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.

Keys to Gorgeous Summer Bath Design

  • Tip #1: Hire an expert designer to take you through the bath design process! Have the project done expertly once, and have a design that lasts your lifetime.
  • Plan your bathroom to utilize as much ambient outside light as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to use white!
  • Natural wood tones add a beautiful, earthy touch to your accents and accessories.
  • While you don’t need many, a few accent lighting fixtures can make a huge difference!
  • If you’re looking for a hint of color and want to buck the “blue and white” motif, try bold, warm tones like roses, reds and pinks.

Inspirations for French Bathroom Design

In our last post, we showed you a glimpse inside one of Peter Salerno’s latest kitchen designs – a beautiful Princeton kitchen featuring custom stonework, lush ambient light and a spacious open floor plan. Today, we’ll show you how we tied those French-inspired design elements into that home’s master bath.

As you can see, we tied in a few core elements of the home’s kitchen design into the bathroom. First, we utilized the light painted cabinetry that Peter was inspired by on his recent trip to the Picardie region of France. We also chose the tile to reflect the kitchen’s custom stonework (a staple of design in Vence). You will also notice the spacious floor plan.

A look to the other region of the bathroom shows a beautiful porcelain tub set between two large windows – once again, to accentuate the copious amount of natural light this home’s location provides. A walk-in shower sits inside the far wall, and fresh linens await the user at every turn. Lastly, the brass fixtures and mounts reflect French design from the Oise region.
