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 20The Suggs Family
Soon after Derrick and Amanda Suggs got married and started a family, they got a call that Amanda’s four younger brothers were being taken away from their parents by child services due to substance abuse. Derrick and Amanda knew right away that the boys should come stay with them so they would have an opportunity to succeed. The young couple took on the role of parents and gave the boys a stable home. However the house they call home is crumbling and dangerous, with cracks, leaks, exposed wiring and a sinking foundation. The Suggs have taken out a mortgage and tried fixing different parts of the house several times but it is so old that starting from scratch is the only way to make it completely safe. The Extreme Makeover team traveled to South Carolina to rebuild a home so this extended family can stay under one roof.
The Suggs’ spacious new kitchen was designed with KraftMaid cabinetry, in the soft green Willow stain, accented by Bistro glass door inserts and Aluminum Round Bar pulls. Maple wood cabinets were selected for the living and dining rooms, where Canvas, a creamy white painted finish, was the chosen stain. The bathroom cabinets were designed in medium brown tones, with cabinetry finished in Praline and Chestnut.
