Using reclaimed tin in kitchen designs: just one way Peter Salerno Inc. creates the custom range hood of your dreams.

But what will you do to take your dream kitchen to the next level? What will make your kitchen the one-of-a-kind custom creation that will truly make it the envy of your guests?

Experts like Peter Salerno, CMKBD, agree that a custom range hood for your cooktop and range is the perfect statement piece to adorn any truly unique kitchen design.

“The hood and refrigerator are key elements in creating the ultimate kitchen,” Peter Salerno Inc. notes. “We have our own designs custom-made to our exact specifications so each of our clients has one-of-a-kind pieces, made right here in New Jersey.”

A custom range hood, when created masterfully, reflects the taste and personal style of the kitchen’s owner while adding a tone of elegance and unique backstory to your kitchen.

Imagine being able to tell your family, friends and guests that your range hood is made from reclaimed tin collected from classic gas stations along Route 66. Think about the elegant, opulent story your kitchen will tell if your range hood is custom-made from materials taken from a speakeasy once owned by Al Capone or an historic jazz club in New Orleans.

Your kitchen can tell these stories with its very own custom range hood, designed exclusively for you by Peter Salerno Inc. and its network of master craftsmen and artisans. Working with its own staff of skilled artisans, as well as industry leaders and innovators like Rangecraft, Peter Salerno Inc. will create a state-of-the-art, unique range hood for your kitchen that is both fully functional and truly one-of-a-kind.

Kitchen Design Spotlight Series: “Farm Meets City Sleek”

Kitchen Design Spotlight Series: “Farm Meets City Sleek”

In our first edition of the Kitchen Design Spotlight Series, Design Your Lifestyle featured a traditional kitchen with some well-placed modern aesthetic features called “The Angles Are In the Details”.

Our second Kitchen Design Spotlight Series piece focuses on a spectacular kitchen design photo gallery that manages to combine rustic charm with uptown chic. “Farm Meets City Sleek” is a lustrous transitional kitchen designed by the team at Peter Salerno Inc. – the most award-winning custom kitchen and bath design firm in North America of the last 15 years.

One’s first glance at this transitional kitchen design is bathed in white and ambient light, a nod to the recent kitchen design trend where whites and neutrals are used as the primary focus of the overall color design scheme. From the custom Maestro Rosolino cabinetry (a trademark of Peter Salerno Inc. design) to the kitchen island base, this kitchen is adorned with white.

Notes of gray and neutral complement the design, through the custom range hood and counter to the island countertop and wood flooring. One of our favorite aspects of this kitchen design is the 2×8 mixed metal and glass mosaic backsplash over the range, created by the team at Stratta, the Tile Boutique.

The appliance features are a mix of the finest names in kitchen appliance furnishings: Miele, Sub-Zero and Wolf. We also adore the statement island lighting, a series of Exter 16-Jar Pendants from Pottery Barn. As an added bonus to the homeowners, that gorgeous wood flooring is actually the existing floor in the kitchen.

This Peter Salerno Inc. transitional kitchen design is reminiscent of upscale “farm to table” dining, with a touch of countryside charm melded into a truly modern kitchen design. We hope you love it as much as we do!

As we stated in another recent article, the best thing about Pantone color trend reports is designing with them! With that in mind, why don’t we start taking a look at how the best kitchen designers in the world are drawing inspiration from the Pantone Spring 2020 fashion color trend report.

With 2020 Pantone Color of the Year Classic Blue leading the charge, Spring 2020 provides a refreshing and diverse array of Pantone colors. From the alluring heat of Flame Scarlet to the deep purple of Grape Compote, it’s hard to recall a more diverse color palette than Pantone’s Spring 2020 in recent memory.

That being said… we’re starting with the classics.

Classic Blue – a dependent, sturdy tone. Sunlight – a blushing yellow/tan that borders on neutral. Brilliant White – a radiant white with a blue undertone. Ash – a rock-solid medium gray. Lark – a versatile and warm tan neutral.

Let’s see what award-winning kitchen and bath design firm Peter Salerno Inc. can do with these fashionable Spring 2020 colors in mind.

Note: An original article on this gorgeous transitional kitchen design was posted here on September 9, 2019. Since then, the design has become a reality, with more and more reveals happening on Peter Salerno Inc.’s social media as the weeks pass. We wanted to keep you updated, and flash back to the original installation article – which has some amazing videos and photos! Enjoy!

