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 23The Brown Family
The Brown family is still recovering from the loss of their talented teen-aged daughter, Alex, to a fatal texting-while-driving accident. Parents Jeanne and Johnny Mac, along with their 12-year-old daughter, Katrina, are dedicated to making sure no other family suffers such heartbreaking loss. The Browns decided to turn their tragedy into something constructive, and travel to local high schools with Alex’s wrecked truck on their flat-bed trailer to remind young people of the dangers of distracted driving. This deserving family’s rundown, double-wide trailer is replaced with a new home when the Extreme Makeover team travels to Texas to help them move on with their lives and support their No Phone Zone call to action.
KraftMaid cabinets were donated to the Brown’s new home, where in the kitchen and great room, birch wood was finished in Natural and accented with Stainless Steel hardware and Bistro glass inserts. Maple cabinets stained in Dove White were installed in the utility room and were embellished with Venetian Bronze Victorian Leaf pulls. This warm metal decorative hardware was also used with the master bathroom’s cherry cabinets, which were finished in KraftMaid’s deep brown Peppercorn.
