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 1 Boys Hope / Girls Hope
Boys Hope/Girls Hope in Baltimore, Maryland, invites students from difficult, at-risk backgrounds to live in a home that provides a safe environment, academic tutoring, mentoring and opportunities to give back to the community. The girls' program, which just accepted its first seven members, does not have a building. The Boys Hope male scholars reached out for help to the Extreme Makeover team to provide a place for the girls in their community that would offer them the same educational and emotional support that they enjoy. Their hope is that this new home away from home will change the lives of these young girls, as well as for future generations of promising young women.
In it’s eight season, Extreme Makeover continues to rebuild America with the quality of KraftMaid cabinetry. The Girls Hope housing was built with custom cabinets by KraftMaid starting in the kitchen where cherry wood, stained in Vintage Onyx was chosen for the cabinets and finished with Pewter Beaded knobs. Maple wood cabinetry was selected for the laundry and spa bathrooms. The neutral Muslin finish was used in these areas with Aluminum and Stainless Steel hardware accenting the wood.
In the library, KraftMaid’s rich, warm Kaffe finish was applied to cherry wood cabinets, which were offset by Timeless glass door inserts and Blackened Pewter knobs. Finally in the study nook, storage cabinets were designed using Sunset, a warm golden hue, completed with Aged Bronze drawer pulls.