— Original 9/19/2019 article content —

The team at Peter Salerno Inc. employed a massive boom to install a world-class luxury glass countertop in a high-rise kitchen overlooking Manhattan. The videos must be seen to be believed!

Peter Salerno Inc. is the most award-winning American custom kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century, with awards from prestigious organizations like the NKBA, Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Signature Kitchens & Baths. For this particular kitchen design, the task was at once simple and complex. The simple part: installing a fabulous kitchen counter from Galaxy Glass & Stone.

The hard part? Getting that luxurious, hand-crafted counter to a high-rise apartment overlooking the gorgeous skyline of Manhattan.

Team members from Peter Salerno Inc. and Galaxy Glass & Stone decided to hoist the countertop using the assistance of a massive boom crane, delicately lifting the counter up the side of the luxury apartment building. From there, the crew carefully brought the counter inside the apartment, and completed the kitchen installation.

The result was well worth the effort. The clients now have a one-of-a-kind conversation piece as the centerpiece of their kitchen design!

The beautiful countertop is laced with metal, then topped with glass for an industrial, transitional look. The counter blends nicely with the custom range hood on the kitchen’s feature wall, and plays well against the rich brown cabinetry, drawers, and kitchen island base.

Peter Salerno’s personal trademarks abound in this kitchen design. From the recessed soffit above the kitchen island to the clean, neutral color scheme, this transitional kitchen provides eye-popping features and design elements that transcend simple trends. It’s important to have a kitchen design that takes current design trends and implements them in a way that becomes timeless.

Making a Luxury Kitchen Feel Personal With Custom Design

Making a Luxury Kitchen Feel Personal With Custom Design

There are so many ways to make kitchen design feel luxurious. But there are only a handful of ways to make luxury kitchen design feel personal to YOU. If your forever kitchen doesn’t feel like your forever kitchen, then what’s the point?

True luxury starts and ends with you. What you place value on is a question only you can answer – the same should hold true of your dream kitchen design. It’s why the truly elite kitchen design companies start their design process with questions, not suggestions. “Cookie cutter” high-end kitchen design is great for flipping houses or looking just like your neighbor down the street. But if you want a truly standout kitchen design that speaks to your life, your loves and your definition of luxury, then personalized custom design features are crucial to your kitchen.

Hiring a world-class custom kitchen and bath designer like Peter Salerno is a great way to ensure your home kitchen design is both elegant and personally distinctive. The “new” trend of personalizing luxury kitchen design is a staple of Peter Salerno Inc.’s vision since 1997. Peter’s own home kitchen is even adorned with hand-painted floral arrangements on each of his custom cabinets – one to signify the birth month of each of his family members.

In a recent luxury kitchen design feature on Instagram, Peter Salerno Inc. outlined a recent kitchen design project in which the homeowner worked hand-in-hand with Peter Salerno to create a truly unique, luxury masterpiece of a home kitchen.

The design started by incorporating furniture pieces, screens and vintage items to be converted into portions of the luxury kitchen design. (For example, look above to the beautiful mantle that became part of this one-of-a-kind custom range hood!) By centering the design around the clients, their desires, needs, and what they found to be aesthetically beautiful, Peter Salerno and his team were able to begin construction on a kitchen design that was both marvelous and guaranteed to be impossible to duplicate.

We are in love with the custom cabinetry in this kitchen design – especially considering they weren’t cabinets to begin with at all! The original blue screens featuring ornate elephant patterns were carefully crafted into front panels of new, high-end custom kitchen cabinets, creating a series of pieces throughout the kitchen that were both unique and personal to the homeowners.

“Making a kitchen completely personal is something Peter Salerno Inc. is known for,” Peter Salerno Inc.’s Instagram remarks – and the photos above are no exception. Peter envisioned a new use for a classic book shelf, transforming it into a beautiful server for this showstopping kitchen. Add in the incredible custom island sink, statement pendant lighting and dazzling turquoise soffit feature, and you have a custom, luxurious kitchen design that speaks directly to the heart of its owners.

Isn’t it your turn to transform your home’s kitchen into your forever kitchen, that’s both luxurious and personal to you? Talk to an expert.
