for a family with two special needs children and their family that struggles to care for them.

The Martirez home was built to suit the needs of their growing children and includes KraftMaid cabinetry in many rooms. In the kitchen, as well as the hearth room, cherry wood cabinets, stained in Chocolate were installed. Brushed Copper hardware and Bistro glass door insert accented the warm brown tones in both rooms. In the basement, Vintage Dove White was chosen to stain the cherry cabinets which were completed with Brushed Copper Classic knobs.

Brushed Copper knobs and pulls were used in the new master bathroom, where the dark Peppercorn finish was selected for the cabinetry. Finally, Venicia by KraftMaid cabinetry was chosen to equip the family’s coffee shop, in the Corressa and Capri door styles. Cool blues and greys were selected with Oceana and Graphite Gloss finishes accented by sleek Aluminum hardware.
