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 3The Johnson Family
Both Eric and Elaine Johnson have dedicated their lives to rescuing family life and marriage. The Johnson’s began a marriage and family counseling non-profit called Optimum Lifestyle, with the goal of strengthening marriages in fun, creative ways. Their couples’ seminars have possibly saved 1500 marriages and kept countless kids from growing up in single-parent homes. Eric and Elaine continued their mission while living in their dangerously dilapidated house, which endured further damage from Hurricane Ike. Now the Extreme Makeover design team helps to make their home safe and functional for their five daughters as well as their counseling service.
Custom cabinetry by KraftMaid was donated to the Johnson’s new home and classroom counseling facility. In the kitchen and class room, maple cabinets were chosen, stained in Dove White. Aluminum Round Bar pulls and and Satina glass inserts were used in the class room, while the kitchen was adorned with Brushed Pewter hardware and Bistro glass inserts. Eric and Elaine’s master bath was designed with KraftMaid’s Kaffe finish, a warm, rich brown applied to maple cabinets, embellished by Satin Nickel Football knobs and Mirage mirror door inserts. Both the laundry room and the counseling waiting room were designed with White Thermofoil cabinets, completed with Aluminum Round Bar pulls.
